  • 4 weeks after Surgery

    Hi,
    New to this forum.
    I had Left Orchidectomy surgery 4 weeks ago next Monday.
    I sometimes feel a dull pain where the testicle was removed.
    Just wondering if other people have had this and it is normal.
    Thanks

      I can say, yes, the phantom pain is real. I am just over 6 months post orchiectomy and I get this awkward pain there.
