It's been 17 days since the inguinal hernia surgery, but the hernia still feels like a water ball on the side of the testicle. my doctor said it will go away in the future. will it take longer to heal? this is a problem for me. please explain to me?

sometimes a little blood collects in the area called hematoma and is gradually absorbed . If the wound is clean it will heal normally. For the swelling you can use a heating pad for 10mts three times a day. I think you will be OK
