In adults, it consists of evacuating the fluid and ...Read more

Either way you should discuss it with a urologist. ...Read more

So, as long as you can cope with postoperative pain and swelling, you can have sex whenever you like, but common sense guides most reasonable men not to have sex for at least 1-2 weeks after surgery there. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

May Lead to a hernia: A communicating hydrocele allows free flow of abdominal fluid back and forth to the scrotal sac. It could also (depending on the size of the communication) allow intestines to travel throught the hydrocele channel to the scrotum. That would become a hernia. If the contents get stuck in the scrotum, that would be called an incarcerated hernia and is a medical emergency. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

These may resolve with time and observation only is prudent. If it is very large, or symptomatic, then surgical repair is usually performed, although needle drainage with or without sclerosis are used occasionally. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If during hydrocele surgery will occur damage of spermatic cord can repair this "mistake" (this complication) later or not?
Not likely: The likelihood of damage to the spermatic cord during surgical repair of hydrocele is low. In fact the risk from not repairing the abdominal wall defect, such as hernia with either bowel or omentum that becomes strangulated is a much more serious concern. If the surgery is done while the child is young and by a good pediatric surgeon, there should be an extremely low risk. Ask for a referral. ...Read more
