Hey,
I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing foot pain after the orchiectomy. Its been a year and a half since mine and i still get it from time to time on the same side as the removed testicle.

If the pain you are talking about feels like stabbing sensations, ants crawling on your feet, pins and needles, and/or coldness, it is probably peripheral neuropothy. From my understanding, this is a side effect of the chemo. My feet had very little feeling if any after chemo and then the feelings I described started. Over ten years later, my feet are a lot better but still get cold easy. Hey, it's better than the alternative.

You know, I had pain that might be similar/ I had left foot pain on the left side...same as orchiectomy. It was a throbbing intermittent pain that could come on out of nowhere. Only thing that seemed to help was high dose NSAIDs. Haven't had the pain in a while...but was very weird for a while.
