  • 10 months post I/O strange nerve effects

    I am 66 and had a right I/O ten months ago. I am different that everyone here in that I don't have cancer but my right testicle was damaged and the urologist recommended an I/O. I have had a numb spot under the incision down to my scrotum as well as discomfort when anything touches the area. Most odd is that in the last month just before I ejaculate it feels like someone poured hot water on my right side, inside me. I get this flood of feeling and then after I ejaculate it goes away. Has anyone had this? I think that my nerve difficulties are extended because I am older than most people on this site. I am no stranger to cancer since my wife died from it and I am thankful that I only have to deal with this discomfort.

    To have a problem show up 9 months after an I/O is extremely rare. I can't even conjure up a guess. You've only got a few years on me, so age is probably not the main issue.

      I have this sensation too. It's in my groin, it doesn't happen all the time. When I talked about it to my Uro, he told me it was the nerves...

      But it looks like hot sperm is flowing in your veins.... It's a strange feeling.

      Like you it didn't come right after IO, but I can't remember exactly when.

      Someone on the forum talked about it too, but I can't find the message....

          Your doctor is likely right that it's a nerve issue. An I/O can cause damage to the ilioinguinal nerve. Numbness and the area where it's happening is a giveaway sign that it's that. The burning feeling may be a good sign as it can indicate that your nerves are regenerating. Nerves do regenerate more slowly the more advanced in age you are, so improvement is likely -- it just may take a lot longer than younger folks (like me) who have the same issue.

            Thanks for your great responses. It really helps to know that I am not alone.

              Nerve pain in the groin plain sucks. But the PUR clinic is probably the best option you have at getting relief. Like i said in private message. The prodecure is painful as hell. He chemically burns tissue in that area and then your body repairs the damage. With mine they used a rh growth factor to help restore as much as he could. Fancy term for biologic agent to help your body regrow tissue..etc.
              I was black and blue for about a month after wards and tjey surrounding area too. So if you have it done be prepared to say wth have i done my self. But it will all return to normal.
              Im seeing the pur clinic again in july so they can do the procedure 1 more time to get rid of the pin point pain now that the radiual pain has been tsken care of
