I m MSM in Europe (Ger) and visited a Brazilian escort service in February who gets around a lot in Europe. He confirms he is HIV neg, and usually careful and tested regulary. I bottomed, he used a condom, but also a lot of spit (directly inside) because we had not much lube. 3 days after, I got a very itchy spot in that area, I thought of bedbug bite but now from memory looks like herpes pix on the internet. It vanished quickly without problem.
4 weeks later, serious rectal trouble began. The rectum seems to be always full, there is an urge to go to toilet every time, even if there is nothing. If going to toilet is successful, there is diarrhoea, the stool is virtually liquid. That's for two months now, having to go to toilet apprx 10 times a day.
I went to several doctors, there has even be a complete coloscopy! Negative, everything fine to the doctors! I did a extensive swab / blood STD test at the local health office. Everything "ok", which is very disturbing considering symptoms persist.
1.) My first doc ignored my STD worries, suspected a serious bacterial infection and gave me Ciprofloxacin 500 for 5 days, 2 pills a day, not based on any examination results ("That should kill the most likely stuff."). I did those STD tests at the health office after 2 days ( = 4 pills ) of this antibiotic cycle. Could this lead to a false-negative PCR Chlamydia result of the rectal swab, while LGV bacteria still persisting in the lymph nodes?
2.) Since I feel there is permanently some kind of (external?) pressure on the rectum, could a CT scan of the bowl pay off? Maybe recognizing LGV affected lymph nodes? Another tests giving hints?
3.) Assuming I have LGV which does not get diagnosed and treated, is the "tertiary stage" with severe rectum injuries unavoidable? I'm 40, no other health problems. When I read descriptions of LGV, I wonder if the secondary stage also has symptom-free phases or the affected lymph nodes somehow calm down somewhen. Thank you.
