A 36-year-old male asked:

Is testicular torsion surgery painful, and how long is recovery?

General anesthesia: Testicular torsion repair is emergency surgery. This surgery is done under general anesthesia & therefore should not be painful. After this surgery the patient should rest at home for several days. Strenuous activity should be avoided for 1 to 2 weeks. Normal activities can be slowly resumed. Sexual activity can generally be resumed after about 4 to 6 weeks. I wish you well with your health!

What are the effects of surgery for testicular torsion?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Simon Kimm

Several possible.: Surgery for testicular torsion exposes the testicle, de-torses the spermatic cord, and fixes both testicles in place (orchipexy). The incision is similar to a hernia surgery. If the torsed testis is not viable, it is removed. Testicular salvage rates are between 41-70%, depending on age and time to surgery. Orchipexy fixes the testicles in place to prevent future episodes.
