Depends on severity: Usually, we recommend simple non-steroidal anti-inflammatory therapies like Ibuprofen or Aleve (naproxen) to be taken on an as-needed basis. If the pain is constant, make an appointment with the urologist or physician who performed the procedure. They may order an ultrasound to evaluate the anatomy. Hope you feel better soon.

Not a lot of data: There's not a lot of data and depends on your exam. Make sure you've seen your urologist. I'd consider seeing a pain doctor about injections to block the nerve as surgery for testicular pain is about 50% successful.
