Pain reoccurance afer varicocelectomy

Hello, I'm a 28 yo male, healthy, and non-smoker. I had a varicose vein in the left side of my scrotom corrected via surgery in Jan 2010. A few months passed by and all was fine. I haven't lifted anything heavy to aggrevate the issue either. It bothered me off an on for a little while and took 2 Motrin for the pain since it was mild. I saw the same urologist today that did the surgery and mentioned it to him and he went through the normal routine but he couldn't tell exactly what was wrong. He told me to take Aleve twice a day for two weeks and wear more conforming underwear for support around the area since boxers don't provide it (a great short-term fix for the problem). Then, after 2 weeks, if it's still bothering me, he wants me to get an ultrasound done to find out if that'll pick anything up.

Does anyone else have this issue?
What are my options?

It sounds like you already have care from a urologist. Follow his instructions. The anti-inflammatory he recommended is probably enough for the moment, but call your doctor promptly if it doesn't help or things change.
