Brief Answer: Seek Help, Need work up and examination Detailed Answer: Thank you for asking XXXX I am Dr S Khan and i would like to answer your query for inflamed testicle after appendicectomy. Geriatric age with concomitant diabetes always comes up with some post operative complication even for a small procedure like lap appendectomy. Also Appendicitis is accompanied by UTI so these symptoms occur in that case. Now to sort out whether it is just an inflammation orchitis or some thing more, it needs a proper examination and work up by a general surgeon to help. If you have fever or chills or urinary frequency and urgency issues then it may need antibiotics which your doctor will prescribe to you. Seek their opinion and let them examine it.Meanwhile following will help Reduction in physical activity Scrotal support and elevation Ice packs Anti-inflammatory agents Analgesics, including nerve blocks Avoidance of urethral instrumentation Sitz baths I hope it helped. Take care XXXX and close the discussion please. Regards S Khan
