Varicocele diagnosis?

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. gee my testosterone count came back at 443, that is horrible right? Every doctor I saw said Varicocles dont effect testosterone, before this I guarantee I had about 1,100


  2. There appears to be two veins that wrap around my left testicle and feels oddly shaped. These are not visible on my right one as that one feels more normal. Is this a Varicocele? My left testicle seems to have more mass to it and that is where most of the discomfort seems to comes from. I just went to a urologist but did not do an ultrasound.... I may go back and ask for one.

    most likely

  4. I've had a varicocele for years. So long that I can't ever remember not having it. It has never affected my sex drive nor my ability to pitch a tent. It was diagnosed by digital exam and the only comment was it may affect sterility. It has never caused me pain but left nut is a little smaller.

    an estimated 15% of men have a varicocle, but most dont know they have it unless they have a test, the problem is for those who have it most likely grades 2 and 3, I wouldnt be surprised if the people with grades 2 and 3 had grade 1's and they didnt know it and something aggraveted it and it got bigger

    Dont worry about fertility too much. usually men will have varicoceles,but they dont know about them until somehting causes it bigger and brings changes in the body as we are alll feeling now.
    If nothing aggrevates varicoceles,men dont know about it and they live normally and wownt face any problems, thats why doctors dont care about them, But they dont know that something aggrevated varicoceles and that why we are suffering.

  10. what are other symptoms people felt after getting their varicocle or a lowered testosterone

    I just feel so ****ed up and out of it like I cant comprehend anything

    did anyone else feel like this?

    I also got varioceles, ie dilated veins but they dont show above testicle, but under testicle like a bag of worms (gubernacular veins). Also testicles are smaller and softer than before and they are always tight, not loose hanging. Also they are reddish and warmer than before. 2 years ago i got a kick in the groin which i think messed up the veins causing reflux.

    I literally went into andropause over night, with panic attacks, sweatings and no its not psychosomatic i got my ass kicked several times before and never suffered pshycological trauma, but this time. One thing i notice is that penile glans are affected with low testosterone once i push my levels up to normal, in a month or so they start to look like before ie regrowth of nerves, epithelial. Once i stop it dry out. My first morning reading total testosterone was 400 ng/dl 15? nmol/l. Ive been to a few public urologist but they refuse any testings. Ive been to one endocrinolog and got some LH readings, they were elevated.

    My grandpa is 94 and got 340 ng/dl. My father is 64 has 700 ng/dl and above. Im going to a private clinic this week because public urologists are utterly worthlesss. Only thing that can fix this seems to be money. I really hope there isnt permanent damage after 2-3 years with this ****. Clomid works great pushing levels to normal (feeling ok) no lethargy and little libido, once i stop clomid i go through andropause again with panic attacks, sweating, clinical depression, but i dont want to self medicate for the rest of my life. Problem for me is if they want testing before ie hormonal levels and stuff im probably screwed because of the clomid, i cant afford stopping it, i cant think while off clomid and it ****s up life real quick.

    Now i know how it feels getting old over a night i was 29 at the time, raging libido morning erections energy etc. I live in sweden where testosterone hormonal therapy is in the same league as heroine. Women get estrogen almost routinely when they complain of hot flashes. Im gonna self medicate this **** if it doesnt turn out well, then i probably die in prison.
