Hey guys, sorry for the long-winded message but please bear with me :)
I am suffering from pretty strong left-sided groin and abdominal pain, radiating down into my left testicle and also into my left kidney. A hernia has been rulled out by my Gp after physical examination and ultrasound, although after seeing a private urologist he suspects I might have gilmore's groin. The pain came on after lifting a piece of heavy machinery, rather awkwardly due to someone else's carelessness. It comes on during exercise and forces me to stop from the pain. This happened about 2 months ago.
Now rewind a year, and I was about to undergo varicocele embolization for left-sided varicocele. Having experienced intermittent bouts of groin, left testicular and abdominal pain previous to this, the varicocele was seen to have been the probable cause of the pain in the groin. After the operation the groin and abdomen pain was a lot worse, with a gradual move back into exercise possible after about a month, then full recovery about 2 1/2 months later. However the varicocele still remained!!
I suspect that I might have had some sort of abdominal muscular weakness, which the embolization temporarily aggravated, and now has been majorly exacerbated by this incident of improper heavy lifting. I am almost 20years of age, and a very active person usually, doing mainly cycling and swimming. The pain does not seem to be getting any better, only with fluctuating periods of improvement/ worsening pain.
Can anyone please offer some advice??
Thank you very much, Georgy
