In brief: Varicocele

Healing is fairly rapid.
2 months should be sufficient usually. Please return to your surgeon to see if there is recurrence or you need an abdominal CT to rule out a retroperineal process. If not satisfied then, a second opinion is fine.

In brief: A few more weeks

There is no set time frame for venous congestion to subside after surgery.
It all depends upn the amount of trauma to local tissues, amount of bleeding even when minute and the technique used.The best course after any surgery is to follow your surgeons advice and let them do post surgical assessment as indicated.

Urology

In brief: 2-4 months

It can take awhile for veins to subside.
You may always have a bulge also, depending on how big veins were pre-op. Key is that there's no blood flow through them. If you're concerned, talk with your surgeon and consider a scrotal ultrasound to look for venous blood flow.
