Nursing Care Of Epididymitis

By superwendy-0308 at 2020-08-19 • 0 collector • 325 pageviews

Epididymitis is inflammation of the epididymis. The epididymis is a long curled tube inside your scrotum. It stores and carries sperm from your testicles to your penis. Acute epididymitis lasts for 6 weeks or less and becomes chronic if it lasts longer than 3 months. 

Most cases of epididymitis are caused by an infection, usually by the bacteria Mycoplasma or Chlamydia. These infections often come by way of sexually transmitted diseases. 

Epididymitis often has symptoms such as scrotal/groin pain and swelling, pus and bacteria in the urine, and fever and chills. 

For acute epididymitis, the following measures may help you:

  •  It is usually necessary to rest in bed immediately, do not stand or walk everywhere. You can put a pillow or rolled up towel under your scrotum. This helps support your scrotum and decrease pain.

  • Patients should be encouraged to eat less red meat (such as pork, beef, mutton, etc.) with high cholesterol, and more white meat (such as chicken and fish) with low cholesterol.

  • It is necessary to control the individuals' dietary structure and eat more vegetables that can help clear away heat. Prohibit drinking or smoking, avoid spicy and stimulating food is also suggested.

  • Ice helps decrease swelling and pain. Ice may also help prevent tissue damage. You can put an ice pack on your swollen testicle or scrotum.

You may need surgery if your condition worsens or becomes chronic. Surgery to remove your epididymis or testicle may be done. While on the other hand, surgery may cause bleeding or lead to an infection. After the operation, proper nursing measures can make the wound heal as soon as possible, so that the patients can recover as soon as possible. Postoperative cooperation with Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill with the effects of promoting blood circulation, promoting qi, relieving pain, clearing heat and detoxification, promoting diuresis and relieving stranguria can not only consolidate the therapeutic effect but also help patients improve the reproductive system environment and immunity, so as to get a thorough cure.
