Just wondering if anyone has had a little boy undergo hydrocele surgery? I've spent a day researching this on the net, I was caught by surprise at the dr's office, and feel like I didn't ask enough questions.
So if you've gone through this what were your experiences were, how long did the surgery last? What is recovery like? How long does recovery take?

Following- my newborn son has it in his right testis at the moment and if it doesn't resolve at nine months of age then he might need surgery too. How old is your son?

My ds had a hydrocele. It went away on it's own. The gp never mentioned surgery but we did get an us of it.

Hi, our son had a hydrocele as newborn. At six week check up had gone down and was cleared by paed however went back up and down slightly over the next couple of years. One day when he was 4 years old his testes looked really swollen and took him to a pediatric urologist who did the surgery within the week and it was only a minor incision around his hip area and his recovery was fine. Discharged in a couple of hours and was wanting to play soccer within two days but had to try to keep him rested for the week. We were told they usually resolve themselves but if they don't the surgery is minor. Good luck.

Thanks for that @ Mum2FourSons
I just assumed the incision would be on the scrotum, but read that it can be around hip/lower tummy which seemed a little frightening.
We were told there would be some pain in the days after, obviously it wasn't anything too bad if you're little one was up and about so soon, that's a relief.
I feel so ridiculous freaking out about a minor day surgery, I just thought it would resolve itself, and did nothing about it, now I feel so guilty for not insisting we see a urologist sooner
