Common Questions and Answers about Hernia surgery testicle swelling


Avatar m tn The pain could be due to the inflammation post surgery. As the swelling resolves, your pain should decrease. One testicle being lower than the other is a common occurrence. However, if the pain persists or if there is discharge, please consult your doctor. In the meantime you can take OTC Iburpofen pain medication. Ensure to take this medication after food to avoid gastritis. Apply cold compress to the wound for relief. Take Care! Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn I've had a hydrocele surgery at the age of six, left side inguinal hernia surgery at the age of 10, and a right side inguinal hernia surgery at the age of 24. My right testicle have been attached closer to my body since my hydrocele surgery and I can clearly remember how uncomfortable it felt to have such an abnormal position of your testicle. After 20 years, I still feel some discomforting pains (on my right testicle) when exercising.
Avatar n tn Hi, Thanks for writing in. A hydrocele testis is the accumulation of fluids around a testicle, and is fairly common. A hydrocele testis is due to fluid secreted from a remnant piece of peritoneum wrapped around the testis called the tunica vaginalis. It can also be as a result of cancer, trauma or orchitis. It can also be the result of a plugged inguinal lymphatic system caused by repeated chronic infection.
Avatar m tn 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.

Avatar m tn The growth feels like it is attached to the testicle (it feels like a chord connected to the testicle) and there is also swelling in the testicle. This seams to be the case only in the left testicle. The right testicle appears to be normal or a little smaller i really don't know (and it does not hurt at all). Could this be due to low intake of water? I don't know if it has anything to do with the swelling but the my urine color was dark yellow.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn The fact that you mention the cough test for a physical was OK gives me the indication that you have not had your doctor mention a hernia to you. I had lived with intermittant swelling (lump) in the right inguinal region. Unlike you I had eperienced some discomfort at times while lifting things at work. I used to be a heavy duty mechanic shop foreman. Having had many medical examinations for other problems the possibility of a hernia was never brought out by either my doctor or myself.
Avatar n tn After I had open inguinal hernia surgery the left side under the incision became numb and is still part numb after two weeks. But the left testicle has become enlarged has not gone down. Could their be something gonig on other than post op swelling?
Avatar n tn Two nights ago I noticed z watery swelling at the base of my Penis shaft. Further my spermatic cord as it enters toward my left testicle is quite firm and swollen. Really no black and blue- or constant pain.I also have a swolen scrotal sack with some sort of watery swelling, is all this normal?
Avatar m tn If an infection caused the swelling, then you may be prescribed antibiotics and anti inflammatory drugs. Surgery may be necessary to correct the condition if the underlying cause is varicocele, hernia, or hydrococele. Hope that this information helps and hope that you will get better soon. Wishing you good health.
Avatar f tn Do you have abdominal pain? Do you have any lumps or swelling anywhere else? Have you ever had surgery on your testicles or in the area? Were you born with both testicles in the scrotum? If none of these questions were addressed, I'd say get a second opinion for sure. Good luck Jack, I hope you find the info you need! I'll have administration transfer your post to Urology, hopefully you can get more info there.
Avatar m tn In 2006 came down with right inguinal incarcerated hernia and was close to loosing remaining testicle. Prior to surgery was told of the possibility of loosing the right testicle. I did not conscent and after supervision of a urologist, testicle was saved during the hernia repair. 2009 came down with an abscess on the right inguinal area and was once more concerned about the loss of the right testicle. After a several day testing had abscess drained successfully.
737151 tn?1232303376 The pain will not subside unless the testicle is manipulated into the correct position with surgery, which needs to be done within an hour or irreversible damage to the testicle can occur. Also a hernia, could cause pain in testicles accompanied by discomfort in the lower abdomen, but this does not develop suddenly. It could most probably be infection, a urine analysis with culture would determine the organism causing this.
Avatar m tn testicle pain and swelling post hernia surgery.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn Hi Severe and chronic testicular pain following inguinal hernia surgery may be due to causes like ischemic orchitis ( injury to the blood supply of the testicle leading to pain in swelling in the testicle), chronic nerve injury leading to chronic pain in the groin, scrotum or leg or perhaps formation of a hematoma ( collection of blood in the remaining hernia sac) . Your inguinal pain could be neuralgic, due to the pressure on the nerves caused by the scar.
Avatar m tn but now this year it seems as if it's becoming worse. it just started two weeks ago. the pain that i have is in my right testicle going to my lower back next to my kidney and butt. i have not seen any swelling. is this serious?
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn I recently had left inguinal hernia repair surgery and noticed my left testicle is hanging much lower and back a bit as if it is just hanging in the scrotum without anything attached to it. This testicle is not moving up or down with hot/cold like my right testicle is. It has been 8 days since my surgery and i still have alot of swelling and numbness in my left inner thigh.
Avatar n tn The surgery was performed without any complication, in fact after the surgery I touched the testicle and I did not feel any pain. 24 hours after the surgery my right testicle swelled to the size of an avocado and the pain is extreme. Today is my 5th day after the surgery and the swelling hasn't go down neither the pain. I would like to know what to do to eliminate the swelling? If I masturbate will I be able to eliminate the swelling? Perhaps release pressure? Please help me.
Avatar n tn A urologist and the surgeon both recommended to leave the testicle alone and not do another surgery and introduce more trauma. My question is: How long will it take for the testicle to decrease in size to a point where it doesn't cause me unbearable pain? I am okay lying down but sitting, standing, or walking causes tremendous pain that increases the longer I am no lying down. The urologist said it could take up to 2 months but I am skepticle and think it could take much longer.
Avatar m tn A month before that I was diagnosed with non bacterial prostetitis. Since my surgery I have a mild swelling with no sign of infection above my right testicle, (where the testicle would pop into the canal if I was cold). Periodically I have mild discomfort there and my testicle will feel kinda full. This comes and goes. The surgeon that did my Appy said that it could be the start of a hernia, but then again it might not be. Currently, he said...no hernia.
Avatar n tn I have an appointment with my surgeon on monday to review and schedule a surgery for my hernia but I want any other opinions too. If anyone read all this - seriously you are my hero. Thank you.
Avatar m tn 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?
Avatar n tn I cannot tease out the various possibilities however on the basis of the information available, since varicocoeles can also cause tesiticular pain. If there is swelling and inflammation around the surgery site the pain can be potentially worse in the short term.
Avatar n tn On Jan 5, 2009, I had a surgery for an inugural hernia. When i got out of surgery i noticed that the left testicle was further into my body, like half in the sack and half inside. the doc said that it should go back down so i trusted him, they also told me that the pain from the surgery should go away within 2 to 3 months.
