My little brother (13) was transferred from University of Durham Hospital A&E to the RVI with testicular pain and discomfort, which was then suspected to be a twisted testicle or a cyst. He had every necessary test and scan and was cared for phenomenally and was given the right pain relief. They soon decided to operate and it was the least traumatic experience he's has with 'genital issues' so far, as he's had problems in the past and we were very worried they were back. Our minds were put straight at rest and a cyst was removed quickly. He spent a comfortable night there and was discharged the morning. It's been a week since he got home and his stitches are healing well. A doctor who's shift ended just before he went into the operating room called us anxiously to check how he was and how it went. I'm so glad he's okay and was cared for well. Thank you so much everyone x
