What causes swelling of the testis after hernia surgery?
You need to consult qualified General Surgeon.
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have undergone surgery for hernia repair 6 months back and now has doubt about size of the testis being reduced to 1/3 of it's original size.
I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1)Have you done Ultrasound Scanning of Scrotum before surgery and what was the size of testis before surgery?
It is common to get swelling of the testis after hernia surgery due to handling of testis during surgery .Normally it gets reduced to its original size over a period of 2-3 months .
It is likely that the present size of the testis is most likely to be normal size of your testis ..
Please consult qualified General Surgeon and get Ultrasound scanning of the scrotum done to know the size of the both the testicle .It will help you to compare the size of the both the testicles .
Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions I shall be happy to help you

Get Ultrasound Scanning done to confirm the size of testicles.
Thanks for follow up.
It could be result of post operative infection of the testicle
However I would suggest to get confirmed regarding the any structural damage to testicle by doing Ultrasound Scanning of the testicle.
The functioning of the particular testis may be normal irrespective of it being small.
It will not lead to any serious complication .and it is unlikely to get back to normal with medicines.
Thanks and Regards.
