I had sex after varicocele surgery 10 days ago and my testicle is in pain when it is touched, Is this because of sex?
Here are some ...: I assumed, indeed, this question is pertinent to a man. But, some pain 10 days after surgery can be still expected but it's fine to wait and see as long as slowly but surely getting better day by day. As to if sex-related, only personal experience can tell, but if suspected, stop more sex and see. If still in doubt, see treating Doc timely. ...Read more
Post op sex: Yes, unless your surgeon told you otherwise. I would let pain be the limiting factor here. ...Read more
After having varicocele surgery my dick doesn't fully errect and a string like painful vessel showed up on shaft with a lump at the end why is this?
Here are some ...: How long ago did you have varicocele surgery and how soon did such lesion appear? Clinically, the described lesion most likely represents thrombosed phlebitis (vasculitis of vein) or sclerosing lymphangitis. Both are self-limiting with no need for active RX; so leave it alone with/without warm pack. As to poor erection, I would watch for not trying sex without a full rest for full recovery. ...Read more
I should expect difficulty in urination during bowel movement after left varicocele surgery?Problem is in urine system or digestive system?
Neither : when varicocele surgery is done it makes that whole groin area very sensitive. Also, pain medicine and pain can make straining harder. So, for BM take something to help you go, so you don't have to strain. For urination- it should get easier as pain gets better. If still can't urinate then talk to your doctor who may give medicine, sometimes catheter to help ...Read more
My wet dreams gradually reduced and now completely vanished after six years of varicocele surgery. Reason?
Most likely this: is related to the other urinary conditions that you suffer from rather than the varicoele surgery itself. Libido & testosterone decrease with age, but you're still quite young. I encourage you to bring this up with your doctor and continue to receive treatment for the conditions you mentioned in your question. ...Read more
I did a varicocele surgery after that i think i have a thrombosed lymphatic vessel the doctor gave me hirudoid cream does the surgery cause this?
Here are some ...: How long ago did you have varicocele surgery & where/how was it performed? Where is the concerned thrombosed lymphangitis? Without these + physicals, it's hard to judge if both are related or not. As to Hirudoid topical effect to either inflamed vessel or lymphatics, the evidence of its benefit is still lacking, but people/doc use it for, maybe, political correctness as a vehicle of caring & sooth ...Read more
It's....: It's done via an inguinal incision, usually under microscope, to explore the spermatic cord so to identify, isolate, transect, and resect spermatic veins (2-5 variably), resulting in eliminating its dilation and pressure hoping to improve semen sperm quality for infertility and relieve its related pain. Detail? Ask doc. It's usually considered as a minor ambulatory surgery. ...Read more
Always ask surgeon: It's a surgeons responsibility to describe the any procedure or operation beforehand also all benefits ; risks. Wonder why ur having this surgery at age 49, this is unusual. Too late to affect fertility ; varicoceles usually don't cause much discomfort. Surgery can be done via laparoscope (my preference), open microsurgery at neck of scrotum or open abdominally through a hernia type incision. ...Read more
None ...: If the indication for varicocele correction is established, its treatment of choice is either microscopic varicocelectomy by urologist or spermatic vein embolization by dedicated interventional radiologist. There has been no non-surgical mean to correct it as what I have known through my 45-yr study and practice in urology. ...Read more
Yes and no: A varicocele cannot be corrected without some sort of procedure. It can be done via interventional radiology by embolizing the varicocele angiographically. More commonly, it is ligated surgically via one of a number of techniques (laparoscopic, robotic, inguinal, subinguinal). The various benefits of each approach should be discussed with your physician. ...Read more
No: Not all varicoceles need to be treated. Reasons to fix a varicocele would be symptoms (pain), infertility (common finding with infertile men), and adolescents with testicle atrophy. Treatment options include open surgical repair including microsurgical approach, laparoscopic varicocelectomy or percutaneous embolization typically performed by a radiologist. ...Read more
Varococeles surgery?: NoGet a more detailed answer ›
Varicocele: After spermatic vein ligation (varicocele surgery) it is common for the veins to remain enlarged for weeks until collateral venous drainage routes enlarge. If the scrotal approach (instead of inguinal) it is also possible that only some branches of the spermatic vein were ligated, leaving some still dilated. ...Read more
Manage varicose vein: Varicocele is most like a varicose vein, a dilated venous structure in the scrotal sac rather than in the leg. Compression is a management tool, but does not solve the problem. They are mostly benign, ie don't add risk to your health. If you have an associated inguinal hernia, then repair hernia and have varicocele resected at the same time. ...Read more
