    For anyone who had varicocele surgery..please help with some post surgery-info?


    Hello, I know that some of you guys on this forum had varicocele surgery performed whether it be embolization or open surgery..I was wondering if anyone had swelling around 2 weeks...my doctor said i now have LOCAL EDEMA...did anyone get this sort of complication after the surgery?? My testicles still feel really swollen and it seems enlarged with fluid inside...i need a scrotal support no matter what now...has anyone experienced this? thanks

    I had the embolization done and did'nt get any oedema which is fluid retention. I remember reading that is can be a consequence of varicocele surgery.

    Your post is a few days old now are you still experiencing oedema?

    I just had a left varicocelectomy by open surgery 5 days ago. For me, there has been some minor swelling near the incision site and the pain has been minimal. There might be some mild swelling in the scrotum but it is not much. It seems like the veins in my scrotum are larger than they were before the surgery and they don't disappear when I lie down? I guess it takes some time for them to regress after ligation? Anyone have any experience with that?

    I had the embolization... I didn't have much swelling, but the varicocele seems to have returned just the way it was after 3mos. I don't know if I should go back for a microsurgery or just live with it. I basically have "one good ball" because the left is so atrophied

    What do you mean by atrophied? Has it shrunk? or it doesnt work anymore?

    Mate if it was me I would have the surgery if the varicocele came back. Mine has shrunk a good deal. Fingers crossed it stays that way. If it comes back I'm having it litigated.
