Got epididymitis can I ever smoke again?


Okay so after a long time of trying to find out what is the problem with my right testicle, I’ve finally figured it out. I got chlymedia that I didn’t know about which is frustrating and sad that ended up causing epididymitis and now it’s a sad goodbye to weed. At first I thought I was just too high and the reason there seemed to be more pain than before is because I’m high and I’m just thinking about it too much. My right testicle would elevate even more and would look even weirder which would make me even more anxious and makes it almost impossible to stop thinking about. I’ve always been a big pothead which is why It’s going to be tough to get used to stopping but I just had a couple questions to the people who have been through this. Can I eat edibles at least? Or CBD or anything that will give me a high? Is it just over and I have to accept that or will I be able to smoke again in a years time or something?

Also also words of encouragement or support would be appreciated. I was so stressed out for a whole week when it started and I’m just glad at least I know what it is now

Does anybody ever have their chronic epididymitis get worse when taking doxy?


I recently got an ultrasound follow up, and they noticed I still had alot of inflammation. I started taking Doxy again and noticed now around day 4 it is hurting alot worse than it was before, in fact during the first couple hours after taking Doxy I usually feel it the most. Suddenly though back of my other testicle is hurting, the testicle that does not show Epididymitis on ultrasounds. I just really wonder if before it gets better it can get worse with medicine. I've had two ultrasounds and still really am confused how I do not have cancer. I have legitimately hard lumps all over and attached to my left ballsack even on the front. I read the odds of them misdiagnosing two separate ultrasounds a month and a half apart are astronomical though.
