A patient diagnosed with testicular cancer had testicular surgery. On the day of discharge, the nurse gave him which of the following correct instructions?


• If the patient experiences chills, fever, drainage, redness, or increasing pain, the physician should be notified because it may be a sign of infection.

• The risks associated with prolonged sitting with post-testicular surgery is not as high as with prostate surgery. With prostate surgery, sitting must be avoided because it can cause hemorrhage.

• With testicular surgery, a prosthesis is often inserted during the surgical procedure.

• The patient may be allowed to drive one week after testicular surgery.
