Is it normal to having swollen testicle after having surgery for hernia?

i had laproscopic surgery for a double hernia in Sept. 09. My left testicle is still very swollen. The surgeon said after the operation that it could take up to a year for the swelling to recede. Is this something that I should be seriously concerned about?

Hello,

Yes, it's normal to have testicular swelling or redness after the procedure. If it's troublesome to you then it can be reduced by apply cold compression and by wearing supportive underwear.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
