    Had surgery 12/10 (Hydrocelectomy)... Need to know when it's safe to work out?

    So as the thread title says, I had a hydrocelectomy on my scrotum about 3 weeks ago on Thursday Dec. 10. Prior to that, the last time I hit the gym was Tuesday, Dec. 8... Recovery is going well, and there is really "no pain" as days go by. I still have 5 stitches on my scrotum and I feel very good (pertaining to recovery and everything).

    So my question is, when should I be able to work out again? Has enough time gone by? Will the stitches re-open, or bleed when I exert effort? (Obviously not going 100% the first day back in the gym) But It kills me to know I can't really do much, or I haven't done anything active since Dec. 8...

    Advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Not seeing him for another 3-4 weeks, and he's very hard to get in touch with as he's a Urology Surgeon. Always in surgery if he's not in the office.

    6 weeks, had this done on 8/14/09


    pain went away after 1 1/2 weeks, wound completely healed at 6 weeks, and swelling went completely away after 9 weeks.


    however, spermatocele got bigger(went from a walnut size to a golfball size after healing) just had this removed last friday, so im back out for another 6 weeks, no pain at the moment but swelling is TERRIBLE

    I am the on-call Misc doctor this morning and I would recommend some HIIT squats this morning to test out those stitches....report back after your workout...

    Alright, cool thanks. Also, did you work out AT ALL? during those 6 weeks? Or did you just deal with it like I am now and not do anything, and not even care about what you're eating or drinking... And sorry to hear about the spermatolcele, getting these types of surgery are a huge pain in the as$... hope everything goes well

    A hydrocele is an assumulation of fluid in the sac... basically, the area around my right ball swole up with an accumulation of fluid, making it look like my ball was 3x bigger than it really was. Also causing much discomfort since it was heavy and swollen for months.

    After the first week I did 200 pushups twice a week and didn't really care about a diet if that helps.

    I had stomach surgery and I worked out I think like 6 weeks later. Be careful though, even if you think that a certain exercise might not effect that area, you'd be surprised how bad the smallest tug in the wrong spot could hurt where you were sewn up.
