Hey all,
I had a testicle removed three months ago and now the one that's left has been swelling up and hurting. I had still another CT Scan done with dye and also a Sonogram or Ultrasound test, they came back negative but it worries the heck out of me. Is this normal? Has it happenned to any of you? Thanks and be well!

Eric,

I had my left testicle removed in 2003. As I recal I had pain for about 6 months like you are describing with swelling as well. This scared me as well for many weeks. I went out and had a second opinion and the doctors assured me this was normal. They told me to make sure that I remember that your body is healing. It will continue to react for time as you get better. I have still had some pain and swelling off and on even now. The best advice I can offer is to trust your doctors, but if you don't feel just right with them you can always get a second opinon. Fell free to message me if you have any questions. I would be glad to chat with you.

Eric,

I had my surgery in March of 2009, and I still have random pains. Sometimes I feel like it's twisted (around what i do not know since i onyl have one) and other times its a sharp nerve type pain.

sometimes i swear my left nut hurts even though its not there too. I think that whole area is just traumatized by the surgery and pains should be pretty normal. I still get a check up every month though just to be sure.
