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

What to do with 840 mililiters blood in abdomen after hernia surgery had hernia repair surgery on testicle was in bad pain 2 weeks later dr said blood floating around in abdomen

I'm assuming they did because you have an exact measure of 840 milliliters...

Sounds normal: One testicle almost always hangs lower than the other; this is normal in all men. (Most commonly the left is lower, but it can go either way.) I'm guessing it's always been that way for you and you're now just looking more closely. Hernia surgery is not likely to make much difference -- but even if it does, it's not a health concern. ...Read more

Depending how extensive the dissection, your testicle may not raise up any more. While i can understand your concern, this should have no major effect on your testicle function. Please discuss with your surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
