In brief: RU sure epididymis?

Not unusual for scrotum 2b tender 2 days after drain removal.
Wonder why you think epididymis is tender ; larger. Tunica vaginalis, which is wall of hydrocele is attached to epididymis and bound 2b tender for a while after surgery/drain removal. Best to discuss with your urologist.
