Always ask surgeon: It's a surgeons responsibility to describe the any procedure or operation beforehand also all benefits ; risks. Wonder why ur having this surgery at age 49, this is unusual. Too late to affect fertility ; varicoceles usually don't cause much discomfort. Surgery can be done via laparoscope (my preference), open microsurgery at neck of scrotum or open abdominally through a hernia type incision. ...Read more
What is the rush?: Am surprised UR in the mood so soon after surgery. Masturbation shouldn't be a problem 3 days after laparoscopic spermatic vein ligation (minimally invasive surgery for varicocele). Might be a bit traumatic if surgery was via scrotum or or at neck of scrotum. U probably wouldn't feel like it if U had surgery via open trans-abdominal surgery ...Read more

I have varicocele in my both testicals, is surgery necessary, becouse I am afraid that it couse infertility, and is it ok to treat it later, I'm 17?
Scrotums: Surgery for this problem is a last resort and not a common first line of treatment. Usually waiting and observing is appropriate given that these fluid filled cysts will shrink with time. If the cysts do not dissipate then something more worrisome may be going on and I would then refer you to a urologist for further evaluation. ...Read more

None. ..: If the indication for varicocele correction is established, its treatment of choice is either microscopic varicocelectomy by urologist or spermatic vein embolization by dedicated interventional radiologist. There has been no non-surgical mean to correct it as what I have known through my 45-yr study and practice in urology. ...Read more
Yes and no: A varicocele cannot be corrected without some sort of procedure. It can be done via interventional radiology by embolizing the varicocele angiographically. More commonly, it is ligated surgically via one of a number of techniques (laparoscopic, robotic, inguinal, subinguinal). The various benefits of each approach should be discussed with your physician. ...Read more
No: Not all varicoceles need to be treated. Reasons to fix a varicocele would be symptoms (pain), infertility (common finding with infertile men), and adolescents with testicle atrophy. Treatment options include open surgical repair including microsurgical approach, laparoscopic varicocelectomy or percutaneous embolization typically performed by a radiologist. ...Read more
