What will the doctors do during surgery to fix my hydrocele?

See below: During repair of a hydrocele, the scotum is incised and the hydrocele sac incised. All the hydrocele fluid is evacuated.

For hydrocele doc prescribed 10days ceftriaxone im then 10d aloe im 20d serratiopeptidase &  vite, now he talks about surgery. Is it mandatory?

No: Hydrocele is extra fluid around the testicle. Assuming a scrotal ultrasound has shown no underlying testicular pathology (infection or cancer) as a cause, it can be watched or treated, as you prefer. Treatment by needle aspiration of fluid is only temporary, surgical resection is more permanent. ...Read more

Good day doctor, please i got operate on hydrocele on the right side and after the surgery, it get swelling again like egg..Please how many days or month will everything return to it to it's normal size?

Uncertain: Postoperative swelling is expected and initially a hydrocele may still look like it is present immediately after surgery. You should see steady improvement and decrease in size over next couple of weeks to a month. Lots of activity or overexertion may slow your recovery. As always contact your surgeon with any questions or concerns. ...Read more

Nonetheless, without a direct look and awareness about how surgery was done and how your general health composure, it is hard to give 100% guaranty; one has to exercise commonsense for daily living; be conservative! ...Read more

Can laparoscopic surgery be done on a hydrocele i want answer yes or no please say answer doctor ?

No: Laparoscopic surgery is performed for intra-abdominal conditions. Hydroceles are only skin deep in scrotum ; laparscopic instruments are > 1 foot long. Thus senseless to use laparoscopes for hydrocele surgery. Yes could be done, but would question sanity of any surgeon attemtping to complicate such a straightforward ; simple operation. ...Read more
