    How can swelling in the testicle be treated?

Posted on Fri, 30 Jun 2017 in Digestion and Bowels
Question: About 25 days ago I ask about Hydroceles. Dr. XXXXXXX rendered a very helpful response.Then on May 17, 2017 I had the operation to
fix the right side of my scrotum/testicle. The operation went well to include no pain following the operation. However, my right testicle is still swelled to about the size of a
Tennis ball. I have and continue to apply an ice pack 3-4 times per day. [How long should
my right testes remain enlarged?] I have no fever, etc. Also, how limited should my activities be and for how long? I will be very grateful for a response. Thank You. XXXXXXX
