I have read plenty of testimonies of those who suffered from scrotum/testicle pain after an inguinal hernia surgery. Many of you have described the symptoms that seemed so similar to mine, but seemingly you all wound up fine, or perhaps the same thing happened to you, but I'll never know, because the majority of testimonies are never followed up.

He clearly presented the surgery as a breeze with quick recovery. Post op appointment he wants to talk about another surgery. He doesn't want to talk about my hip pain, he wants to smooth talk me about another surgery that has a 12 month recovery! I am doing fairly well at 8 weeks compared to others here, but I am not convinced this surgery will end up being something I'm glad I did. I did not realize that he was both a salesman and a doctor.
After a bilateral inguinal hernia repair, I experienced onset of swelling and excruciating pain in my left testicle, and along the spermatic cord. I was assessed in an emergency, and given an ultrasound, diagnosed with epidiymitis and given a course of antibiotics for 7 days. The Pain and swelling returned and I was given another 7 day course of antibiotics (Cipro, both times). It is now about 6 weeks post op. and I am still having acute discomfort.
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.
Hello - I recently had an open inguinal hernia repair on 11/19. They did not use mesh because my tissue was so healthy, so it was repaired strictly with sutures. I'm going on my third week and feeling almost back to normal: I run a dog sitting/training business and am back to regularly walking and working with dogs (the ones that don't jump :). Yesterday I was walking two dogs down a hallway and they pulled after a cat.
( The right testicle was now bigger than before the operation) I went to the Shouldice Hospital in Toronto, Canada to have the hernia and hydrocele repaired. Their diagnosis determined that I did not have a right inguinal hernia, but just a hydrocele. They repaired the hydrocele and they also checked for a hernia because the doctor was very suprised that the initial repair did not work. I did not have a hernia. My concern is over the swelling.
My urologist concluded that the fluid came back because I had a right inguinal hernia.

1- Go for a good urologist and surgeon using laparoscopic surgery which provides faster wound recovery and leaves no scars, as opposed to regular surgery which takes longer to heal the wound, and leaves a 2-3 inch c-section like scar in your groin area. 2- If money is an issue, get it done at an outside surgery facility not in a hospital, its cheaper, and has a lesser chance of infection... some hernia centers/ OBGYNs/Urologists and such have their own surgery facilities.
My son was diagnosed with trachea malacia at birth, was delivered by C-section/ breech. 1st I noticed that he was making a seal-like/ whooping cough sound when he began to cry after my recovery time/ at delivery his cry seemed normal. An Ear/nose/throat spec. did a scope to look at his trachea. Spec. said there was some edema around the trachea the trachea was extra soft and that his epiglotis looked under developed. Spec.

