The surgeon looked at both testicles during surgery and treated accordingly. For infection, they would put u on 10d of antibiotic.

When you have surgery for torsion the other side is fixed so it may not develop torsion in the future and your discomfort probably is from that. When you have a question after surgery never hesitate to call your surgeon. Wear a support and follow your surgeon's advice. Good luck.
