A 22-year-old male asked:

Can i masturbate after 3 days of a varicocele surgery on my left testicle?

What is the rush?: Am surprised UR in the mood so soon after surgery. Masturbation shouldn't be a problem 3 days after laparoscopic spermatic vein ligation (minimally invasive surgery for varicocele). Might be a bit traumatic if surgery was via scrotum or or at neck of scrotum. U probably wouldn't feel like it if U had surgery via open trans-abdominal surgery

Studies have shown that surgery for varicocele most often fails to relieve the pain because etiology of pain is undefined in varicocele.
