Thickened epididymis with minimum peri testicular fluid in a 5 month old. Is there any thing to worry about ?

Hi, I have a 5 month old boy. He is been diagonised with Inflammatory pathology on his left.The epididymis has thickened on left side and suggested that there is a minimal peri testicular fluid seen on left side. The peadiatric surgeon suggest that we should go for Inj Advent 150mg IVBD for 5 days and Inj Amikacin 100Mg IVOD for 5 days. Can anyone let me know, whether is there anything of grave concern and whether the suggest treatment would cure my baby. .............. Worried Parent

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
mild fluid around the testis in the sac is quite common in case of mild infections. The surgeon has advised you correct treatment for your baby. This fluid will take some time to get absorbed after the infection is over. There are no long term problems.
