Hi All: I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced what I've got going here. Two weeks after surgery, I developed a tenderness in my right testicle and also feel an achy sensation in my right lower abdomen. Over the phone, the nurse said it's normal to feel this after surgery, but it has lasted well over a week. It's very annoying and making me wonder if I might have a hernia. Again it is only the right testicle and it's tender to touch. Any input would be appreciated.
