In brief: Uncertain

Postoperative swelling is expected and initially a hydrocele may still look like it is present immediately after surgery.
You should see steady improvement and decrease in size over next couple of weeks to a month. Lots of activity or overexertion may slow your recovery. As always contact your surgeon with any questions or concerns.
