My fiancé has been going through the most frustrating chronic pain and we are unable to get a correct diagnosis. His urologist thought it was prostatitis after feeling his prostate and noting that was extremely large. Let me describe the pain the best I can...It is a dull pain/pressure in his left testicle, anus, and rectum accompanied by sensitivity in his lower back and abdomen. He had a surgery to remove his left epididymus which was found to have blood hematomas on it. We thought this solved the problem but the pain came back. We ended up getting a CT scan done on his pelvis area to check out the prostate. They said that it isn't showing any inflammation or infection but.... he was only born with one kidney (missing the left). This was a surprise to us but now we are thinking it may have something to do with his vas deferens. Please help. This is the most confusing condition. Any ideas welcome!
