Varicoceles occur when the blood vessels in the testicles swell, causing lumps in the testicles that often feel painful. The reason is because of disruption in the function of valves in veins that fail to close completely, causing a lot of blood to accumulate in the testicles because they cannot return optimally to the heart. This condition needs proper treatment, one of which is surgery, so that it does not interfere with the sperm production process which can lead to infertility.
There are 2 types of surgeries that can be performed to treat varicoceles, namely open surgery (laparotomy) or minimal surgery using the aid of a camera-tipped interval (laparoscopy). Depending on which type of surgery you went through before, post-surgery, recovery time can vary, some are fast (less than 2 weeks), some are slow (more than 2 weeks). Frequently, varicocele surgery performed by laparotomy requires a longer time for the patient to get back to normal activities.
After 1 year, usually people who previously underwent varicocele surgery have fully recovered so that they can return to their normal activities. Pain that appears around the groin close to the scar, if the intensity is mild, may arise due to the formation of scar tissue in the surgical scar that is less elastic so it is less able to accommodate excessive movement. Such conditions are often not dangerous and do not require special handling.
However, if you feel pain that is quite severe, especially until accompanied by swelling in the former surgery or groin, nausea, vomiting, bowel disorders, and so on, we recommend that you consult yourself directly to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine for more observation continue ...
There is no specific prohibition for people who have had varicocele surgery for cycling. However, if the pain you feel is quite heavy, you should indeed limit this exercise and other sports that involve excessive contraction of abdominal muscles, such as sit ups, jogging, jumping rope, and so on. To reduce pain, try to compress the painful area with warm water, do not massage or over-massage. Do not forget, multiply rest, eat regularly, and avoid consuming drugs carelessly without a doctor's prescription.
Hope this helps ...
