Depends: Mostly on the size of the original hydrocele. If it was very large it will take longer. Even with moderate hydroceles it can take several months after surgerry for the scrotum to shrink back down. Patricio gargollo, md pediatric urology, dallas texas.

Variable: Should be much smaller immediately after surgery, but can take months to return to normal size and occasionally never.
