I have been diagnosed with Chronic Reflux Epdidymitis. The Doctor said it is caused from straining from weightlifting and gave me a two week dosage of Levaquin. I was told to take hot baths 2x a day for two weeks also.I will need an ultrasound during and after the treatment.
yeah, Iv been waiting to see what exactly is going on with this.Is it a cry for information? or just a detail of what is involved by someone whos going through it?
Let's agree to respect each others views, no matter how wrong yours may be.
Development from my other thread. Sorry I didn't include more details.
But this seems to be the root of all my problems I am told and I should hope it clears up and allows normal function to occur immediately after the treatment is complete.
After all those specialists said everything was fine, it's good that you finally got the problem diagnosed.I had to look up what 'chronic reflux epididymitis' meant. The 'chronic' part just means it's continuing; the 'reflux' means it's caused by urine going backwards up the vas deferens into the epididymis and irritating it. Heavy lifting can cause this to happen.
Yeah I guess urine is causing this problem, even if urination occurs before the lifting it is still in the bladder and gets in to areas which it should not which causes the infection.
Anyways hopefully it cures up this time. I am going crazy from cabin fever and no exercise!
