|I was diagnosed with an infection following a strain while lifting weights. I had bilateral Orchiopexy as a child and so am quite cautious when it comes to my testicles. I have had a couple of scans in the last few years I have a couple of cysts but have been told I have good blood flow and no Cancerous lumps.
My question is, if I have had double orchiopexy, am I less prone to torsion?
I have noticed that when I lift something or strain my abdomen, my left testicle (the higher of the two) feels like it rises and tilts slightly. But it returns to normal when my muscles relax. It isn't painful, but i do believe I have an abdominal/groin strain from the initial injury. Could this be causing a muscular reaction which pulls the testicle slightly?

|Orchiopexy is a surgery to move an undescended testicle into the scrotum and permanently fix it there. Orchiopexy typically also describes the surgery used to resolve testicular torsion. Orchiopexy can also be performed to resolve a testicular torsion. If caught early enough and the blood supply can be restored to the testicle, this operation can be performed to prevent further occurrence of torsion. If the blood supply has been interrupted for too long, an orchiectomy must be performed. Sometimes orchiopexy is also done preventively in adults in cases in which the patient has the bell-clapper deformity, retractile testicles, or intermittent torsion. Once you have gone for the Orchiopexy you don't need to for the another one and you need to be cautious while weight lifting as it can lead you to hernia.|
