1 doctor agrees

In brief: 1 - 3 weeks

Depends upon size of hydroceles and age of patient.
Young prepubertal boys should recover within a week. Recovery can be much longer after puberty and depends upon size of hydroceles and postoperative activity and use or not of a compression dressing.

In brief: 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.
