User :   My 12-year-old son had varicocele surgery May 20 with no complications.
He has been invited to an amusement park for the whole day today - and he is an avid roller-coaster rider. After staying home for a week including the long Memorail Day weekend, my son attended school for the last four days of school, which involves quite a bit of up an down stair-climbing during the school day, often with his backpack. He prefers to still wear the jock-strap he started wearing when he first started walking around after surgery.
Today's roller-coaster riding, with all its bumps and thrills and spiinning, rush of excitements, etc., would be his first major activity. Is it a risk to let him go?
