Hey bud, these are really questions for your doc. However, if you can masturbate without pain and your doc didn't say anything about not doing it....I'd say go for it. I think sexual intercourse may be another issue though!

Man I wish I could help here but I don't know how to answer your question and don't know anyone here to direct it toward. I'm wondering if you went to ***** would that site be able to help quickly?

Re: Inguinal Hernia & Masturbation ( VERY IMPORTANT )

I had an inguinal hernia repair surgery in 1996. I was mastubating again within a week. It was a little bit uncomfortable at first. Walking was done with care, while getting in/out of bed and taking stairs was done with GREAT care. I was back at work within a month. Driving, walking, climbing stairs, the whole bit. I still had to take it easy though. In two months, I was back to normal.

If your surgery was 3 weeks ago, you should be able to walk and take stairs slowly by now. Just continue to take it easy. Sudden motions like a little misstep or stubbing your toe can cause your wound to hurt.

I don't recall any testicular pain from masturbating. Then again, I didn't do a lot of that sort of thing during my recovery. You might want to see a doctor if you are worried or if the pain still persists after a week or two of further healing.

Odd question, but do your balls hang the same as they always have? Do they still retract and descend at times like before your surgery? Inguinal hernia repair involves that area near the cords and stuff that support the testicle, and I wonder if the pain you experience is related to scarring or something from the surgery.
