Tissue edema of rest: In "bottle" hydrocele repair the sac is turned inside out and sutured behind testis. This can become swollen and hard and take a while to soften up. Same with coiled remaining sac in the "lord repair. Sometimes hydrocele can recur. Be patient, most cases slowly resolve with time, which can vary greatly.
