What causes pain in left testicle post vasectomy?

I had a vasectomy performed 10 days ago, and am still having pain in my left testicle. The left is now hanging much higher than the other, and hurts to touch. I am also experiencing shooting pains in the testicle before and after ejaculation. What could be the issue?

Hi,

It can be due to delayed healing. Make sure your blood sugar are normal and you had enough rest after procedure. Take mild painkillers - if the issue persist you can think of going for ultrasound scrotum.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. S. R. Raveendran, Sexologist
