Hello,

It is normal to feel bruising and pain after hernia surgery this may last for a few weeks. My advice is to take it easy and you may apply cold compress on the area and in the scrotum to limit the inflammation.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Manuel C See IV, Urologist
