Will variceole surgery raise my low end of normal testosterone numbers (250) and when would one see it working post surgery.?

Never: Acer, I do not believe that there is much literature on this subject. We know that varicocele are associated with pain, which improves after surgery.

The external sutures you get in the emergency room may have to be removed; it's easy and usually painless. Your doctor should tell you what type of after-care you will need. Good luck.
