i am sorry about you getting recurrent surgeries

the fact remains that hydrocele can recur
have you been evaluated for the cause of hydrocele?

i would suggest you try to
loose weight
avoid heavy exercises
avoid lifting heavy weights
test your kft and echocardiography

and meet a new surgeon

surgery is the only option available
for definitive treatment of hydrocele

best of luck
