You can do exercise only as you can tolerate as you are the best judge of your own body. its also depend on kind of job you do? if desk job you can resume after 2 months of surgery. make sure you use vitamin E cream on scare and give little massage that will prevent bulge of scare tissue between you skin and sternum. Use bike after 3 months of surgery and ride slowly . you also need to discuss all of these with your own surgeon. Spartan

hi there, im inquiring for my husband whom is suffering from aches ect, he had the snip done around 9 years ago, procedure went well, a few years after the snip my husband was suffering with pain and swelling in the left testical, we followed this up and he was told that he had blew a seel, meaning his testy was being choked by variagus veins, so he had an operation to have his left testy removed. every now and then he has been suffering from a pain in the ball that is no longer there, when he urinates he feels a sensation running down the inside of his left leg, also he says he has a light burning sensation running down the same area, and pain near the scar where they made the incision for the removal of his testie, hubby has had prostate checks and all clear, sitting up causes him discomfort in the said areas..any insight would be much appreciated..
