But retractile testis may become "ascending" testis in some 25% of patients, which will require timely exploration and fixation (orchiopexy). So, ask Doc for... ...Read more

Suffer retractile testicles after inguinal hernia surgery. Will this go away or stay like this forever? It's been 2.5 months. Any tips to make it go?
