Hi, Pain in the scrotum following an inguinal hernia repair may persist anywhere between 3 months to 1 year after the surgery. Swelling in the scrotum following surgery should resolve within a few weeks, but if it persists, you need further medical attention. Pain in the scrotum following an inguinal hernia repair can be alleviated by wearing close-fitting underwear (do not wear shorts) and avoiding physical exertion that strains the abdominal muscles.
I had a Right Inguinal hernia repair and exploration of right scrotum on Christmas day, it was first suspected to be a contorted testicle. the swelling has gone down enough now to notice for sure that the right testicle is attached to the scrotum in a high and forward position. sex is now completely out of the question because it is being crushed every time i thrust, my partner and i have tried every position we know and 80% of them result in it being in the way. What can be done to release it?
hi I was told i had a inguinal hernia, and sent for surgery in july of this year, post op I was told there was no sign of hernia? within hours my scrotum swelled up to 5 times normal size, now my left testical is double the size and very painfull to touch, my left groin area have what feels like three large tubes side by side leading to the testical, and I have pain in my stomach as well, the pain starts low and then moved up and along each day, now it is just on the left hand side.
The problem is, right from my birth i use to have hydrocele on the my right scrotum and my left scrotum will be saggy. After right hernia repair and needle aspiration surgery on my right scrotum, now my right scrotum became normal but my left scrotum is little bit saggy than the right. I have noticed that even my left scrotum would be of normal shape and size in the morning and as the day proceeds it becomes little saggy.It didn't cause me any sort of pain normally.
I have been warned about any surgery to repair this as there is a great risk that I might loose the testicle as the result of surgery do to some complication. Prior to the hernia surgery, the surgeon told me to be prepared to loose the right testicle during the surgery. I then refused to sign the conscent forms. I was very pleased to wake up still having my testicle. All the best.
I have noticed swelling occuring in the scrotum behind the testes, and it is very discomforting, and minorly painful. The symptoms seem something similar to a hydrocele but I am not sure. The swelling occured today and the scrotum appears to have swollen to the size of a grapefruit. The testicles are completely unaffected, I am just unsure of my condition for I am only 16 years old If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated if you could tell me how to recover properly.
The doctor gave me a steroid injection called Kenalog and said the swelling should go away within 24 hours. The swelling did go down throughout the day, but the aching continued. I started getting painful areas on my skin( palms of my hands, outsides of my knees and my tailbone). My hips ached so badly i could barely walk, but i just gave it time per doctors orders. Oce again i awoke the next morning with the same itchy "hives".
On March 17, 2011, I was emitted into the ER for an inguinal hernia on my left side. The ER wanted to attempt to push my intestine back in; I assured them that it was not a possibility, that immediate surgery was necessary, but they insisted. After I woke up from the twenty minute anesthetic, the doctor told me that they were unsuccessful in pushing my intestine back in, and surgery would be necessary as soon as possible.
im scared now my 8 week old son has just had surgery to repair a inguinal hernia n he has severe swelling and bruising and the surgeon told me not to worry n that it was normal

I believe and operation could be done but your friend would need blood transfusions to replace the blood he lost during the surgery. Some people say that if hernia explodes inside the body, it will kill the person. No, not true. If his intestines get twisted in the hernia that is what your relative needs to be concerned about. See information below as to what danger signs are. Hep C is not the problem.
After two weeks the infection was controled. They never closed the scrotum and packed the open scrotum with saline soaked gauze. I had sitz bath about every 4 hours and had the gauze changed. I was discharged after about 2 weeks. I went home with the scrotum still open as it was supposed to heal from the inside out. For the next 2 months my wife had to pack my scrotum with the saline soaked gauze untill the scrotum closed. Gauze was changed every four hours like at the hospital.
The diagnosis was a left hydrocele. Surgery was required. I had this surgery in June (almost 6 months ago). After the hydrocele corrective surgery my left testicle **really** swelled up BIG. It did eventually decrease in size, but never to where it should be. It is still HUGE compared to my right. Went to the Urologist. He removed 200mL of fluid a week ago. Now it is back to same size it was when I went to see him.
I had my inguinal hernia surgery 1 week ago. I still have some pain in the scrotum/testicles. But it turned out that a lot of my discomfort, at least in the perineum, was due to hemorrhoids of all things! It turns out that sitting on a donut pillow was making my hemorrhoids a lot worse. It will take a few more weeks to discern whether the hernia surgery will help the remainder of my pain. Thanks again.
