  • Clean bill of health!

    Hi Everyone,

    I wanted to say thanks for the support over the weekend when it felt like an eternity having to wait for my ultrasound over the long weekend.

    The technician said I have nothing to worry about. I just wanted to let everyone know what it was that I felt (in case other people feel something similar and I can save them the stress).

    There were actually two things:

    The first being the head of the eipdidymis. I thought it might be that but could not follow it down to the tail so I also thought it could be something else.

    The other things I felt were calcium deposits. The technician told me they are very common. They were the size of small pebbles. She did say that they float around in the sac (not attached to the testicles) and can sometimes push together and feel larger than they actually are.

    Good luck to everyone and thanks again!
