  • some paine in the remaining testical

    I am getting some pain in my remaining testical (intermitent.) The pain is similar to the "dull ach" just a little sharper, Is this normal 3 weeks after surgery?

    Very typical. You should mention it to your doctor, but I don't think you need to be worried.

        Happened to me too.
        Had it checked (i requested an ultrasound) and guess what: after the exam the pain went away! (what your mind can do is incredible...).
        i still have some aches sometimes, usually a couple of weeks before my semetral appointment with the my oncologist. Then, afterwards as i'm goign home, it fades away...

          I was looking for this thread, my ache has returned and alil worse, it feels like it has an icecube put to it, that cold achy feeling you can sometimes get in the bones of your legs if ur feet are cold at night.

          I would say it was elevated LH and FSH overworking the remaining testicle, but funnily enough, I never had an ache in mine until my ER checkup before my 1st ultrasound wich was before my I/O, my 2nd urologist pointed out a tiny cyst in the remaing testicle, so its either the cyst or because I been feeling it abit too often wich to be honest hasnt been more then twice a week.

            Some thoughts

            I have also experienced a dull ache in remaining one. I asked my oncologist about it after he examined it he stated that it is normal, and that the remaining one is doing the work of two, and also the frequent (almost every time I go to the bathroom) self exams of the remaining one makes it tender. I don't think you need to worry too much about it, but make sure to mention it to your DR

              my doc said the same thing. that "double organs" (like lungs, kidney...) when one "fails", the other works for two... nice team job!

                It tries to work harder but not as good as 2.
                I quickly looked it up for kidneys, found a pretty stupid page from cancerguide.org it sounds like its written by one of my doctors, the tone of text they use make it sound like its just as good as 2, but when you read it carefully you can see they have used words like "almost as good"
                then further down it says when you get CT scans you gotta make sure you drink lots of water beforehand, then it says when getting a CT to use half the amount of iodine, or a special type of iodine wich is easier on the kidneys but more expensive.

                  Does the pain ever go away?

                  Its been 7 weeks since the surgery and it hurts every day, I dont know why, I dont know if it is referered pain cause of asymetry(in studies in mice, if they cut the nerve of one arm, the nerve of the other arm would degenerate) or if its cause its growing.

                  I had an ultrasound and it showed nothing, I hope TRT will fix it otherwise I would think about getting it removed except when I got the U/S done the person had to call a doctor in cause she didnt know what she was looking at but I thought she had found something and I started thinking about getting them both removed, and I started getting worried, that would mean being completely dependant on TRT. Turns out she didnt know the epidimas tail from the epidimas head.

                    I got it checked out and they didnt find anything, so I am thinking its either germ cells neoplasia or its just too much LH making my testicle work too hard, hopefully once I start HRT it will go away.

                      I had terrible pain in my left testicle about three weeks after my right orch. On a Friday afternoon I called my oncologist, Dr. Vaughn at Penn, and he first thought maybe I should go to the ER for something called testicular torsion. On the phone he had me do a self exam and we ruled that out- He had me take Motrum all weekend, and STOP TOUCHING IT. I came in on Monday, on exam he found nothing, still hurt some though- so he ordered an ultrasound- and I'm clean.
                      The pain went away once I stopped fonlding it and got the US results.
                      My libito had not suffered through any of my tretments, except somewhat now that I'm on chemo.

                        We cannot stop touching that - we want to make sure that it's still there
                        Anyway - CT scan should show if something wrong. Right? It should cover this area.

                            Pain or discomfort? I still dont feel that my 'lone gunman' sits right, almost 6 months out now. Most of the time i dont notivce it, but sitting for long periods makes it more uncomfortable. I'm guessing this is somethign i just have to get used to - and i'm more aware of it now because of whats happened...

                            be interestred to hear other peoples thoughts. Any fleeting pain i have now i immediately feel ocncerned about - whereas before the cancer, I'd have ignored or forgotten quickly

                              Its pain and discomfort, its like a dull ache that runs up the spermatic cord and sometimes radiates down my leg.
