Testicle Swollen Hydrocele
It's hard to comment on a surgery I wasn't present for

at 4 months, talk with your surgeon about whether you should have an ultrasound.

My son 4, 5 years old has diagnosed with communication hydrocele in testicles. No pain, only swollen not very. Is necessary surgery or we can wait?
Yes, . ...: Yes, please proceed with surgical correction since professional experience has proved such inborn communicating hydrocele will almost be certain to last forever if not closed by age of 1.

I am experiencing pain in my left testicle 8 months post hydrocele correction surgery, only at he back of testicle, what should I do?
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). In both cases testicle will remain larger than other side & may slowly diminish in size with time. This explains why your post surgery testis does not trans-illuminate. Don't be concerned. ...Read more

Hydrocele surgery 6mo ago. Testicle bigger than other. If it does NOT glow with transillumination test, is it just healing, or did hydcle return?
Hydrocele repair: After the surgeon has emptied the fluid filled sac, if he then carefully ties off the end connecting it to your abdominal cavity and cuts it out and discards it then it cannot refill. However, if he just tied a suture around the top (like a laundry bag) then there is a theoretical risk o refilling. You have to see the operative report, written after each operation, and it tells what he did. ...Read more
