In brief: If..., then...

If done for pain, i will check patient in 6 months after the first postop visit in 5-10 days, so to check if his vricocele-related improves or disappears or not, in correlating the shrink of varicocele.
If for male infertility, after immediate postop visit(s), i will repeat semen analysis in 3-4 months so to see and compare it with that before procedure, and of course, to examine if the varicocele.
