I’m going to go see another doctor. A normal doctor this time, not a urologist. I’m pretty sure I have an inguinal hernia, which would explain the minor swelling I’ve been experiencing. After inhaling some rice yesterday and violently coughing for hours and continuously coughing all day today, I noticed a swollen lump that was a bit painful in my left pubic area just below my hip bone, it’s on my right side too, but not as much. My penis also seems a bit shorter while it’s erect, but it’s actually because of how swollen my pubic area is. The urologist checked me for a hernia, but i read the symptoms can come and go, and I wasn’t swollen that day when he half assidly checked me. I read that surgeries for inguinal hernias can cause permanent ED, and I’m already in a fragile state in that area from my injury, so I really hope it’s not a hernia, really hoping it’s swollen lymph nodes or something. I need to cough to get this rice out of my lungs or I could get pneumonia or something worse, but I I don’t want to or I might make the hernia or hernias even worse. The universe is just relentlessly trying to fuck me over XD. I think the hernia was caused from when I was doing a bunch of reverse kegels to combat hard flaccid back when I first injured myself.
