Swelling, etc.

Testicles
Inguinal hernias are holes in the abdominal wall at the same place where the blood vessels and nerves to the testicle travel. Trauma to these structures in the course of hernia repair can lead to temporary swelling and tenderness following surgery.

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

Post op swelling

Groin-testicles
This may be part of normal post op recovery after hernia surgery, of course if its on the same side as the surgery. If your surgeon manipulated the cord and placed mesh some discomfort may be OK at 6 weeks. However if you have significant swelling, worsening pain or persistent bruising you should go to surgeon to be examined.

Dr. Lane C. Childs answered:

2 months after bilateral laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery, my right testicle hangs higher than left, and spermatic cord is still sore, normal?

Yes

Hernia_repair
What you describe is not unusual. It is normal for one testis to hang a bit lower than its mate. You are likely the same as you were prior to surgery, but now you are focused and more aware of your anatomy. The cord tenderness will be resolving soon.

laparoscopic double inguinal hernia surgery 4 1/2 months ago still real sore right testicle. recently start feel discomfort groin& pubic area can do?

Give it more time

Testicles
Sometimes the blood supply to the testicle is slightly compromised due to swelling, etc. Good scrotal support, non steroidal medication is what is needed. And more time.

How do I reduce soreness from a hernia surgery?

Follow the direction

Hernia_repair
of your surgeon. Local heat can help. Walk & move around some, rest when painful. Use prescribed pain medications. Ask your surgeon about using Ibuprofen. If the prescribed medication is not working contact your surgeon. Pain improves with time after surgery.

What does it mean if I'm having pain/soreness following hernia surgery?

Depends how long.

Pain
This would depend on how long after the surgery you mean. Also the type of hernia surgery. In the first few weeks after any hernia surgery, soreness is expected. Beyond a month, most of that should be diminishing quite a bit. If the trend after a few weeks is not one of improvement, your surgeon needs to know about it.

Call Surgeons Office

We have many alternatives to narcotic pain medication to help control postop pain, such as ice packs, NSAIDS (ibuprofen, naproxen), and acetaminophen. If that doesn't work, you may need a higher narcotic dose. Please check with your surgeon--they will likely offer these options. Rest assured, the pain will lessen every day!
