Hard/stiff flaccid penis since the surgery

I had laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair (mesh implant) surgery one week ago. Since the surgery, my penis has intermittnently become stiff/hard while still in its flaccid state. Is this a normal occurrence due to internal swelling from the surgery ? If so, when can I expect for this to subside?

Yes it is likely to be due to congestion of pelvic veins post surgery and shall subside of its own in 2-4 weeks.
Relax, take care
