This may sound likr i am having a laugh but I am quite serious. I don't know if i had a larger than average ball bag to begin with but thanks to SCI life my sack seems to be getting more and more stretched. I think the problem occurs from them getting tangled up during transfers and my junk being reefed out in a hurry when I need to cath ( sometimes even resulting in little tears in the scrotum). I am seriously begining to wonder if I will nedd a ball lift or similar surgery at some point. Anyone else experiencing this ?

The scrotum is supported by the cremasteric muscles, which may not be working depending on the level of your injury. This may allow the tissue to stretch out a bit. This is also a common change with aging even in AB men. You do need to be careful about positioning in your wheelchair. This is usually more of a problem for those men who go "commando" (don't wear underpants). You can provide more support by wearing underpants (but not boxers) or even using a swimmers scrotal support (suspensory).

I was going to add something but then I looked closer and saw that the thread is about saggy balls, not soggy balls. Never mind. ;)
Really, though, I can't think of any reason how SCI could contribute to saggy nuts. Probably the opposite is true: sitting all the time negates the gravitational pull on your junk. The wheelchair functions as a 4-wheeled jock strap holding everything up. Sitting on your stuff is another matter and wearing tighty whiteys might help. Also, if chair is sized such that your legs are splayed the likelihood is greater that your things are going to shift around. That's another reason why I like having my legs closer together.
if your nutters are getting hung up on stuff you might consider more fitted man panties. they have a little pouch for your stuffystuff to ride in. I got my sweetie a furry pair for shits and giggles.
