After a varicocelectomy had a bad case of epididymitis. Explain

After a varicocelectomy I had a bad case of epididymitis and had no blood flow found in testicle . My doctor brought me back in for a check of the blood flow by nicking the testicle to test for healthy blood flow and a doppler scan as well. It has been just over a month, but it appears that my scrotum and testicle have healed together and is causing some pain and discomfort. Is this something that I need to have surgically corrected?

Hello , thanks for your query . The pain and discomfort you are experiencing post varicocelectomy is probably due to an post operative inflammation. There is nothing to worry about . I would suggest you to use an pain killer to relieve the pain . If it doesn't improve after a week of using it , then you can consult your doctor .
Thank you.
