      Welcome, Mike!

      Since it has only been three days since your surgery, it's no wonder there's still swelling. Give it time. Even after the swelling subsides, you'll feel a healing ridge and numbness near the incision, where nerves were severed, for several months or longer.

      right inguinal orchiectomy 6/5/2003 > nonseminoma, stage I > surveillance > L-RPLND 6/24/2005 for recurrence, suspected teratoma but found seminoma, stage II > chylous ascites until 9/2005 > surveillance and "all clear" since
