Thanks for your query.Are you operated on Left side?You had undergone Laproscopic Partial Nephrectomy and have noticed swelling of the scrotum which is filled with jelly like fluid.Mostly this is due to collection of a lymphatic fluid called as lymphocele.Once the collateral lymph circulation develops which takes one or two months This will subside gradually
