Hydrocoele repair requires the drainage of your fluid collection surrounding the testicle, along with repair of your defect within the fluid sac around the testicle to avoid even further buildup of fluid.

Exactly how is Hydrocoele Repair carried out?

Under a general anaesthetic, a cut is made in the scrotum and the fluid is drained. The sac of the hydrocoele is sometimes tied upon itself or perhaps flipped inside-out in order to prevent recurrence. after any bleeding points are cauterised, the incision will be closed with absorbable stitching.

What should I do following my procedure and when can I go back to work/resume normal activities?
You will not be able to drive for 24 hours after your anaesthetic, so you will need someone to come and collect you. You can resume most normal activities the following day but we would recommend that you do not drive your car for 2 days and refrain from sporting activities for 2 weeks.

The stitches will dissolve in time. You may find it more comfortable to wear brief underpants to support the scrotum rather than boxer shorts.
