For what length of time do post-traumatic hydroceles last after an inguinal hernia repair operation?

In brief: Weeks to months

Usually a fluid collection in the scrotum after inguinal hernia repair is self limited, and should be gone by six months.
It should definitely be near its final state by 12 months. If not, and its causing problems, it may need to be operated on. Hope this helps.
