I had testicular pain -- my right testicle felt like it weighed about
10 pounds for weeks after da Vinci surgery. Had an ultrasound done, which was negative. It eventually went away though -- at about
eight weeks. Ask your doc to check you for hernias though. I wound up with a double and had them repaired.
Best to ya,
