Hello. I'm Dr ChipAre you taking antibiotics for this?
Which ones and what dosage?
And how was the diagnosis of epididymitis made?
Did you have an ultrasound of the scrotum?
What were the symptoms that first got you to the doctor?
Sounds like a prostate infection rather than epididymitis
Still nothing too serious but I treat those with a month of Levofloxacin so you should ask your doctors to extend that prescription
Please let me know if you need any more information
No--torsion would be extremely painful and would last for hours
No I'm sure this isn't even temporary torsion
I understand your concern but it's not that
I understand your concern but it's simply not torsion
And torsion doesn't occur with both testicles at the same time
I understand and that's exactly how a prostate infection acts
Even partial torsion wouldn't hit both testicles
Were either of your testicles actually tender?
Then it still could be epididymitis but that rarely hits both testicles
That sounds like epididymitis
I'll be more than happy to continue here if you need but for now please rate me service to you so I can get credit for the time I've spent
No it's not
It's not torsion and you need to stop doing your own research
And it would be rare to have epididymitis affecting both testicles
Well epididymitis isn't really a UTI
I'm just saying I wouldn't call it a UTI
Epididymitis but it isn't something like a bladder infection which is what I would term a UTI
It's a bacterial infection, sometimes but not always from sex
What more can I say?
