Hi I had Varicocele embolization 15 days ago. My left testicle is still swollen and am in a lot of pain. How much longer do I need to wait for recover?

In brief: Get an Ultrasound

com/preprintarticle.asp?id=169985 : "peri-procedural pain for up to 10 days. While a few studies have reported a 3%-3.7% incidence of epididymitis with embolization and one group reported a 10% risk of hematoma, multiple studies have demonstrated 0% risk of developing chronic scrotal pain." I had minor discomfort for a week. Suggest diagnostic ultrasound now to be safe.
