Can Have Sex A Week After Testicular Torsion Surgery?
I just had surgery a week ago because of testicular torsion, so can I have sex after a week of surgery? or are you still waiting for it to recover? Thank you
Hello. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Testicular torsion (TT) is a twisted condition of the spermatic funiculus which results in disruption of blood flow to the testes. The testes themselves hang on the spermatic funiculus and are encased in the scrotum. This condition is mostly experienced by male adolescents in the age range of 12-20 years. Complaints / symptoms that can usually be experienced by sufferers of testicular torsion are:
Sudden (severe) pain in the testicles Nausea / vomiting Swollen scrotum May be accompanied by headaches and low-grade fever The position of the testicles is higher than usual. Surgery is the main option to save the testicles. Because testicular torsion is an emergency condition, treatment must be done as soon as possible within 6-8 hours from the first symptoms appear which is the golden period. Delay in handling testicular torsion can result in permanent damage to the testes which leads to impaired fertility. Tips that you can do after surgery:
Get plenty of rest to speed up the healing process Consume foods with balanced nutrition Take medication as recommended by the doctor Avoid strenuous activities for 1-2 weeks Be diligent in caring for / cleaning surgical scars To reduce discomfort in the scrotum due to swelling, sometimes a loincloth is needed as a means of supporting / protecting the scrotum Follow-up to the doctor who treats you so that you can evaluate the results of your therapy. Whether or not to have sexual activity one week after testicular torsion surgery, it depends on your condition, so you should discuss it directly with the surgeon who treats you. May be useful.
