Here are some ...: Are you sure she has hydrocele which solely occur inside men's scrotum? There has been no known oral remedy for its relief but surgery — hydrocelectomy if needed. Yet, it's known nothing like using any medicine is free but always comes with a price, i.e., possible, unpredictable, certain side effects in few if its user. Yet, hydrocele with no significant mental/physical handup may need NO surgery. ...Read more

How we can find if spermatic cord are damaged during hydrocele surgery?? My son 5years old had an operation for comunication hydrocele in both sides
Not before puberty: Damage to spermatic cords is unlikely if surgery was performed by surgical expert, especially if s/he is pediatric urologist or surgeon. U could review the operation report to see if note made of cuting vas during surgery. Or check pathology report of hydrocele specimen if it was sent for?portion of vas. Otherwise, you would need to wait till after puberty 2C if sperm present in ejaculated semen. ...Read more
I feel thick tissue benith the cut made for left side hydrocele surgery 2 month back.left testicle looks stuck leftward. Minld pain nd discomfort there?
Post-op change: Most likely, unless "thick tissue" is expanding. Mild pain & discomfort not unusual, & should settle down with time. In USA anything related to this kind of surgery is included in global fee charged for original surgery for 3 months after operation. Testicle position may remain changed. ...Read more

16 month old boy, diagnosed with hydrocele (swelling in groin, left side). No other symptoms. Does he need surgery? Tests? What symptoms look for?
What are the short-term & long-term side effects from surgical excision of the hydrocele?
What are the risks&probabilities of the surgical incision?
Good day doctor, please I got operate on hydrocele on the right side and after the surgery, it get swelling again like egg. Please how many days or month will everything return to it to its normal size?
Uncertain: Postoperative swelling is expected and initially a hydrocele may still look like it is present immediately after surgery. You should see steady improvement and decrease in size over next couple of weeks to a month. Lots of activity or overexertion may slow your recovery. As always contact your surgeon with any questions or concerns. ...Read more
1. I had TORTION OF TESTIS in left side in 2011and left was not removed. Dr. told that the left is ATROPHY. Is there any problem for me later.
2. HYDROCELE in right side and had surgery. Operation made 2 weeks ago.
If there is any future probl
No: Sadly not usually. You can drain a hydrocele with a needle in the office but the recurrence rate is very high. In surgery the hydrocele "sac" where the fluid sits is surgically removed so it is very rare for the fluid to return after surgery. Best of luck.

See your MD: After a hydrocele repair there is a significant amount of swelling which can appear like the hydrocele is still present. This can happen after your return to normal activity. Please call your surgeon to make sure everything is normal. The post-surgical swelling should resolve over time. ...Read more
Likely anxiety: There should be no structural or functional reason or lack of ejaculation. Most of ejaculate comes from prostate gland, seminal vesicles & pre-cum from Cowper's gland. Testicles provide sperm for ejaculate. You presumably have another testis on the other side to hydrocele if you thought vas on hydrocele side had been damaged by surgery. Vas damage is 99.9% unlikely & does not affect ejaculation. ...Read more
About 1 week: Surgeon should tell or have told you if you have already had surgery. Compressive dressing is best. Ice pack may help. Should be on ibuprofen &/or Tylenol (acetaminophen) both as pain killer & anti-inflammatory agent. Also, depends upon your job. More time if you are on your feet & active all the time. Good Luck ...Read more

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
9 days since hydrocele surgery. I think I'm having a speedy recovery. Very minimal discomfort. Can I masturbate? Don't want to ruin surgery.
My 15 month old was just diagnosed with a hydrocele. Is there still a chance it will resolve without surgery? It seems to be getting smaller.
Probably not: Hydroceles in young babies often do not communicate with the abdominal cavity, & they usually resolve in the first few months of life. Hydroceles found after the first birthday connote communication with the abdominal cavity & usually do no resolve spontaneously. Surgery is usually needed. That said, one can watch a hydrocele for quite some time seeing what will happen without bad consequence. ...Read more