In cases of hernia, a prominent bulge along with testicular pain is there and in cases of kidney or ureteric stones, pain during micturition may also be there. You can provide support to the scrotum by wearing an athletic supporter, apply ice to the scrotum, take warm baths if there are signs of inflammation, while lying down, place a rolled towel under your scrotum or try over-the-counter pain relievers, like acetaminophen or ibuprofen. If the symptoms persist then please consult a urologist.
After few consultation dr diagnosed and to tthe surgery.. he found a nodule and did hernia and hydrocele surgery. Its been 1 monh 1nd 1 week. i m recovering but the swelling of the right testes still there and i started feeling left side testicle discomfort while a little bit of walking and sitting. Is it due to the hardness of the right testicle? i could not normal as before.
There are many medical conditions that can present as a mass in the scrotum. These include but are not limited to hernia, hydrocoele (an acummulation of fluid in the tissue layers that encircle the testicle), benign cyst, infection, varicoele, and the most feared testicular cancer. From your description of physical findings, it sounds like this mass may be a varicocoele. A varicoele is a dilation of the pampiniform plexus, which is made up of the veins that drain the testicle.

If this is a permanent side effect of the hernia surgery is there any type of surgery to repair this? This concerns me because i like to play sports and i am very active which is why i opted for the hernia surgery in the first place and the way i feel now is very uncomfortable. I just hope i havent traded one problem for another...thanks for any answers and help you can give me, thanks.
On September 21st I went in for day surgery the first of three separate surgeries, the surgery for the 21st of September was a hernia repair a simple straight forward procedure. I have had a hernia repair before it was quick an easy and for me there was no pain I healed fast and that was that. That this operation is totally different I was wracked with pain. My 70 year old father had to come and help me just to get me out of bed I couldn’t understand what was going on.
What if you have had hernia surgery already? Can you do situps then? I had hernia surgery Jan 23 2009 and now I have mesh around my whole abdomen.
When my son was about 16months old, he had a hydrocelectomy done on his left side only. The fluid returned (and even accumulated on his right scrotum) and he thus had a 2nd "corrective" surgery just 5 weeks ago (he's almost 2 and a half yrs old now). During the 2nd surgery, his a hydrocelectomy was again done on the left side and a hydrocelectomy and hernia repair was done on the right side.
All that does is increase the inflammation. It's impossible to say if the drugs have worked with any swelling, as there wasn't any swelling in the first place! A family member who works at our local hospital knows urologists, and family member himself recenty had a dose of epididymitis. In his case, his doctor told him "it might be cancer". White as a sheet, he went for an ultrasound, to which they found inflamed epididymis.
You could have a cyst in the epididymis which is benign and rarely needs surgery for pain control. This would be seen on the ultrasound. An inguinal hernia would be the other possibility which may also explain your groin discomfort. A hernia usually presents as a bulge in the groin. It is recommended that this condition be corrected surgically before it gets larger or causes more problems. 4.
Last September I suddenly had a pretty sharp pain in my left testicle. I went to the urologist and he said I was fine. It didn't go away. I went back and he diagnosed me with epidydmitis, and gave me meds. They didn't work. I went back and he ordered an ultrasound. He said it came back clear. I could physically feel a small tender lump behind my left testicle, so I knew something wasn't right. I finally went to a different doctor and within 5 seconds he diagnosed me with a spermatocele.
Hello. Recently I had surgery for a double hernia. My doctor was going to do it laproscopically but it turned out that there was too much scar tissue from a previous hernia so he had to do it through my groin area on both sides. I felt great right after surgery because the pain of the hernias was no longer there. However two days later my scrotum was very swollen. My scrotum was a little larger than both of my fists put together. It is still swollen. It is still very tender.
If you are referring to hydrocele repair, it is the surgery done to correct the swelling of the scrotum that occurs when a hydrocele or backup of fluid is present in the testicle. The doctor usually drains the fluid after removing part of the hydrocele sac. This repair is done when he hydrocele becomes too large and causes problems with blood flow in the area and when there is also a hernia present. Take care and best regards.
I also had a Hydrocele reapir. It was combined with an Inguinal Hernia surgery. There seems to be a lot of scar tissue on the left side of penis and scrotum and hurts to the touch from just below scar down to under the scrotum. The testicle is very lasge. I also find myself wishing I would not have done this. Is it more problematic to have the hydrocele repair done this way or with an insicion in the scrotum?
