A subset of testicular torsion patients report resolution of their initial severe pain that is followed by variable periods of hours to days of reduced or absent pain. Other patients report only mild pain that is described as gradual in onset. Because of delayed initial presentations or less than timely returns for secondary evaluation, these pain honeymoons may be partially responsible for poor clinical outcomes of the torsed spermatic cords and ischemic testicles.
