Day five: My wife helped take the bandage off yesterday, ouch! I would highly recommend that you shave yourself as they only shaved half the scrotum and the tape got stuck in hair on the crease of the leg too. This is the first day that I feel like I could leave the house if I had to. Even from the first day there was no pain if I just sat or laid down. Moving around had varying degrees of discomfort and soreness depending on what was being done. Just about
everything down there is black except the head of the penis. I probably should have used ice early on but didn't. I'm retired but I don't see how you could go back to any kind of work for at least a week.
Another thing I should have done is use a jock strap earlier. Just got one and it really helps but not for long periods of time.
One other thing that I'm concerned about
is that my testicle is swelled up about
3 or 4 times normal. Hope this isn't a problem.
