    Those who have had an Orchiectomy(sp?) did you notice a decrease in ejaculatory load?

    Also I just read "About one in 25 men who have had testicular cancer may develop cancer in the other testis" I heard it was 1 in 50.

    I've seen a range of "from 1 to 5%" chance of developing a second cancer in the other testicle. I wouldn't worry too much about the exact statistic. The main point is that it's unusual, but the risk is significantly higher than for the general population.

      Don't worry if the other one is working you will have plenty of sperm to get the job done. As for amount I would say about the same give or take.. I think a lot of things can decrease output besides cancer once you get healed up things should start working like normal and be about the same.
