How long after hydrocele surgery will I return to normal?

About 2 wks. average. Sometimes a few days less, a few patients take longer. Good luck.
A week or two. For a transcrotal hydrocele repair in an adult, the usual recovery is 1-2 weeks. However, if the wound becomes infected or a hematoma develops, then the recovery can take much much longer. Ice packs, minimal activity and scrotal support will decrease recovery time somewhat.
