I had a radical orchiectomy on Wednesday. If you want to throw up go look it up on Google images. We got to the surgical center at 5:30 am, and the surgery started at 7 am. I came out of the anesthesia better than my last surgery. Blueberry yogurt for breakfast. I had to urinate before they would let me go home, and my blood pressure spiked after that, so I had to wait for about 30 more minutes to go home. I was really cold when I woke up, so they gave me several blankets and a heater device that looked like an air mattress.
I took my bandage off this morning and took my first shower. That felt great. My incision is 3 inches long. The pain on surgery day was more like pressure. Since then it is more of a cutting or burning pain. I have been out walking a bit, and yesterday a neighbor’s dog jumped on me and hit my incision. That was wonderful. Two more days of rest before I head back to work.
