Ive recently been told I have a Varicocele - PubMed Health Varicocele vein. (ultrasound doppler flow test assured this)

Click the link to read more about it; basically it's a faulty vein in the scrotum -_- :hide:that allows backflow of blood causing a build up of pressure which causes an aching pain.
Fuckin awesome right? It's been posted about before, but no topics have had much activity in them.

So i've been a daily smoker for about the past 2 or 3 years because it seriously helps with my appetite, anxiety, overall mood, and insomnia.

About a month ago I invested in a Da Buddha Vaporizer (thinking healthy!!) which was fucking awesome until the day I started having unbelievable pain in my balls. :(:wave: still reading? thank u.

I went to the Dr. and told them about the correlation I made between smoking and the pain. I have learned that THC acts as a vasodilator (Widens or Opens Up your Veins and Blood vessels, like when your eyes get bloodshot) which is why it hurts so god damn bad when I medicate; The veins open up and its like a waterfall of pain headed towards my stuff.:(

As u may have guessed the doctor advised "well maybe you should stop smoking," and I have. But I have the worst appetite and every night I go to bed at 4 or 5 AM.

This all adds to the anxiety that I already have. I fucking hate Rx pills too. Dependence (ironic, I seem dependent on MJ), withdrawals, all that bad shit.. I never wanted to head down that path.

My question is Has anyone else had experience with this problem?
If not, I will figure somethin out I guess. I have a few doctors appts. in the future, but I imagine they will just tell me to stop smoking and prescribe 4 different bottles of shit to fix my problems.

It's just worth a shot askin around here, lots of knowledgeable people in this community.


thx 4 readin bout ma ballzies:hello:

After reading a Wikipedia article, it sounds like your best bet is to have a Varicocelectomy done. It's outpatient surgery and sounds like no big deal. (I hope you have insurance). Why just treat the pain with pills when you can fix the problem? Good luck.

I actually saw a doctor for the exact same thing my friend
And let me tell you I feel your pain . My doctor though when he saw me just prescribed some antibiotics and anti inflammatory medication and it cleared up in 2weeks gradually easing in pain
I get your aversion to prescriptions but it's no like there shoving opiates down your throat
If its between a little pill for a week or testicular trauma I would choose the pill.

actually i got tramadol. it's a synthetic opiate haha :P:D

I've been able to recently vape small amounts and still get pretty buzzed without much pain but I take 800 ibuprofen and a tramadol beforehand.
Did you ever have pain increase when u would smoke? it seems pretty natural to happen to everyone with this problem i guess

YES.

It sounds exactly like what i had, im sure that was the name of it aswel. Well, they actually took the vein out from me (i have a scar to the left of my dick in the pube zone)

It was my left ball, apparently i had something like this or a varicose vein, made my left ball swell and ache to shit.

After the Operation, i had a year basically no sports because the op fucked up my inside leg muscle, after a year of no real sports and some physio to build strength i was back to fighting fit.

That was 3 years ago.

Apparently 1: 5 men experiance this at some point in varying degrees and time.

I recommend looking into a fix, are there any options?

WOW! Hey whats up guys!

 

I actually joined this site just so I could reply to this thread! :) But glad that I found this site anyway.

 

Reason I'm posting is because I actually had the surgery myself.  I'm still healing from it, but I have the same inciscion spot that BUfinest mentioned.  Anyway, I was connecting the dots myself, because I'm thinking I should be feeling better but at times, still hurting.  I noticed that it seemed to amplify when I was smoking so I decided to google and it led me here. 

 

I guess with this post I'm asking if there were any updates?  Did you actually have the surgery HHeh?

Just wondering if I just need to quit?? :( lol

Some weeks ago i was feeling pain while smoking. This was the reason couse i went to a doctor and he detected that a have a varicocele in my left ball.... it was also comfirmed by a doppler ultrasound test.

I stoped to smoke when i noticed the relationship between the pain and the moment when i was smoking.... and now i feel better (y).
The doctor give me "ibuprofeno" and "ciproxacilina" but i havent take it yet.. i think i will be much better after that.
