Had robotic large indirect right inguinal hernia with extension into the scrotum repair over 6 weeks ago. No pain or problems. Feeling with my fingers deeply into the repaired right side while lying down I can feel a firmed area low & behind the testicles on the right side. Compared to the left side which is soft. Nothing is felt above the base of the penis. When I am standing & walking it seems to disappear. I am wondering if I am feeling the repaired hernia behind the non tension opening & ProGrip mesh? Is this to be expected?
Thank you Dr Towfigh. Do not think it was filling space as hernia the size of a small cantaloupe went into the scrotum. That has never filled what I can fell is deep into the body at base of penis & behind the scrotum which remains soft.
