Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I believe that the severe back pain related to your disc bulge at L4-5 and L5-S1 is related to your pain problems. The varicocele may be adding to the pain as well. I do believe that there are surgical procedures available to treat these problems. I hope you consult a qualified doctor who can make the appropriate referrals, i.e. nueurosurgery, psychiatry and general surgery. I hope you are already on treatment of pain and are being optimized for the same by your doctor with titrating the medications. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
