  • Pain in incision 1 month after I/O

    Hello everyone.

    So, this is my 2nd round with TC - lost 'righty' in 2011 and 'lefty' 5 weeks ago.

    I took it easy for 1 week after I/O, just walking around the house. Then I started gradually walking outside - started with 2 miles and now I'm around 4/5 miles.

    Nevertheless, even though my orchiectomy was more than a month now, I still have pain at the incision site. I can feel it while walking and it's painfull when pressed. There is also still a slight bulge over the incision.
    I don't remember taking this long to recover from my first I/O in 2011.

    Does anyone have/had similar issues with I/O recovery?

    Thanks in advance, everyone.

      Hi Dave.

      Went to see my doc earlier this week. He checked it and used the ultrasound but found nothing unusual.
      I have a desk job, but I started using it as a standing desk more and the pain seems to be subsiding... I guess the pressure caused by sitting for large periids of time was not helping.
      I hope it reduces more and more over the next days so I can start running/exercising again. Missing it already....

      Thanks!

        Glad he found nothing concerning, but my advise would be to not push it if it's hurting. Pain is our body's way of saying something isn't right. Best to listen to it & act accordingly. You will soon feel normal again.
