User :   ??
Doctor :   Most patients have a general anaesthetic so that they are asleep during the operation
Doctor :   Sometimes the operation can be done by an injection of local anaesthetic in the back which will numb the area from the waist down.
Doctor :   A cut is made into the skin over the hydrocele. The liquid is emptied out. Some of it will be checked for the possible presence of bugs and some of it in order to exclude the presence of cancerous cells. The testicle is examined. If it is all right, the double coverings of the testicle are stitched up to stop the liquid building up again. If the testicle is diseased, it may be necessary to remove it. This will be discussed with you before the operation. Finally, the skin is stitched up. The operation is usually done as a day case
Doctor :   one or two days hospital stay is enough
