For the past 20 months, I have had chronic groin and back pain. At first my doctor recommended a urologist because of possible prostrate problems. None of the urologists said I had a problem. After trying about everything, I finally had a MRI, and it showed that I have a herniated disc on L5-S1. I am scheduled fr surgery in 10 days.
I am worried that the surgery won't resolve my issues. My pain includes erectile dysfunction. Viagra and Cialis sometimes help, but whenever I get aroused I get severe pain in groin and buttocks. Massage therapy helped with this issue, but I moved recently and it made the pain even worse. I am worried that my ED will continue post-surgery.
