Hi XXXXXXX

Hydrocele is common condition in men. Your doctor has given you a course of hetrazan as that eliminates one of the causative factors and reduces eosinophilia. You can wait for the surgery till you finish the course of hetrazan given to you. After you finish, you may be required to do another blood test to confirm that you are healthy for anesthesia during surgery.

Hydrocele isnt an emergency and is an elective procedure. You will be taken up for surgery as and when you are fit for surgery.

Hope it answers your query.

Wish you Good Health

Hi,

Thanks for follow up.

Tight under wear for scrotal support is usually worn after the surgery. Wear well fitting under wear and not extra tight ones. Those will increase the heat in the testicles. So remember,well fitting for adequate support.

Wish you Good Health.
