I had a varicocelectomy about a week ago. Do the veins eventually go away or do they remain in the scrotum? I had a subinguinal incision.

I had a varicocelectomy about a week ago. Do the veins eventually go away or do they remain in the scrotum? I had a subinguinal incision.

Here are someā€¦: All forms of varicocelectomy are not to remove all varicocele about the testes, but just procedurally interrupt venous returning circulation from testes to heart, thereby to reduce and even eliminate undue effects from long-term venous blood potentially leading to chronic ischemia and subsequent undesirable tissue change. So, the concerned varicose veins before surgery will still exist but with.. ...Read more

After varicocelectomy, testicle swelled for about 2 weeks and 3 months later is half or less of original size with recurring pain. Is removal needed?

After varicocelectomy, testicle swelled for about 2 weeks and 3 months later is half or less of original size with recurring pain. Is removal needed?

Probably not.: Removal...Thinking about it gives me shudders! The damaged testicle may take time to heal, and it also may not regain normal size. But it is proably producing some testosterone. Get your free and toal t checked, together with an fsh and lh. An ultrasound can also help unravel the problem! Discuss these with your treating surgeon. It is part of follow-up care! ...Read more

Can masturbation after 5 days of varicocelectomy cause varicocele reccurence?

Varicocele recur: Unlikely that you could cause the recurrence in 5 days since a varicocelectomy is usually performed by tying off veins that lead to the testicle. You could just have swelling from the surgery or bruising due to reopening of small veins where the surgery was performed. After any scrotal surgery, 1 week of scrotal support, ice pack, and Ibuprofen will help heal things. ...Read more

Had a bilateral laparoscopic varicocelectomy in June 2014. The front of my thighs have been dead to touch ever since. When will the feeling come back?

Here are some...: Clinically, a severe injury - possibly complete transected - to femoral branch of genitofemoral nerve occurred during laparoscopic varicocelectomy.

Subsequent to varicocelectomy, testicle has grown huge?

May be hydrocele. ..: How long ago did you undergo varicocelectomy, and how was it done? These may potentially affect the current size of scrotum.

The common reason for "huge" testicle is hydrocele, which is fluid filling up the space between scrotal wall & testis. So, ask Doc. ...Read more

Hi! I had a varicocelectomy performed on me back in November. Ever since then, I've felt my penis stiffer and more curved than before, and some discom?

Hi! I had a varicocelectomy performed on me back in November. Ever since then, I've felt my penis stiffer and more curved than before, and some discom?

Probably no worries: Surgical removal of a varicocele cannot have any such effect on the penis. Probably you're just observing more closely and more attuned to your genital anatomy because of anxiety, the discomfort, etc. If the "discomfort" is actual pain or any redness or swelling, get it checked out ASAP. Either way, return to the doctor who did the surgery. S/He probably will reassure you about your penis. ...Read more
