            Orchiectomy - It isn't that bad

            I just had a right side orchiectomy done two days ago after diagnosis of a malignant seminomal cancer.

            I don't want to write too much about it here but it is really quite bearable. Your nuts certainly don't hurt - which is what one expects.

            I've written a full report of the post-procedural situation here:

            Orchiectomy is the polite medical definition for surgically removing someone's (single) testicle which is what happened to me yesterday as a...

            I will be following up with either radiation and/or chemo treatment in a couple of weeks and will keep you posted.

            I was diagnosed with the cancer just two weeks ago after going to a second doctor - my first visit to my general practitioner back in March was a flop - he blew me off when I said I had discomfort in the testicular region.

            don't take no for an answer
            demand a visit to the urologist
            change doctors if you have too.

            Good luck all.

            best regards
