Orchiectomy

Orchiectomy post op incision.jpg

Picture in operating room highlighted with yellow marker since incision is hard to see. This photo is immediately after removal of both testes. 2-3 cm incision, vertical, below base of penis. Dissolving suture. 

In 8-12 weeks, this will be a thin line barely seen, by 1 year redness in scar tends to turn pale white for most patients.

Recommended 2 weeks off work.

Generally a quick recovery with very little pain medications for most patients.
