Hello and welcome to HCM.
Thank you for your query.
I have gone through your query, and your diagnosis was most probably a hydrocele
, a varicocele
or a simple cyst
After going through your query, I agree with all the steps that were taken to ensure proper draining and packing of the region, to avoid a recurrence. Do not worry, if the procedure was done by a trained and experienced doctor, ensuring proper drainage
and cleansing of the region, the condition should not recur.
As the wound is in a region which comes in constant contact with the surrounding regions, it might take more time to heal than usual. Do not worry about this, in my opinion, around 2-4 weeks might be sufficient for a successful recovery. Please make sure you regularly visit your doctor, for change in dressings and an examination to view the scope of improvement.
Although the bleeding should not take place for this long, this is not serious either. I would request you to re-visit your doctor with this complaint, so he/she can apply a dressing that will ensure quick recovery.
I hope you are not on any blood-thinning medications, or diagnosed with any conditions (eg. diabetes
), that could slow down the healing process. If so, please report these to your doctor, so he/she could act accordingly.
I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications at: http://doctor.healthcaremagic.com/doctors/dr-shoaib-khan/64581 . I would gladly help you.
