Brief Answer: Infected hydrocele Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query It looks like you are suffering from an infected hydrocele, the pain in the groin is unrelated to your heart catherterization. Here is what I suggest to you 1. Please approach a general surgeon for clinical examination. 2. You will need to be put on antibiotics, a combination antibiotic like Amox with clavulanic acid is ideal 3. For the pain please take plain paracetamol two to three times daily. 4. You could also support and elevate the groin area with a soft pad, it will give some pain relief. I hope I was of help, if you have any further query please get back to me I wish you good health and a speedy recovery Regards

Hello, I'm an 80 year old man but this has been going on as long as I can remember. Sometimes, but not always, when I'm standing at the toilet waiting to urinate, as soon as the urine starts to flow, or a split second before, I feel a rush of warmth in my toes, both feet. I've looked for this on the web and a few people report it but apparently most men don't have this experience and don't know about it. I had surgery for hernia / hydrocele / undescended testicle when I was about 14 in case that has anything to do with it.
