  • implant and life.

    I'm 6 days out of my oriectomy and have opted for the implant. Its larger and much more firm than my other testical. during the days (or nights) if i move a certain way and the prostesis moves over to the other side, it makes other other testical more uncomfortable/sensitive. Will this go away?

    An another note, how long should I wait before going back to the gym or resuming other physical types of activity, including sex?

    How long does it take for the hurt to go away after sitting for a prolonged period?

    Welcome, Davey. You should wait a couple of weeks before having sex, to avoid possible complications like a hernia. I'd check with your doctor about how long to wait before going back to the gym.
