Orchiopexy at 11 years

An_258635 posted:
My 11 year old has undescended testis and it appears that surgery (Orchiopexy) is the only treatment. I'm really scared.

If you have a 10+ year old that went through this procedure then please share your experiences. How bad did it hurt? what was the recovery like? are things normal now? etc.

Also, is there an alternative to surgery to correct this?
