Wow, thanks for the great replies, guys.
Anyway, about 10 minutes after my post this morning I went to the ER. Here’s the quick story:
I got there, the doc sort of realigned my testes (pulled them down and outward to increase blood flow), then they gave me some pills. I know that one of the pills was just an ibuprofen, and I don’t know what the other two were, most likely vicodin because I started to feel a little loopy about 30 mins later. Then they gave me an intramuscular shot, not sure what that was either.
Before they sent me to get a sonogram, the doc said that it was most likely either an infection or a torsion. He said that with an infection they could just prescribe me some antibiotics and send me home, but if it was a torsion I’d need surgery. Well I went to the sonogram (which was sweet because I had a cute 20-something female nurse rubbing warm goo all over my balls) and when I came back the doctor was waiting by my room and told me I was just going to need the anitbiotics.
Whew I feel like I just dodged a bullet.
I have some questions for those of you who are medically inclined: I got 10 500mg Vicodin, and 20 100mg Doxycycline Hyclate to take until the bottles run out. Will I be ok to take these with HOT-ROX and BCAAs? (I also take fish oil and ZMA but I assume nothing will be wrong with that)
Also, just on a side note, I don’t know how the hell people can use gear. Having to inject myself EOD or in some cases 3x/day…I dunno man. Intramuscular shots are maybe the most uncomfortable thing I’ve experienced (had to get it done twice in the last year).
Thanks for the help guys, I honestly truly appreciate it.
I am not aware of any reaction between antibiotics and HOT-ROX, but to be safe, I would recommend that for the week you are on them, I would avoid it.
Everything else is a non-issue.
