My 14 year old son had surgery this past July for double communicating hydrocles. As described by the doctor, the repair included the removal of the passageway and the sac. A few weeks ago, my son showed us that he has swelling again around one testicle and in the groin area very close to the scrotum on that same side. The doctor indicated that the hydrocele is back. How is that possible? Should we be questioning whether the first procedure was done correctly or not? Should we be getting a second opinion?
