Hello dear lybrate-user, hi Warm welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query thoroughly.* It is your own body, you can decide your organs to be removed or kept, but as an expert I will let you know the salient facts and features about orchidectomy - An expert will never advise orchidectomy without genuine reason.- With one side orchidectomy, man can continue with his hormonal secretions of testosterone and have normal sex activities with male features.- When done bilateral orchidectomy before 60 years (it is the time till there is testosterone secretion) the person looses all male characteristics from head to toe.* So think 10 times before deciding on your own. Can have further assistance of mine if you wish for this topic at private consultation at Lybrate.com Hope this clears your query. Wishing you fine recovery. Welcome for any further assistance. Regards take care.
