I had ALIF L4/L5 fusion 5 days ago. I'm experiencing soreness and swelling in my left testicle. There is some swelling and i have bruising in my scrotum and even on my penis. The doc says testicle pain is not uncommon but the bruising is a bit unusual. He isn't concerned because I'm urinating normally, but to me it is a bit disconcerting to see my man parts all swollen and purple. I had not expected this at all. It wasn't mentioned anywhere in the reading material that testicle pain/swelling/bruising could occur. Has anyone else encountered this?