Hi, I read your post with interest as I have also been told the same thing recently after having a laproscopy to fix a suspected umbilical hernai and a suspected inguinal hernia. They told me on recovery that I had DR and that they had just closed me back up as there was no point stitching them together as they would only ome apart again. My post-op appt that I had this week, they told me that I could exercise again freely with no caution....
Greetings & How do? I'm journaling to let those interested know what's been going on with me medically & to express my current mental & emotional state. I'd like to document my ongoing recovery & impressions for anyone who might have to go through the same. I'd also like to share my experience thus far with having to take opiate painkillers post-op & to be witnessed in that sense by you, my comrades-in-arms.
Plus, I learned this was caused (almost certainly) by the device used to hold the scrotum during the surgery. Anyway, I'll be posting back here as my recovery proceeds Thanks again soo much for sharing your experiences!
Although I genuinely hope none of you have an inguinal hernia, it sounds to me like you all need to have a very accurate hernia exam performed!! An inguinal hernia can surprisingly cause MANY different pain-related problems, many of which are characterized by what you all have experienced. My doctors said chronic neuralgia as a result of a hernia/operation is a 1/50,000 occurrence. I experienced that in both left and right sides.
i have experienced and am experiencing the same life changing pain, which started after double hyrnia surgery (lower inguinal) in 2007. 5 years and counting ive been to every specialist, and have had every test done.. i had a beautiful daughter in 2001, im nearing 40 years old. in 2007 i weighed 160# and was very athletic, ambitious, sexually driven etc.. now, im 267#, and a totally different man from this pain.
I had always thought it was stomach/ gastro related,but tests were always negative. Turns out it was inguinal hernia. I had no bulge. It did not hurt after working out, lifting things, or how you commonly think of hernia. Just putting it out there. Two doctors missed it and it was misdiagnosed for something else which I had surgery for.
find anything medically wrong with me, I discovered a very small inguinal hernia which was pushing on the nerve in the inguinal canal causing ALL of the symptoms you have all been listing. so check out for any small lump that you can push back in right along the left side of your abdomen, so DONT waste all the damn money that I did for the dr's to tell you a buncha b.s and give you a buncha anti biotics assuming you have an STD or infection, even when you keep coming back clean.
I think it is an abdominal muscle tear - sports hernia (athletic pubalgia), inguinal hernia or something urological (epididymitis, varicocele, prostatis, etc). It looks like some of the nerves are affected, because of the tingling sensation, but the spinal MRI did not reveal anything. Do you have any idea what this can be and how can be treated? What other diagnostic tests should I have? Please, help if you can.
HI MY NAME IS JOHN, I HAD UMBILICAL HERNIA SURGERY ON AUG. 11, 2008. ON 8/13 WHEN I WENT TO BED I STARTED TO FEEL A BURNING ,NUMBNESS, SHARP PAIN, FROM MY THIGH TO MY KNEE ON MY LEFT LEG . NOW A WEEK AND A HALF LATER I HAVE THIS PROBLEM ON BOTH LEGS WHEN I BEGIN TO FALL ASLEEP AT NIGHT . I GOING TO SEE THE SURGEON AUG.21, AT 11 A.M. TO REMOVE THE STITCHES FROM MY SURGERY . CAN YOU HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND WHY AFTER MY SURGERY THAT I STARTED TO HAVE THIS PROBLEM ?
School example of gallbladder or biliary tree disorder. When you eat fats, gallbladder is contracted to expell bile, which is needed to digest fats. If there are stones/sludge in the gallbladder, this causes pain on the right side under the rib cage. Ultrasound is not accurate enough to detect small stones. The most reliable test of gallbladder function is a HIDA scan which shows "ejection fraction" of bile during gb contraction. HIDA may also show eventual problems in biliary ducts.
On a lymhoedema website it mentioned in just one line that after injury or surgery sometimes parts of genitals can develop sudden swelling and oddly enough it mentions swelling of the scrotum that makes the penis temporarily retract into the scrotum. There is no further explanation but maybe that`s another clue. Maybe a urologist can arrange an ultrasound as well to determine what kind of physical damage is present since your husband`s injury. Hope some of this helps...
) What can happen if I don't take them? I've had nightmares of growing hair on my face or my voice getting manly. Are my fears real? Can anyone share their experience or knowledge about hormones?
About a year ago I realized I probably have Inguinal Hernia but I'm too scared to do anything about it because I would probably would have to do surgery and that's a scary tought. If it would have been any where else on my body I wouldnt have cared as much. Now I am starting to notice bigger balls, and shrinkage in the actual penis! I don't have imputence (thank god) yet and hopefully never lol but i do have low sperm fertility (thin sperm) before it used to be thick and white.
In the meantime, I'm trying to take a hot bath every other day in order to keep the swelling down. I've also had great success with Cipro - it makes me feel almost normal. But you can't stay on it forever - or at least, doctors say you can't. If it helps me stay normal, I'd stay on anything forever! Morgannon P.S. Speaking of antibiotics, have you had an antibio regimen recently? Or a CBC?
So all in all, it was a nightmare... from billing to surgery to recovery to trying to figure out what went wrong.... just a nightmare. But in my first wave of trying to get second and third opinions, I met a couple of his patients who were disgusted as well with both how he runs his office and the end result. They both were looking for revisions, so 3 for 3 needing a repair job.
I am hoping that mine is due to the surgery and some of the extreme things they do with the hip in the OR. I just had a physical therapist visit and about 10 minutes after he left I got the sharp stabbing pain on the inner thigh. There was no warning, like a cramp, but instead a sharp grabbing pain. I was really worried it might be a blood clot, but I'm thinking probably not.
This latest bout has me considering one of the new surgical procedures to sew up the hiatal hernia and add elasticity to the LES. Does anyone have any experience with surgical intervention?
I am 4 weeks post surgery ~ a laproscopic vaginal partial hysterectomy. Surgery went off without a hitch, recovery has been super with minimal pain and I am extremely happy to report that I have not experienced any of the symptoms I posted above. It appears that all my cramping and severe pain with orgasm is gone (let me add that I have only experienced a self-induced orgasm & none via intervaginal stimulation ~ 6 weeks before that they suggested).
