I hope everyone had a most wonderful weekend; that your Hanukkah and Christmas celebrations were all you had hoped - filled with the love and laughter of friends and family.
The family of one of my wife's co-workers did not have such a great weekend. Her son spent the weekend in the hospital recovering from surgery.
He’s 17. School is out for the holidays. He calls his step-dad. (His biological father died of prostate cancer years before – at a mighty young age, I might add.) He’s in severe pain and there’s an evident lump on one of his balls. He’s told to put ice on it; it’ll be fine. Day two, he calls again, sobbing. Step-dad leaves work and takes him to Urgent Care. Urgent Care examines him, and calls an ambulance. He’s rushed the hospital where a team is standing at the ready. He’s taken directly into surgery. He comes out of surgery with one ball.
Testicular Torsion, "twisted testicle" happens as a sports injury, but also commonly occurs at night during sleep.
When that happens, it is typically a result of "Bell-clapper syndrome" wherein the Tunica Vaginalis doesn't anchor the testis as it should.
A sign of a twisted nut is a "blue dot" on the sac. This is a sign of the blood supply already cut off and pooling.
But, a twisted ball can be corrected if done soon enough. Get “The Boys” toasty-warm so they hang real low. Sit on a chair and dangle them over the edge of the seat, and gently tap or otherwise massage.
If it doesn’t release – get to a hospital immediately.
Time is of the essence.
48 hours after, there simply was no way to save this kid's ball. A tragic example of how the "suck it up" machismo is wrong – particularly when there is something wrong with the package. It’s beyond me how a guy could withstand that much pain. I believe most men would’ve experienced nausea and vomiting, and/or passed out.
But, yet another example of why young guys need to learn about what hangs between their legs.
And what normal functioning is. That means a decent force to the stream when you piss.
Waking up with a woody most mornings
Good strong boners
Knowing that not all men produce copious amounts of pre-cum
That when a man cums semen is ejaculated out of the cock.
