What does surgery for testicular torsion feel like?

What does surgery for testicular torsion feel like?

What are the effects of surgery for testicular torsion?

What are the effects of surgery for testicular torsion?

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. ...Read more

However, torsions don't happen in a vacuum - "bell-clapper" deformities & other fixable problems lead to recurrent, permanent torsion. See a Urologist to evaluate. Even deformities that predispose you to torsion should be fixed ...Read more
