Will water generated in testis after the surgery become normal by itself ?

Hello Doctor , My baby is 2.7 years of age and recently he had a surgery of Hydrocele . But with in a month his testis again filled with water. When I ask the doctor for this then he said most of the time the tissues in the testis generate water. And he did the Aspiration process and then he recommend to observe him for another 2-3 months. He said may be the tissue stop generating water after 2-3 months. So Doctor is this matter really not to worry about? Or this is a normal symptoms of after surgery? What do you say will it really get normal after two or three months? thanks B

hello
If the hydrocele was properly removed surgically, it cannot return as the space where the fluid accumulates is obliterated. They can and will return if the fluid was merely drained instead of having the hydrocele sac removed surgically.
it may take 2-3 sitting to drain the water.
Consult a physician to determine exactly what this swelling is. Recurring hydroceles are quite rare for the reasons stated above.
thanks for being in HCM forum

Hello MotherofSon, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
A hydrocele is a fluid-filled sac within the scrotum. Just take him to a General Surgeon and get him examined by him/her to rule out if there is Inguinal Hernia. They are usually not dangerous and are usually treated when they cause discomfort. In your Son's case, may be the sac was not closed Properly, Sclerosing that is thickening or hardening medications may be injected after aspiration to close off the opening. This helps prevent the future build up of fluid. Kindly take him for the follow up and Discuss the Treatment Plan with your Doctor.

I wish him Good Health.

6 years ago I got hit on my testes in a cricket match it causes swelling in my left testis. Few days later it became normal without any medicine. But in coming months I felt some swelled veins in my scrotum . I visited a surgeon next year and come to know that it is varicocel. The surgeon performed a small surgery to rectify the problem. For initial few days there was swelling in the left testis but gradually it reduces to even smaller than the right testis. My doctor told me that it will be normal with the course of time. Today even after 5 years of surgery my left testis is very small or shrinked. My sex life is good with proper erection and discharge . What will be the remedy and will it hamper my fertility if I will carry it as it is?

Hello, I'm an 80 year old man but this has been going on as long as I can remember. Sometimes, but not always, when I'm standing at the toilet waiting to urinate, as soon as the urine starts to flow, or a split second before, I feel a rush of warmth in my toes, both feet. I've looked for this on the web and a few people report it but apparently most men don't have this experience and don't know about it. I had surgery for hernia / hydrocele / undescended testicle when I was about 14 in case that has anything to do with it.
