I had torsion of testis surgery 4 weeks ago, I askin so much because I am so scared. And I really want to mastrubate but I can't because I am scared.

OK with caution: Surgery for torsion of the testis involves suture pexy of the testicle to the scrotum. In other words the free testicle that could twist is now fixed with suture to the wall of the scrotum. After 4 weeks, this bond should be approximately 70% as strong as normal tissues. Gentle masturbation is ok with a lot of lubrication. Take it slow. Listen to your body, if you have pain, stop. Nothing wild! ...Read more

About?: There is no crystal-ball advice on how long the postoperative recovery should be. The ongoing postoperative advice usually serves more for medico-legal demand and social/political correctness with no solidly proved value. Generally speaking, let the surgical site settle down usually within one week, then you can move along with common sense as long as being tolerable and of no undue swelling. ...Read more

Twisting of cord.: Testicular torsion is caused by twisting of the spermatic cord, which interrupts the blood supply to the testis.

A larger testicle is also a risk factor. ...Read more

What are causes of testicular torsion?

Bell-clapper testis: Some men have a testis that hangs loosely within the tunica vaginalis which is membrane around testis. Torsion can occur if the membrane is attached unusually high on the spermatic cord, often with a testicle which lies transversely rather than vertically. Testicle thus hangs like the clapper of a bell. Additionally, contraction of the cremaster muscle can then cause testicle to twist on it's cord. ...Read more
