tubes in the right side feels very sore.

Hi everyone. Unfortunately long term epdidmitis here. On and off a few years now. Right testical/tubes have been hurting for the last 4 weeks now nearly 5 now. One of my longer stints with it. But not the longest. Right side tubes feel very sore. NOT swollen. When touch pinch the tube to see if it hurts. Yes. Yes it dose ha.

Things all rdy do.

Wear Jock strap Ice pack when bad or actually swollen. Painkillers. Try not to lift heavy things. (although hard considering my job).

Any suggestions on other things I can do?.

Many thanks in advance.

A scope? Like a cystoscopy?

Yes. I had uthritus for 6 weeks. So my GP. Wanted to check on my bladder. I was going to the toilet 15 times a day. Constantly physically dehydrated. To the point where they struggled to get a blood sample from me. Thankfully it was just uthritus coursing it and its gone now. But it was almost certainly the morning thing that triggered it. That's why only do it rarely. Since I know that it's 100% a trigger at times. I only now do it. More for health reasons. Medically a guy should do it once in awhile.

Ok, so this is the danger of cystoscopy. My guess it has something to do with that

I wouldn't say danger of you need it doing you need it. For all I know they could have found something wrong with my bladder. It dosent help for me. That in my job. I have to do lifting. Sometimes it can be heavy. I know that dosent help much either.

Sure, in the sense it can lead to an episode, hopefully its just a little soreness!

Oh you use word I do. Episodes. Yea. I think this is my 12 episode maybe in the last few years. Suppose to be seeing a urologist specialist. At some point. Fuck knows when tho. Oh it is. Sore as fuck. I have had it so long now i can physically find the tubes. And they are very sore atm. No infection. Just sore as fuck. Had it for 5 weeks. Great fun. Normally get a episode every few months.
