How long did the surgery take, recovery time, etc. would be helpful. Did I mention that the only app. I could get is the same week we are moving?
There was a small mass they removed. He was loopy for the rest of the day and fine after that. We used some of the meds after for pain, but not all of it.
I dont' know if you've tried, but give him a warm bath and see if his Teste decends in the warm. You can palpate too to see if you can feel it.
But, she prepared us quite well just in case and really it is all done laproscopically (hope that is a word) and would be an out patient procedure.
Wishing you the best of luck and don't worry too much.
I've talked to a few people, both online and irl, and from what i understand it is a common thing and often does come down on its own. It seems that waiting until age 3 to take surgical action is current practice. I did do some minor research on accupuncture/chiro care for this and didn't find anything.

He has the surgery within a week of seeing the specialist-I think he was 19ish months. They told me that cellular changes (talking fertility here, not cancer) start very early so they like to have it done before 18 months.
My son's was complicated in that the testicle was stuck essentially so his surgery took longer and was more complicated than they had expected. Still, his recovery was absolutely fine.
Kids with an undescended testicle are at higher risk of testicular cancer in both testicles. The timing of bringing it down (or not) doesn't matter for that. But a big reason to bring down the testicle outside of preserving fertility is so that the child can detect lumps in the testicle.
