Testicle painfully sensitive after drainage and after surgery... anybody else have that?

Hi all... I had my left-testicle hydrocele drained a few months back, after which my left testicle became ultra sore/painful especially to touch. This puzzled my doctor. The sensitivity faded pretty quickly and was back to normal after a few days ("normal" meaning the occasional pain and soreness I had in that testicle for years with the hydrocele). The hydrocele also filled up pretty quickly after it was drained, and I wonder if it was the filling up that lessened the pain/soreness.

I had my surgery yesterday, so the fluid is gone. Now that pain/sensitivity is back in my left testicle, although not quite as intense as when the hydrocele was drained a few months back.

Anybody else experience this? I'm hoping the pain fades like last time, but it hasn't started to yet.

    Its going to hurt for a few weeks and the area around the incision will hurt/be sensitive longer than that. I had 3 of these procedures and it was the same all 3 times.

      I had back pain for like a week or so after surgery but i attributed that to just being in bed for so long after surgery. Now that i think about it though my bac has been bothersome since about the same time i got the hydrocele(still sore to this day nothing major, i had no issues pre hydrocele) not sure if there is any correlation though.
