    Standard procedure ,I had 2 hydrocelectomy's in 5 months as some fluid came back after the first one. Both times they sewed the nut to the inside of the scrotum it will soften up over time. You may notice some swelling for as long as 3-6 months as well.

    Hello Murph

    I have not had my operation yet (end of month ) but my urologist said they do that to keep the testicle from twisting and also from hanging low and "cow belling" which I took as swinging side to side like the ringer in a bell. I supose that could get painful like clacking the other testicle. Anyway you could ask at your next appointment. Let us know if he explains it better.

    I have another question: So 4 months after the surgery my testicle does not get to hang low (for example when it is warm) and the position of the testicle is awkward. I don't know if you had the same problem... If yes, did it get better with time?

      Yeah. The doc stitches it the the sack. Can take some time to get back to normal. I rubbed were it feels like it's attached and that seemed to kinda speed it up.. but yes with time it will go back to normal. Can't remember for sure but your looking at 6 to 8 months.
