Had hydrocele surgery June 1. More comfortable than prior to surgery but testicle still a little more 2x than other one. Does not illuminate?
Normal finding: Part of hydrocele always remains after hydrocele surgery. Fluid is drained & hydrocele sac is inverted & sewn together behind testis (Bottle procedure); some surgeons roll up hydrocele sac (Lord procedure).
