Procedure Was A Breeze, Recovery Not So MuchI am now 7 days post-op and surfing the net looking for an explanation as to why I am now a week later feeling more pain. I was really only able to take 1 night off after I had mine done on a Thursday afternoon. I had to take care of my two small children the next day and a very pregnant/ill wife.
I was happy leaving the docs office as the procedure wasn't painful at all, felt like the doc was messing with a wet warm wash cloth on my crotch. I felt a slight sting with the first numbing as I expected, then just a slight ache when he injected my right side.
My incision was very small and clean, has healed nicely. I had some initial very minimal swelling and bruising in two spots. Doc said he didn't have to root around at all apparently my stuff was all right there where he could get it.
I know I did not take it as easy as I should have and now I think I'm paying for it. Had first "test fire" today as it was day 7 and everything worked, but now I have swelling and discomfort. No we didn't go crazy and abuse my junk. Not sure if it was the testing or just over-working myself and not taking it as easy as doc suggested. I would have sat on my butt if I could have, but that wasn't in the cards.
I have propped my boys up with a rolled up sock and that provides some relief, tight briefs alone provided no help. Feels like my right testicle is being pulled down and very sensitive to touch, like a slight touch feels like i've been hit in that ball.
I've seen all the horror stories which did little but make me think I'm doomed to a life of pain and possible ball removal.
Are there any GOOD stories that can help reassure me that I'm not going to die?
