Blown Testicle - Any Dr's here
To be blunt...I gave myself a hernia a while ago with a wicked sneeze. It was such a violent sneeze that my right testicle physically jumped into body and I had to push it out myself. It now sits reversed versus my left one, the cords attached to testicle seem enlarged, it's not as sensitive as the left one, and it's aches like arthritis at times.
Anyway I have an appointment with an urologist tomorrow (9 month waiting list) and I’m quite sure I’m going to have surgery. There goes my planned cycle. Does anyone know the recuperation time on a testicular surgery? What procedure is common for fixing this?
I read this on a self exam site a while ago…pretty much sums up what’s wrong with my nut….although I know it’s not cancer.
“The testes usually sits in the front part of the scrotum. Above and behind the testis, sits the epididymis. This structure is important in transporting sperm, making sperm more motile and more mature. The tubes of the epididymis thicken, run down and behind the back of the testicle and loop back up and out of the scrotum as the vas deferens. These are the normal structures in the scrotum. Occasionally, however, the testis may be backward and therefore the epididymis would be located on the front of the testicle. (MBH comment - like mine is).
There are some structures that may be found in the scrotum that are abnormal, but are not cancer. These structures are usually near the testicle, but nor part of the testicle and include varicoceles (varicose veins around the testis) and cysts containing fluid and/or sperm, etc. Varicoceles are sometimes important if found in an adolescent or young man because they can sometimes affect the ability of the testicle to produce good quality sperm. Cysts are not usually cancerous and generally do not affect fertility. Fluid can sometimes build up around the testicle. This fluid accumulation is called a hydrocele and can prevent you from feeling your testicle. (MBH comment - mine is kind of numb). If you cannot feel your testicle, or have any concerns, you should contact your physician.”

Damn Bro .. that's some bad luck. Hope it gets taken care of quickly and properly. I don't know the answer to your questions, never dealt with anything like that. Just wanted to wish you a little luck in getting it fixed up.

Best of luck to you and I wish you a speedy recovery. Your one of the better guys on the board and your posts have always helped me out.

They should be able to just flip that little sucker around into the right spot. A guy at my work had a similar problem and he was down for about 3 weeks. After that he was back to his normal self. Not sure if he had the same problem as you but as long as they don't remove the testical I don't think you'll be down long. Good luck.
