So, my Dh who is 34 years old had been complaining of bad abdominal pain that radiate s to his groin. He called his pcp but they didn't have Any appointments today, but now I am more concerned because now his testicles are swollen. I am trying to get him to call the Drs back with the new issue. ( our Dr has 24 hour nurse line) , but he wont call.



@@@@@ UPDATE, he has.a.doctors appointment in 2 hours. I will be sure to update when it is done. @@@@@@


**** update 2- So, he went to the Drs and it turns out he has an infection in his prostate (prostatitus) I am probably spelling it wrong. So they gave him 2 weeks of antibitotic and said if that doesn't fix it to come back. Thanks for all the support, glad I got him there*****

I had an issue with dh a few months ago where he was complaining of a headache. Soon it became a shooting pain, and went from a pain every few hours, to every few minutes. I was freaking out, I finally told him he needs to go to urgent care, but when I told his aunts (who are nurses) that it was getting worse by the hour, they  decided to take him to the ER. I told his family because I was hoping if it came from someone other than me, he would go. He's so stubborn

See if you can call and talk to them in regards to him.  Threaten an ER visit where he could end up having strangers feel up his private area?

My husband had a lump in his festival three years ago. Took me two days to convince him to got to the doctor. Ever since then he will go if something is wrong.

DH goes to the doctor if he coughs. Yesterday he sneezed and called the nurse line to see if he should go to the ER.

I smacked him for that. :)

My dh, luckily, will go to the dr. if he needs to.  I am glad about that.  If he didn't he'd drive me up the wall!  Hope your dh is ok, OP!
