    Default Surgery for undescended testes

    Just wanted to see if anyone's little boy has had this surgery (orchidopexy).

    How old were they when they had the surgery?
    Any complications?
    How was their recovery?
    Anything else you want to share...

    Have found out both our little boys need the surgery and doing the typical worried mum thing.

    My son had it done at 14. Just one side was undescended.

    Recovery was fine. Kids bounce back so quick. However I wasnt prepared for how he was coming out of general just very spaced out.

    Surgery was day surgery.

    Good luck x

    Thank you. Yes I'm a bit worried as to how they will cope waking from anaesthetic and their pain afterwards as they are only 2.5 and 1.5 years old. Bit hard for them to tell me it hurts

    One of my son's had it done when he was just over 1. Still not walking. He was fine. Crawling and climbing as soon as we got home.

    My son had it done about 4 months ago, came through it like a champ. Recovered quickly - he was 7 at the time (8 now).

    Hi! DS had it done a week before he turned one.

    His left testis never developed properly so it was removed to prevent cancer, and the right one was stitched in place to prevent twisting.

    Was scary to see him come to after the anaesthesia, but within hours he was totally fine. Gave him panadol that night and he was good. He did get very bruised though. Oh, and the dissolving stitches will last a very long time.

    My partner has it done at 2 & he's good to go (so to speak!) so don't stress about future issues too much
