Basic Details:
Age- 22
Height- 5,4''
Sex- Male

My color Doppler report results are as follows:
- Both testes are normal in size and echotexture.
- Both epididymis are normal in size and echotexture.
- No evidence of hydrocele on both sides.
-The vessels of the pampiniform plexus are prominent on the left side as compared to the right.
- Multiple lymphnodes are seen in bilateral inguinal regions.

My Doctor has prescribed me scrotal support and Alprax(0.25 mg) twice daily for 5-days. I don't understand why has he prescribed Alprax. I don't have any tension nor am I in any kind of tension because of the varicocele. My pain is also bearable now.
When I asked him if I can do any exercise and jogging, he said there would be no problem if I exercise with scrotal support. But in my personal experience I've found that basic exercises like push-ups aggravate my situation.
