What can I expect after hernia surgery?

My partner is a 46 year old male who has had experienced erectional disfunction at times since he was about 25 years old at times. He recently found out that he has a hernia and swollen spermatic tubes and will need to have surgery; what is the general expectations after receiving surgery on a hernia restricting the spermatic tube? and what does it mean to have dialated vains in spermatic tube? Can this be a reason for erectional disfuction at times?

Welcome to HCM,
Erectional weakness in your Husband can be due to increase in blood sugar. He should get his blood sugar (F & PP) tested. And if it is normal, he can consult a Physician for prescription of drugs to correct erectional weakness. Your husband is probably suffering with Inguinal hernia, which requires surgical correction, meanwhile he can use hernia prevention belt. Inguinal hernia has no direct relation with erectile weakness of penis.
Wish your husband good health.
