Follow: Your surgeon's instructions. Six weeks after hernia surgery, the strength of healing should allow most all normal activities. But there can still be some mild discomfort & swelling that can take longer to fully resolve as you keep getting stronger.

I just had hiatal hernia surgery 4 days and my penis and testicles are swollen and purplish is this normal after surgery?

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.

Why are my testicles swelling after my hernia surgery?

Post Hernia repair: When you have hernia repair there is trauma to the tissues and surrounding tissue. This trauma leads to swelling and even possibly some edema and pain. Post operative swelling and pain should subside quickly. This sounds normal so far.

Just had hernia surgery - 6 weeks ago. But lately, I've been feeling a little soreness in my right testicle.

Just had hernia surgery - 6 weeks ago. But lately, I've been feeling a little soreness in my right testicle.

Post op swelling: This may be part of normal post op recovery after hernia surgery, of course if its on the same side as the surgery. If your surgeon manipulated the cord and placed mesh some discomfort may be ok at 6 weeks. However if you have significant swelling, worsening pain or persistent bruising you should go to surgeon to be examined.
