UPDATE - I just had my spermatocelectomy on friday 4/23 and it was a pieces of cake. I was in and out of surgery in 45 min.
For those of you who don't know what a spermacelectomy is, it is an operation to remove a benign fluid filled cyst from a testicle. Most men have these and they are small and they are told to just leave them alone. In my case, mine was the size of a golf ball and it was as if I had thrid testicle in my scrotum.. It got so big that there was no more room in my scrotum for my real testicles.
The surgery consisted of a 2 inch slice in the front of my scrotum and then the fluid filled sack was removed from the testicle. That simple.
I was expecting a lot of pain after surgery, but to my surprise, the only pain I had was from the straps from the scrotum support they put on me to hold the testicles in place. The straps were cutting into my legs because they were so tight. After the support came off after two days, I only felt a little aching and throbing in the scrotum at times, but nothing uncomfortable where I needed pain meds. Now after a week, I feel absolutely nothing and I am completely back to normal.
Footnote: I also had my three year PSA and that came in a <.04, so that made me happy also.
