              • The Uneducated O.A.P

                Hi Steve, sitting on one is bad enough, 2 must be unbearable.but at least it goes away, as you say, people live with worst pain than that every day, and medication offers little help in some cases.

                      .... I once had viral orchitis (Google it) and thought I was dying ... thank goodness they realised it was not a torsion before they brought the knife down ....

                      • The Uneducated O.A.P

                        Wow, sounds painful down there, and ice packs part of the treatment! Cor blimey missus, and I thought orchitis was something you caught after listening to orchi's singing. Lol
