I had a big hydrocele on my right testicle - surgery 2 weeks ago.
Advice: Get a good urolgoist and seek a second opinion. My first guy said not to do it, second guy recommended it but said it was up to me totally. Ask loads of questions about any concenrs you may have.
I was really concerned before the operation. However the recovery was a lot better than I expected - I was able to walk normal 3 days after operation - slight discomfort for 2-3 days - feet up and loads of ice - no pain killers.
The testicle is still swollen although not as bad as I expected and the scar is healing well.
I wanted the operation for my peace of mind - it was uncomfotable and also maybe impacted fertility.
Good doctor - straight forward op - quick recovery - will be scar tissue left over and bit of swelling for a while - bruising not too bad.
The thought of anybody cutting open my balls was so unappealing . However, I am happy I went ahead with the op
The doc told me they got over a litre of fluid. I couldn't believe it!
Best of luck!
