      Today I was at a car workshop and on the other side of my car someone used the pressure blower (hope you guys who drive know what I mean it is shape like a metallic stick the blows out air that gives a loud shhhhhhh sound).

      Upon hearing that I quickly move away and thus was exposed to maybe 10 seconds.

      Will it worsen my T or cause further damage? Very worried it might worsen. Should have just cover my ears and regretted not doing so.

      I used to operate those things on a daily basis for extended periods of time. They are not that loud. You will be fine.

      I'm sure it will be ok. If you didn't notice any pain or reaction at the time then sure it's fine. How are you now?

      Hi I'm sure you will be fine. I use air lines all the time, it's part of my job being in the motor trade. But never fool around with air lines . There is 90 to 120 psi of pressure coming out of that air blower.

      so... I shouldn't be using it rectally? But it feels so good!

      Exactly. I went to a tire shop few days ago and the plugs were in the whole time. From the impact wrench to the tires popping when inflated....I was glad I had them in.

      Glad I am fine still. Surprisingly right after the workshop incident my T went to record low of almost not hearing it. Strange!
