I had bi inguinal surgery 9 days ago.Pain wasn't too bad for me (45 yrs old),I took some aspirin and tylenol ,nothing else,I had sex 4 days after and all went fine until about 2 minutes after .I got a sharp pain in my left testicle .It was pretty rough the next 24 hrs so I called my doc who finally called me back 24 hrs later,at that point pain was much more subsided.The next day the pain is almost gone.Walking with no pain at all.Swelling has gone down in my scrodum a lot only to notice my left testicle is much higher than the right.Going to see my doc today.Any one else have similar outcome ?I am almost afraid to have sex so soon,

Went to doc and he said all is good,My testcle should drop and has no concerns.I just cornered the wife today for a little fun and right after I had pain in the left again.Almost feels like blue balls ,only the pain seems to be coming from a small mass on top of my testicle.I am wondering if the mass is my sperm cord bunched up and not letting that testicle release creating pressure.Two hrs later and still have a throb.Anyone else experience something similar ?

I had an open inguinal hernia repair a week ago.

I have not noticed any difference in the amount of semen produced or had any pain. The colour is also the same.

I have documented my recovery here: www.myhernia.co.uk

I had a inguinal hernia repair operation before 3 months. doctor advised to walk in a days after the operation. Right now am alright with walking , climbing upstairs. After the surgery, masturbated for more times, but i didnt feel any pain at that time...
Since from last three days am feeling slight pain in the operated area....Is it because of masturbation ?? or anyother infection inside...Specifically am gonna marry soon, is it will affect the birth of children...Can some one help in this issue.

I had surgery yesterday, an my girlfriend gave me oral sex today. I had laproscopic surgery. I have an three incision, my belly button an on either side of that. the doctor went in to check left for sure an possibly the right. My balls are feeling like they have alot of cum in them plus the meds, caused me to feel horny. I had a really good orgasm, but my left side is swollen I recommend waiting a few days, before having sex. The doctor had restictions but non for sex. My right shoulder hurts still. I walked to the mail box today, and wasnt able to walk totally upright. I feel the best when Im laying down with a pillow on the hernia area. Best wishes to all who read this.

Had the open mesh surgery 16 days ago. After one week i tried masturbating and was very surprised to find that i had no feeling during ejaculating... This was so concerning that i didn't sleep. Got a hold of the surgeon, and he said its not uncommon for changes in sexual performance to occur but said i will gain 100% of my natural performance back... I'm still waiting. have no problem with erections though. I went to see the doctor again today about it, only the PA was available and asked the chief surgeon about my problem. He came back and was emphatic that this type of surgery does not affect the nerves regarding an orgasm. I will go see my primary care doc to get to the bottom of this! I still maintain it was the surgery because this never happened to me before in my entire life. 44.

The biggest problem I'm having after my Lap Inguinal Hernia surgery is urine retention. I voided after surgery before I went home, but could not urinate and had to go back to the emergency room that evening to have a catheter inserted to relieve the pressure on the bladder. Two days later the catheter was removed and again I voided before going home. That afternoon, I again had problems urinating with pain and urgency to urinate but nothing coming out. I had to go back to have the catheter re-inserted where they drained 600 ml of urine. I was told to leave the catheter in for five more days. As for sex, how can you have sex of any kind with a rubber tube sticking out of your penis? I'm trying not to think about sex since getting an erection with the catheter inside is damn painful. At least the wife is understanding.

I had mesh inguinal surgery about 3 weeks ago. I had a lot of swelling around the area and it only started to go down after about 10 days. After 1 week I had sex. I let my girlfriend do all the work and was great. Problem is my wound opened up. This caused a lot of pain and more swelling. I had to go back to my doctor. He put some sterri strips. I m getting better now. My advice is give it 6-8 weeks. Other than that the sex was great a lot of fluid and ejaculation was prolonged.

Had a hernia op (65 years old)... I am two weeks past my surgery and walking 2 miles every day (instead of jogging), yoga (modified), and going to the gym (1/2 weights)...the doctor said to do it because it breaks down the scar tissue...As soon as this one little area heals over a few more days, I will start swimming again...I had the open surgery because the laproscopic failed (2003)...Never took the pain meds; just advil...the area turned all kind of terrible colors at first but all went away now, still a bit puffed up but not bad; doc said it would take a while to shrink up...The anesthetic made me shaky and dizzy for a couple of days but I drank 80 oz of H2O a day to clean out....glad I got it done because it was uncomfortable coughing or blowing my nose...sex is same as before as far as I can tell...Everything I read says nothing about non-surgical cures but I suppose there are always miracles!

I had Mesh surgery on the 17th May, spent 3 days, in bed, found it uncomfortable to sit up as normal, walking was not to bad, I had sex with my partner 18 days after surgery, found the best position was doggy style, this meant that I could control things, I tend to feel a bit of discomfort afterwards, but I can deal with that.
The pain is painly internal but that is just under the scar and is not as much a problem as the days pass since the surgery, I go back and see the surgeon in July, to me everything is looking ok.

Before I had the surgery I had noticed that the colour of my sperm had changed as was a yellowish colour, now it is back to normal and I am ejaculating as much as I was before I discovered the hernia.
