What to do with 840 mililiters blood in abdomen after hernia surgery had hernia repair surgery on testicle was in bad pain 2 weeks later dr said blood floating around in abdomen
Many: Many times the blood you are talking about is bodily fluids tinged with blood. Sometimes you don't even have to drain that fluid. I'm assuming they did because you have an exact measure of 840 milliliters... Either way many times a collection of bodily fluids or even frank blood as long as the bleeding stopped is left alone for your body to deal with. ...Read more
Sounds normal: One testicle almost always hangs lower than the other; this is normal in all men. (Most commonly the left is lower, but it can go either way.) I'm guessing it's always been that way for you and you're now just looking more closely. Hernia surgery is not likely to make much difference -- but even if it does, it's not a health concern. ...Read more

After open inguinal hernia surgery 3 weeks ago on the left side, my left testicle doesn't raise up anymore. It was normal before, worried.
Cremaster Muscle: The vas and blood vessels to the testicle are covered by a muscle layer that has to be divided when performing an open inguinal hernia repair, called the cremaster muscle. Depending how extensive the dissection, your testicle may not raise up any more. While I can understand your concern, this should have no major effect on your testicle function. Please discuss with your surgeon. ...Read more

I just had hiatal hernia surgery 4 days and my penis and testicles are swollen and purplish is this normal after surgery?
Not likely: Just to clarify, did you have a hiatal hernia or inguinal hernia repair. Inguinal hernias are in the groin and their repair laparoscopically can definitely result in bruising and swelling of the penis and scrotum. During hiatal hernia repair, no good reason for your symptoms. If you had a catheter in your bladder during surgery then this could possibly cause the swelling and bruising. ...Read more

Suffer retractile testicles after inguinal hernia surgery. Will this go away or stay like this forever? It's been 2.5 months. Any tips to make it go?
Should stop: I admit I don't have any research to quote you, but in my experience this somewhat atypical problem should be self limited. You could try applying warm heat to the scrotum, in the privacy of your own home, of course. This would cause the cremasteric muscles to relax to drop the testicles away from the groin. It's worth a shot. Good luck. ...Read more
