Undescended testicles are increasingly common, and as a parent you will have to deal with the challenge of knowing what to do with their son, and going through an operation for someone whom you love very much. And your son will have to come to terms with his undescended testicle when older, the experience of being in hospital, and how girls may react to him.
Welcome! I built this site for two different audiences:
- parents whose sons have one or more undescended testicles and need surgery, and
- men who have had an orchidopexy.
This site is independent – the information is not coming from a hospital or surgeon. I tell it like it is and leave you to make up your own mind. I love to hear from parents in this situation – please drop me an email any time!
What’s it like having an orchiopexy as a child?
A lot of websites tell it from the parents’ view (see here for links to their stories), but I couldn’t find any written by the child. Start with my story of having undescended testicle surgery at the age of 3, and find out how much it’s shaped my life.
