Question: please help varicocele surgery

 markorn - Sun Feb 19, 2006 4:56 am

i had my varicocele keyhole surgery done on the 6th Feb. Nearly two weeks ago. The aching of the scrotum was still there for a few days and went but it has come back again for some reason and i'm really scared again. Is it ever going to go away? i have a mild pain on my left thigh aswell..I am really scared and i do not want to go through another surgery again.. if it doesnt go away will i have to take another surgery?.. Why has it come back if its meant to subside?.. it's not very painful but its still there.. please reply back asap.

thank you!

User avatar Hi markorn,
After a surgical procedure, for a small period of time, there is some discomfort. I, however, hope you contacted your physician and had a follow-up evaluation.
