About before and after Varicocele Surgery

  • You do not need to shave before coming to hospital.
  • You should not eat or drink anything (including water) 6 hours before the operation time.
  • Do not use anticoagulant, blood thinner drugs such as Aspirin in the previous week before the surgery. Consult your doctor if you have a concern about this.
  • Bring with you a- a comfortable tracksuit type pants with elastic waistband, b- a tight slip underwear.
  • Your payment will be in two parts, a- to the hospital, b- to your surgeon. Surgeon’s fees should be fully paid before the operation as cash or bank transfer.
  • You are not expected to have pain, pain killers will be administered if you feel much discomfort.
  • I will visit you upon completing all of my operations.
  • The contamination of your dressing is completely normal and a condition that we have all been waiting for, do not worry.
  • IV liquids will remain attached until the evening hours and will be removed after the application of antibiotics. You may get up and walk to the bathroom before sleep by taking support from personnel. It is highly recommended that you do not stand up alone at the first attempt because of the possibility of dizziness depending on the anesthesia.
  • You can easily walk around in your room and enjoy your breakfast next morning. Early in the day your doctor or his assistant will change your dressing and you will be ready to check out from hospital.
  • After leaving the hospital use your prescription drugs at as soon as possible. You will use Zitromax 500 mg. for three days as an antibiotic and Majezik tablet not more than twice a day as an analgesic for a few days after surgery. It may be comfortable to wear a tight slip underwear during the first week after the surgery.
  • Avoid water to touch your sutures for one week after the operation; you can clean other body parts. The sutures will not be removed as they will dissolve in 15-20 days and after 15 days, you can remove any remainings by using washcloth. After a week you can take shower and have sexual intercourse. Lifting heavy weights after surgery will not harm the success of your surgery but may cause pain during the first month. After one month, you can start doing sports in a controlled manner.
  • Please have your spermiogram and FSH tests done four months after the surgery in the same laboratory and make an appointment for a free control visit.
