Hi there!

This would depend on what was the surgery performed for. If there have been testicular issues since a long time, there could be fertility issues. A testicular biopsy for sperm salvage and storage may be performed in cases where considered necessary, I would suggest discussing the situation and the appropriate management plan in detail with your treating urologist.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
