The scrotal support or support dressings are required for a few days. Shower can be taken 24-48 hours after the surgery. Normal activity usually resumes within 4-7 days. Occasional doses of narcotics can be taken for the pain. Hydrocele may transiently occur after a month due to the edema but that gradually goes away and nothing much to worry. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
Yes, by routine activity, I mean all the routine activities that a human being does while living and thus driving, walking, jogging, lifting bags etc. One may feel slightly uncomfortable for the initial few days but later on there’s relief from the same. However, in case, there’s any pain or worsening of the swelling or appearance of any new swelling, then the urologist should be consulted for the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
I had Hydrocele surgery 6 months ago, expecting a full recovery after a month. However still becomes very sore and I can not do all the regular activities I used to do without getting soreness and pain. My surgeon doesn't seem to think it's a big deal, but it doesn't seem right. What is wrong with me? Should I be worried? What should I do?
MY 4 YEAR CHILD DEVELOPED HYDROCIL RECENTLY BEFORE THAT HE IS ALRIGHT.ONE DOCTOR SUGGEST ME WAIT FOR 6 MONTHS AS WATER IN TESTIS CAN BE ABSORBED BUT ANOTHER DOCTOR SAYS ME THAT OPERATION IS THE ONLY CURE WHAT SHOUD I DO WAIT FOR SOME TIME OR GO FOR OPERATION .
