Is testicle pain after hernis surgery common?

Yes it is... During the surgery, the testicular cord (of which the testicle is at the end of in the scrotum) is manipulated extensively. This can result in that uncomfortable feeling/pain of getting struck in the testicle. I recommend wearing an athletic supporter for a few weeks - it will help with that and provide some security while you heal and get over it. Be well!
Yes. But it is usually not severe, and once the postoperative pain and swelling goes down after 2-6 weeks, there shouldn't be any pain, but you may have occasional discomfort that shouldn't limit your activities. Check with your surgeon to find out more. Hope this helps!
Can be. Common to have temporary pain from nerve irritation to the testicle and upper thigh region. This usually resolves over some weeks. See your surgeon to be sure that you are healing properly.
Yes. An inguinal hernia protruds in the groin along with the blood supply to the testicle. In the process of repairing the hernia, there is some gentle manipulation of the spermatic cord that attaches to the testicle. The discomfort is to be expected and will resolve during the recovery from surgery.

Stay the course. Chronic orcalgia of unknown origin.You need a variety of consultations. A visit to a Urologist at a tertiary referral center would be indicated. Pain in the testicles can be referred from a variety of abdominal sources, and from the kidneys or stones the ureters. You should have a thorough physical exam and evaluation for a hydrocele, spermatocele,varicocele, and for kidney stones, including noncontrast helical CT scan to rule out occult urolithiasis (kidney stones), prostate exam and eval for prostate CA. Post hernia orchalgia and radiculopathy from pain of spinal origin should also be ruled out by a spine specialist.

Questionable treatment, unless indirect inguinal hernia shown first. Testicular &/or scrotal pain can notoriously be difficult to manage and often does not respond to epididymectomy. Certainly removal of testicle should not have been performed unless testicle was very tender. Various regimes utilized by pain clinics should have been tried first & certainly should be tried now including possible acupuncture. There is also possibility of referred pain. Surgery often does not help with this kind of pain unless it is due to intermittent trusts torsion in which case fixation of testis, to prevent twisting of spermatic cord, takes care of problem. Wish I could be of more help. Read more...

Here are some... Managing intractable testicular pain can be difficult and challenging as demonstrated in this man's clinical course - not infrequently seen. My take and approach to such has been straightforward by systemically analyzing the info on the specifics and relevance of symptoms stressing the detailed sequence of events + physical exam including careful neurological exam to check if there is sensory change along iliogenital nerve. If intractable neuralgia is verified, do diagnostic block; then, proceed with exploring the tender spot to excise the involved tissue for possible neuroma & do neurectomy of suspected responsible nerve. In my experience, this has worked well for difficult cases like this gentleman. Of course, it takes time, patience, skill, and ... to counsel the patient along the course of care. Read more...

Multiple Causes. Hi Mark, I am sorry to hear how you were treated. Scrotal or testicle pain can be caused by many things and can be hard to diagnose or get rid of. Whatever caused the pain in the first place, you have now had two operations which muddies the water. Even if you continue to have discomfort, this is unlikely to cause serious problems. I would look for a sympathetic Urologist or Primary Care doctor who is willing to listen to your complaint and discuss it with you. Read more...

More likely hernia. Common things commonly occur & hernias are very common. Femoral nerve pain would be confined to the leg & often associated with leg weakness. Ilioinguinal nerve travels thru inguinal canal (next to hernia , if present) & sends branches into scrotum & into upper & inner thigh. Thus hernia pressing on ilioinguinal nerve is most likely cause, followed by other causes of Ilioinguinal nerve pain. Read more...
