"It was impossible for the testicle to descend on its own."

Hi Everyone,

James Sullivan shares this story about his young son and his undescended testicle.  They were told by the Urologist that it was impossible for it to descend on its own and that surgery was necessary.

James, through some creative questions, uncovered an emotional reason for the problem and quickly relieved it with EFT.  As a precaution, he also had his son undergo a session of Cranio-Sacral Therapy so we can't say for sure which of them did the job.  However, the job was, indeed, done and no surgery was necessary.

Hugs, Gary

By James Sullivan

My oldest son "Dan" had an undescended testicle. The pediatrician had kept an eye on it, and when Dan got to be 11 years old and it still had not descended into position, we were advised to see a urologist.

I took Dan to the urologist and was informed that the testicle was hung up in the abdomen for an unknown reason. The urologist drew me a diagram of how the testicles form and then descend down to their normal position in the scrotum. The urologist said that surgery was definitely necessary to effect the necessary correction and that it was "impossible" for the testicle to descend on its own.

I preferred to wait a while longer, but was then told that the surgery should happen within the next few months or we would risk the viability of the testicle. If it stayed "high" it would not produce viable sperm, even if it were to be brought down when he is older. I inquired into the risks of surgery, and was told that as with any surgery, the risk was 1 in 50,000.

I inquired as to what it was we were risking, but the urologist was loathe to voice the "D" word. I did it for him. This was a tough decision. On the one hand, I wasn't willing to risk my son's death over a testicle. On the other hand, he was too young to make the decision himself, I felt, yet it was he who would suffer the consequences of the decision.

I wished for another option, and it presented itself immediately in the thought that perhaps the cause lie, not in some physical impediment, but perhaps an emotional one. I talked to Dan privately that evening, and simply asked him why he thought the testicle would not "come down". He immediately quipped, "Because he's afraid of getting kicked again!" I was astonished, both at the answer itself, and the rapidity with which it was delivered. It was almost as though Dan was just waiting for me to ask the right question.

I asked him what he meant, and he explained that a long time ago he had been accidentally kicked very smartly in the groin by one of his friends during a game. Not knowing whether this was indeed the cause, nor how long ago it had happened, I decided to go ahead and use EFT on Dan with hopes it could make surgery unnecessary. We had nothing to lose.

I spent no more than 5 minutes tapping on Dan, using "even though I am afraid of being kicked in the groin...I no longer need to protect myself by withholding my testicle from it's normal place.." I further reinforced this idea by comparing the relatively relaxed state of the other testicle which was normally placed, and reassuring Dan that the "reluctant" testicle could safely join the other.

I felt certain that Dan would respond to the EFT and that surgery would not be necessary, but since time was of the essence, and I didn't want to risk a month of precious time to find out it might not respond, I took one further precaution and took Dan to a cranio-sacral therapist for one session.

Within one month's time, the testicle descended on its own into normal position. Regardless of the fact that I can't conclusively say our success was solely due to EFT, I can say conclusively that what was causing Dan's complaint was not as the conventional medical advice indicated.

Taking responsibility for our own health, in this case, spared my son having unnecessary surgery, including the possible painful complications and chronic after-effects such as I experienced from my own vasectomy.
