I'm curious if anyone else has had this situation. My right testicle seems to be a little sore (sensitive) when I touch it. It doesn't really hurt except when touched and the pain is minimal. I'm wandering if this is a result of the surgery (robotic 2 weeks ago) or if there is something else I should be concerned about. By the way, there is no swelling at all.

Has it been this way since surgery? Or did you maybe smash the little sucker and injure it?

I only noticed it 5 days ago. Like I said, It only hurts if I push against it a little and the pain is minuscule.

After mr RP I had pain in the right testicle too! The pain was caused by cysts in the epididymis which is on the side of the testicle. I could CAREFULLY shocked feel the cysts. My pain radiated into my lower abdomen. I finally had the epididymus removed which also removed the PAIN. Hope your problem is not related and will clear up - but thought I would relate my problem FYI. Best wishes, AL
