Pains in remaining Testicle after rapid orchiectomy

My husband's right testicle was removed back in September when he was diagnosised with testicular cancer, and now he is experiencing a dull throbbing pain in his remaining left testicle after intercourse. All tests have concluded there is no more remaining cancer left in his body. Is this a normal response, or is it possible that it could be a complicaiton with the surgery?

Some men do report pains in their remaining testicle after surgery however this is not necessarily a normal thing and many times it ends up being nothing. I wouldn't be concerned that it is a complication from surgery or even a recurrence of the cancer. However, It probably is a good idea for him to get a scrotal ultrasound just to see what it going on for sure. If the pain is very intense then getting attention quickly is important just in case it is testicular torsion. Otherwise, just have him call the urologist and get a quick ultrasound.
