Dear Newbie2:
I think this case is well taking and I'm sorry with the fault of success obtained.
I don't know what are thinking the member of the forum who participated, but with all the information you gave, I'm not sure to select the remedy.
If you boyfriend wants to collaborate, I'll post a questionary, and when he answer, I'll try to prepare a treatment.

Thankyou so much for replying Andres, sorry I took so long to reply I've been really busy.

I'm not sure what you meant by 'well taking' but if it is impossible to get the remedy from the information given then you could post the questionary and I'll ask my boyfriend to fill it in.

I just wonder though, Nux Vom seemed to fit quite well and he does seem better in his mood but the varicocele hasn't improved at all. Should we continue it or have we been using it for long enough that there should have been an improvement by now?

Also, what about Chelidonium? I have read this is very effective on varicocele...

Dear Newbie2:
If Nux Vom. didn't act, please don't take more.
The remedy selection need adecuated symptoms, please, don't take Chelidonium now. Wait for the treatment. If Chelidonium is indicated, you'll be able to give to your boyfriend with great security; if it is not indicated, we can suppress some important symptoms.
I wanted to say: The forum collabotors made a good selection of symptoms and a good selection of remedy; but with these symptoms, if the remedy didn't act well, that shows we need more symptoms to find the right remedy.
On monday I post the questionnaire for your boyfriend.
