See answer : The usually course of epididymo-orchitis, once treatment has begun, is that the pain and discomfort usually resolve or markedly improve within the first 2-3 weeks of antibiotics but reduction in swelling takes much longer usually in the range of 6-12 weeks and sometimes never quite returns to its pre-infection size.
