One Testicle (Testicular Torsion)

Dear Ask The Doctor:
I had testicular torsion surgery Dec. 14th to remove one testicle. I was wondering when I would be able to play football again, and when I could start sprinting, and lifting weights (heavy). I plan on trying out for my college football team in February.


It has been six weeks since your procedure. This is more than adequate recovery time. It should be safe to resume all your normal activities including rigorous exercise.
