Apparently in mtfs after srs phantom limb sensations are a lot less common than would be expected. Part of that might be due to surgeons trying to keep nerves as intact as possible, some might be due to neurological underpinnings of genital dysphoria. There's also individual variation of course. The closest I got to phantom sensations was occasional itching that I had some trouble finding the right place to scratch, but otherwise I was good and didn't have trouble adapting to the new arrangement. Touching yourself, exploring how sensations map to different locations, and studying yourself in the mirror all help your brain adapt. I mentioned above that OP's aversion to touching the orchi area might be part of the problem.>>9669671
Not if the scrotum is maintained and scarring is kept to a minimum. There's also the issue of shrinkage if there's a long delay between an orchi and srs. Stretching the scrotal tissue or implants can help keep the skin stretched out. >>9669678
AAs are an issue if you let your dick shrink and you never use it. Even if you don't like masturbation you should do it periodically, especially if you don't get morning wood anymore.>>9669687
As I mentioned, implants are the best way to minimize shrinkage. >>9669782
Ouch. The kicked in the balls feeling is bad. I can see why you would be reluctant to touch the area. You might need to carefully start doing so though. The nerves need stimulation. You definitely should get checked out more to make sure there's no lingering infection or cysts, scarring, or some kind of binding/pinching or something causing pressure on the nerves.
