Seek Help, Need work up and examination
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
Analgesics, including nerve blocks
Avoidance of urethral instrumentation
I hope it helped. Take care XXXX and close the discussion please.
