  • Sore hip/butt 2.5 weeks post orchiectomy and increased LDH

    My son age 22, had right Orchiectomy 2.5 weeks ago and just in the last 2 days has had increased right hip/butt pain. It so tender he can barely touch it. No bruising or excessive swelling present. He had a surgical wound check about 12 days post surgery that was good and pain was not present then. Anyone experience this? They rechecked his LDH as it was 322 prior to orchiectomy and it was 478. Is it normal for it to rise possibly due to surgery?

    I can't say I've heard of this, LDH is really a measure of inflammation, not cancer, so lots of things an cause it to be elevated.
