Spermatic cord : The spermatic cord may be compressed. This structure carries sperm from the testicle to the prostate, and travels through the area of the hernia repair. Treatment may require surgical revision, but it may be a simple as a steroid injection. Get an appointment with the surgeon who did it or another general surgeon for evaluation.

See surgeon: Scar tissue may be compressing the spermatic cord, so see the surgeon for evaluation and treatment.
