--Hi, all. In March, I am going to see my Urologist to see about getting the above procedure done. I've taken virtually all the pain/nerve medications to stop this pain I've had in my testicles for over two years now. No pain med seems to really help. I have also had a cord block done with gave me relief, but for only two weeks or so. So now, I hope this "Cord Stripping" will help. For all of you guys that have had this procedure done, what is your experience with it?
--Finally, I am having trouble finding much info. about cord stripping on the internet. I would like to read about all the steps involved, even pictures, recovery time, and maybe even an F.A.Q. as well. Please tell me ANYTHING I might need/want to know.
