NO: One may feel like it's smaller while the swelling is resolving but otherwise you gots what you gots.
Dr. Ravi Chauhan

No: These are not likely related.
Dr. Joseph Sucher
Trauma Surgery 27 years experience
Absolutely not: You may experience swelling in and around you penis an this may make it appear as if your penis is smaller than its usual size. But, suffice it to say, your penis is not going to get smaller due to a hernia surgery.
Dr. David Earle
General Surgery 32 years experience
No: No. This type of operation has nothing to do with the penis.
