    I had a double laproscopic inquinal hernia repair this past Thursday. . .its only been a few days but the repair sites and incisions are fine and just a tad sore. . but my left testicle is a bit swollen and bruised. Was told this was common and to be prepared. I was NOT told about the excruciating pain from this though. It feels like a 10 pound weight is tied to my nuts. I have to wear a jockstrap all the time or physically hold them up or it really hurts. I can feel the cord stretch inside my groin or like its stapled to the side of my body. No infection and the testicle is a bit tender, just hurts when they swing freely without support.
    Has anyone else experienced this and how long does this usually last??

    Mine did the same thing. Did you have distended intestines?

    The swelling lasted for about a week, the pain lasted about a week and a half, and then I could only be up and moving around for an hour or two at a time or I'd get stabbing pains in my crotch and get really exhausted.

    Took about two, two and a half, weeks for everything to get toally back to normal.

    On the right side my intestine was popped out but not the left. Everything I read about this has happened to the left testicle so I'm assuming there's a different physical placement of that tube. Glad yours got better in no time. Hopeing mine does too as I don't own anything other than boxer shorts and this one jockstrap. HA.
