|As I read your posting, the hair on my arms begun raising. I have been suffering from a minor pain on my right epididymis for about ten years now; roughly. I have seen about five doctors in the past six months, as my pain suddenly exploded after lifting a heavy entertainment center, which in turn left me immobile, do to pain, for almost two months. According to kaiser - and their incompetent staff (reasons I rather not discuss) - my pain is do to anything other than a hernia, even though there is an existing history of hernia within my immediate family's men. All I know is that, I have tried everything from anti-biotic to physical therapy, nothing has helped. Time and again, I am left with the excruciating pain in my epididymis to tell the story.
All I can say is that, the pain is not in my head!
Another thing - I would not suggest removing your epididymus for any unknown reason, , unless of course, you know for a fact it is your epididymus that is causing the pain. There is a major chance that even after removal, your nervous system may still shoot pain signs to your brain... You would not want that for the rest of your life!
I continue to search for an answer to this problem, and understand, if I find any leads to what the symptoms is leading me to, unlike kaiser's incompetent staff, I will share it!
p.S. Please let me know if you too find any leads.
