A year ago, my son started to suffer from pain behind and lower than his kidneys/testicles. He was first seen by an urologist who did a procedure to confirm that in fact nothing was wrong with his kidneys, bladder, stones, etc. He was referred to another doctor who proceded to remove the left epididymis of his testicle - because it was inflammed and needed to be removed! He continued in pain, left his job in Phila. Pa. and returned home to live with us. He has been seen by a long list of doctors/tests and specialists and no one has reached any conclusion. He continues daily to have profound pain in the back of both legs, and on his worse days, extends down into his calves. He no longer works or drives but spends his days in bed. He has been prescribed a litany of narcotics, anti-depressants and muscle relaxants to no avail. He has been to pain management and physical therapy. He has lost a year of his life! We are desperate. If any one has any suggestions or specialists to direct him to, we would be forever grateful.
