Thanks for posting your query.
The pain in the testicular area and groin is not likely to be related to the intussusception surgery you had.
Such kind of the pain is mostly related to a nerve injury or a pinched nerve at the level of spinal cord. An MRI of the spine will help in finding out the cause. You can also go for a nerve conduction velocity test after consulting your neurologist.
Till then for symptomatic relief, you can start with methylcobalamin supplements and Gabapentin. You can get these prescribed from your physician.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
