Two hydrocelectomies within 4 months and may need a third. Although I have trust in my current urologist, should I seek out another practitioner?
I've had two hydrocelectomies in 4 months. Now, I have two hard lumps. The painful one is medial, at the bottom of my scrotum. The other one is less painful and near the inguinal canal. When the drain was removed one day post-op, I was told it was due to the cutting involved. Palpating both lumps. Feels like a garden hose was cut off. I'm 65 but sexual performance will be difficult. Very uncomfortable sitting for any length of time. Testicles feel like they are not hanging normally.

What would be a good urethra reconstruction fix?
I'm a 69-year-old who had urethra reconstruction surgery, just over 1 1/2 years ago. I've had two dilatations. I believe scare tissue maybe the problem, but I'm not a doctor. I was hoping a stent would be a possible solution. I live in Northwest Indiana near Chicago. My local doctors recommend reconstruction again, does not make sense unless something is done differently.

Male Infertility - 2 answers
I went to a general doctor for a physical so that she can get me a referral to a fertility clinic. After performing a test the doctor told me that my testosterone is low. She prescribed testosterone for me. I have read a lot that people who take testosterone become unable to reproduce because the brain stops producing gnrh that induces testosterone production. Should I take the testosterone treatment that the doctor said I need?
