PFS Patient (male)

Does this mean my side effects are permanent?

I’m having some bad reaction to the drug called finasteride. I took 0.25mg for 8 days. After quitting I started getting very mild pains in the scrotum which I didn’t pay much attention too. I read the side effects online and quit the drug. Since I quit I have been having terrible pain in my scrotum and the urgency to frequently pee. I went to an urologist here and he prescribed me Celebrex200 mg once daily and Taravid tablet twice. I have been having this meds 2 days but the pain doesn’t doesn’t stop. My penis while standing feels shrunk and stiff almost like rubbery. I haven’t been able to have an reception or ejaculate since 3 days. My testicular pain started after I masturbated. After that in a few hours I was sleeping and ejaculated in my sleep. Since then I feel terrible pain in my scrotum and penis. I have tried 1 or 2 finasteride pills in August leaving gaps. I was fine then so I initially I tried talking to the doctor here but I don’t think they have much idea. Do you know anyone in the urology department who can help me with this? Does this mean my side effects are permanent?
