My both scortums are mildly red/pink after open mesh hernia surgery (inguinal) of right side. Is this normal (it was large hernia occupying scortum)?

In brief: W/in expectations

There can be swelling more than you might expect after this kind of operation.
Scrotal pain is what to watch for. Bruising is also common, may even get black and blue about the base of the penis. Should get better toward the end of the week after.

In brief: Probably ok

Sounds typical, but you should call your surgeon or whoever is covering.
There are many factors involved that cannot be sorted out in this forum.
