Customer Question
I had my appendix removed...
I had my appendix removed this last Friday. I expect some bruising around the incision sites. But my penis and festivals have turned a redish black color over the last few days. There is no pain or swelling and am wondering if this is a side effect of having my appendix removed?

Hello,

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,such discoloration around penis and testicles is not normal after appendectomy.

It can be associated with hematoma formation due to internal bleeding.

However if it's getting worse over the time then you should see your doctor for a clinical examination to rule out any artery or vein has been ruptured during surgery which has later cause such discoloration.

You can apply cool compresses on affected area.

Hope this helps.

Let me know if you have any further query we can discuss it thoroughly.
We are here to help you until you satisfy.
Thanks.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
