What should I tell my doctor before the epididymectomy surgery?

Your doctor will ask you several questions during your initial consultation. The aim is to help maximize the results of the surgery and minimize the potential risks.

Prior to epididymectomy, it's important to talk to your doctor about:

  • any medications you are currently taking
  • any implants you might have such as a pacemaker, a heart valve, stent, or joint replacement
  • present or previous MRSA infections
  • any transplant surgery you might have undergone in the past
  • regular prescriptions for blood thinners
