Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

As such, after a period of two months of surgery, the discomfort in that region should not be related to it.

But, I will be able to help you better, if you can give me a little more details about your symptoms, like:

1- is there any swelling in the scrotum?
2- is there any burning sensation during urination or increased frequency of urination?
3-is there any redness or swelling in the groin region?
4- the exact site of discomfort and if you can describe the discomfort a little more.

Waiting for your reply.

Regards,
Dr. Ashish Verma

Hi XXXXXXX

First of all, thanks for answering my query. No, there is no swelling, burning sensation or any swelling that I can notice. I have had an open inguinal bilateral varicocele surgery. The nature of discomfort that i have been experiencing is more or less the same as in the immediate post-surgery days. It feels like as if the blood flow is being hindered and that blockage is causing a painful feeling which is like a beep-beep kind of a sensation. It is not consistent but happens abruptly and is then lost all by itself.

Please let me know if I need to provide you with any other information.

Regards,
XXXX

Hi XXXXXXX

There are quite a few possibilities, but all are rare.

1- there could be a nerve entrapment in the scar tissue that might be causing this. But in this pain will only be at specific movements.

2- could be sign of early recurrence. This will need doppler usg for confirmation.

3- at the cut end of vessels a small anurysm might had got formed or an arterio-venous fistula, to cause you this pulsating sensation.

In my opinion, you may wait for a few weeks and see. If this gets worse, see your surgeon for a clinical examination.
