In brief: Common

Hello Mam,Testicular swelling is common after inguinal hernia surgery.
I assume you are asking for someone else.However,since this is still post-op,have him checked by the operating surgeon.Good luck.

In brief: Some size

discrepancy could be normal.
Difficult to say what is the exact cause without knowing more detail, but show it to your surgeon He will have a better answer for you.

In brief: Several things

This can be normal and possible that it might be a fluid collection.
If is alsobpossibk that the Venus that drain the testicje are encroached by mesh and the blood can't empty well. You can also have a hydrocele. Go see your doctor. He may do an ultrasound. Www.Drlugo.Com

In brief: May be normal

Firstly, it is normal to have testicles that are different sizes.
Reasons why one could appear to change size is fluid around it, that could be the result of a normal reaction after inguinal hernia repair. If its still bothering you or enlarged after six months, see your surgeon for an exam. Hope this helps!
