As the question says, I’m wondering once you’ve had one testicular surgery what is the likelihood you’ll have another? Whether it is hydrocele, varicocele, epididylectomy, denervation, or orchiectomy.
I had hydrocele surgery in 2004 and went 16 years without complications, but I came down with chronic epididymitis on the same side 5 months ago. After all conservative care failed, I am coming to terms with the fact I might lose the testicle. I am not interested in pain management. I want to be pain free and I am very unlikely to sign up for an experimental try like denervation.
Trying to figure out how destined I was for this 16 years ago and if there’s a way I can present this to my family to prove I’m not overreacting.
Personally, I believe this is pissed off scar tissue in the cord and epididymis.
