Sorry for all the questions but I have tried asking CHN and gp but they don't give a clear answer so I continue to worry.....
    Seems that a few of us have similar worries. We need a ball expert!!!
    This was the story I got from my surgeon. I think it can be a concern, but perhaps depends on how hard they are to force down/ how long they spend up there, and how it changes as the child gets older. I was quite confident that my surgeon and GP were familiar with this and we're happy with their assessment. But if you feel like you're not getting answers then seek another opinion.

    Looks like my little man is going to need surgery. Gp said they like them to be down all the time by the time they're 2. His are definitely not. I'm to go for an ultrasound then it looks like my poor baby will need an operation. I'm glad and sad all at once

    Thanks, it does help. My referral is for a paediatric surgeon so he will tell me whether he thinks the surgery is necessary or not. Apparently he's the best in the country so I'm feeling optimistic

    Thanks so much everyone who is contributing to this thread.

    I think I have done the wrong thing to not seek further medical advice. My sons is almost 3......

    I guess you can't know it's too late until you take him back. I know how you feel though... Feel like I've left it too late but glad that we're now on top of it. Good luck to you!

    Please don't feel this way. We rely on the professional to tell us the right thing. It is the system that fails us.

    The post has been deleted so i can't quote from sethysmum.

    It certainly isn't true that the fertility will only be affected until puberty. My DH had the surgery at the age of 7. Enough damage had been done for his testes. He grew up in a small town and the town hospital don't have paediatrician to date.
