10 weeks ago, I had a radical orchiectomy with bi lateral prosthetic replacement surgery. The surgical incision was approximately 2" midline on my scrotum down the raphe. In the beginning there was a lot of swelling and a hard "knot" of fibrous tissue forming under the scar. Most of that has gone away, however a small line of that is left, under the incision line, approx. 5-6 mm from the dermas. It is very hard and feels like a line of beads. What can I do to get rid of it. I have tried massaging since the stitches came out, and it has helped, but thats but not enough. It has an irritating feeling and can be about a 2 level of pain if touched wrong. Thanks.View Thread
I had a problem like this after my vas. didn't last as long. My doc had me on an anti inflamitory and it did the trick (unfortunatly testicular cancer got me 5 years later, no relation) Best of luck with it.View Thread
