What's the healing symptoms of testicular torsion surgery?

No pain: Torsion is treated by untwisting the twisted cord & fixing the testis so twisting cannot recur. The opposite side(that is not torsed)is also fixed because there is a higher chance it may happen there.

Are the vas deferens are cut and tied in a transurethral resection of the prostate (turp)?

Are the vas deferens are cut and tied in a transurethral resection of the prostate (turp)?
