Hey everyone. I just had the varicocele surgery today for my grade 3 varicocele. I was asleep the whole operation. After i was done, i did throw up a bit. Right now i have blood stains around my area. I also have a rectangular tape right above my penis area where i assume thats where they cut. When am i suppose to take off the tape? Am i allowed to shower because i have blood stains that are drying out between my legs. It was on the left side the varicocele. I did not get a chance to talk to the surgeon afterwards b/c he left and i had to go home fast b/c i threw up and wanted to go home. The doctors at beth israel hospital in NYC told me to call my urologist who did the surgery on me to schedule an appointment to see him. I also have painkillers i had to buy called Hydrocodone/Apap for the pain i have.
