Incision Site Selection Procedure For Varicocele Surgery?
, for varicocele surgery, where exactly are the incisions / openings? I just had left and right operations, the incision was above the groin below the stomach / waist. Meanwhile, my friend was around her scrotum. Is my incision still normal and according to the procedure. The problem is that I am 35 years old and married for 3 years, I have not had children because the concentration / form of sperm fluctuates and there are leukocytes / infections. And this varicocele surgery is the final solution.
Varicocele is a condition of the widening of the veins around the testicles which causes the scrotum to appear enlarged. If this condition is not treated immediately it can affect the number and quality of sperm. The surgical procedure to treat this condition is called a varicocelectomy.
Before performing surgery, the doctor will ask the patient to fast for 8-12 hours. In addition, if the patient is taking drugs that can thin the blood, such as warfarin or aspirin, it is necessary to stop first. Furthermore, when entering the operating room, the patient will be given an anesthetic through an IV tube, and a catheter tube is placed to drain urine.
The surgery begins by making an incision in the lower abdomen (near the groin). The size of the incision depends on the method used by the operator (the doctor who performs the surgery). Generally doctors can perform a laparoscopic method, which is to make a small incision and insert a device called a laparoscope with a small camera to see the condition in the patient's body, or make a larger incision so that they can see the condition inside without the aid of a camera. Next, the doctor will block the veins that cause varicoceles.
So the location of the surgical incisions made by your doctor is right and you don't need to worry. Furthermore, to speed up the recovery of surgery scars, you should get enough rest, consume foods high in protein such as fish, red meat, poultry and eggs.
