I had a vasectomy on Friday evening, I walked around for about an hour or so today, my scrotum has now swollen up, is this normal? Many thanks

Here are some...: The degree of bruise and swelling reflect personal nature of tissue reaction and professional proficiency. In general, post-surgical effect after uneventful vasectomy should maximize in 2-3 days; afterward, it should fade slowly. As long as following such a common path of evolution & resolution, time & patience are the "best medicine" to apply. More? Ask surgeon. ...Read more
