hey greens, thanks for the reply, I don't think that your issue has to do anything with kidney removal..
some more details about my condition:
I also get a pulling sensation occasionally. The sensation is more like 'burning' or 'pinching' in the loin region. However I am not observing any observable swelling in testicle or any other region.
I am totally confused as to why the pain should occur only in the loin region, if the varicocele occurs in the testicle region.
Also I got sonography and color doppler which has confirmed varicocele of about 4mm (the report says: 'there are multiple draining vessels with the largest of 4mm in lt. testicle)
one more interesting observation is that the pain becomes worse with stress..
maybe both of us have some sort of vein enlargement in the loin area which is pushing the nerve, hence the pain. I hope more people with varicocele history will respond whether they went thru something similar...
