I have orchitis; how long do I have to wait until I can resume working out? Can I do light weight light intensity exercise since the pain has lowed?

In brief: Here are some ...

As long as you can tolerate the pain & ache, there has been no rigid rule to govern when and how to exercise.
But, that if you really have orchitis or STD-related epididymitis - epididymoorchitis or intermittent torsion remains a sticky issue to watch and solve correctly. So, contact urologist to address such pertinent concern timely.
