A member asked:

I have bell clapper deformity in my right testicle and have experienced intermittent testicular torsion for years. my urologist proposed that i wait until i no longer want children for an orchiopexy, as it may cause infertility. is that a valid risk?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Testicular pain ?'s: Any operation on your testicle can cause compromise in sperm production in that testicle, but if the remaining testicle is functioning normally, the sperm count will remain in the fertile range. If the intermittent pain continues, an orchiopexy done in a non-emergent time will avoid a surgical emergency from torsion. Get a second opinion from another urologist.
