welcome to HCM
Mumps - viral infection can cause severe problem when it affects the testes. This is evident as your FSH value is on the higher side
Unfortunately there is not much we can do about the situation and bring the value down.
However you can consult a urologist and do some investigations like scrotal scan
Some might do a testicular biopsy and see what type of cells are seen in the testis. A small portion the tissue can be frozen in proper centers which can be used later if there is evidence of spermatogenesis

hope to have answered your query
