Hey, hope this helps somebody someday. Here's the story: I developed a painful swelling over my left testicle after an athletic competition, which caused pain and atrophy of my left testicle. The IDIOTS at the hospital (multiple doctors) assumed I had an inguinal hernia, and scheduled surgery...when in fact it was a damaged/blown VEIN called a VARICOCELE where the vein swells at the top of the scrotum. The doctors assumed this swelling was due to the INTESTINE prolapsing into the inguinal canal. So, I had hernia surgery for NO ******n REASON. I have not been well since. To all doctors: GET IT RIGHT! If you are attending med school to please your parents and drive a status symbol... if you drink in the admiration of society then SCREW your patients with your ineptitude!
Instead of diagnosing and healing the buttocks, stick to PENETRATING them, ya squids! STAY THE ***l OUT OF THE PROFESSION!
