I'll bet you're fine: Here's the score. At you're age, you're still learning about your body. Skin on the scrotum varies from loose to tight depending on the state of the dartos muscle -- the smooth muscle that automatically contracts when you take a cold shower -- and just how a guy is put together. You really can't grow new skin just by scratching. Talk with your physician next visit or talk with friends or even Dad. ...Read more

Here are some...: The best bet for answering your individual concerns is to ask your surgeon. But it has been known that the surgical wound takes 2-6 months to mature up to 75-85% and becomes fully mature in 2 yrs, but never back to the original 100%, probably at 95% at most.

Maybe...: During hernia repair, particularly in young boys, the vas deferens (tube that carries sperm) can be damaged and scar, preventing sperm passage. Rarely, in adults having this operation, the testiculat blood supply can be compromised and cause shrinkage or even loss of a testicle, which can affect fertility.
