What to Expect: Recovering from Hydrocelectomy

Diet

You can eat and drink normally after hydrocelectomy. Social alcohol consumption is permitted 1-2 days after the procedure, provided it is done responsibly, of course.

Exercise and Gym

Men may return to the gym 2 weeks after hydrocelectomy. We advise no biking or any other type of exercise that involves the scrotum for 1 month after hydrocelectomy.

Showering

You may shower 24 hours after the surgery. We recommend patting the incision dry and avoiding baths for the first week.

Sex

You may resume sexual activity 2-3 weeks after hydrocele repair, as long as the scrotal incision is healing well.

Beach, Pool, Swimming

We advise against going to the beach or swimming in a pool, ocean, river, or lake for 3-4 weeks after hydrocele repair to avoid the risks of infection.

Wound Care and Stitches

No special wound care is needed. We use self-resorbing sutures (stitches) that typically fall off on their own 3-6 weeks after the procedure.

Travel after Hydrocelectomy 

Patients who are not from New York City can travel the same day or the next day after hydrocele repair.

Scrotal Size after Hydrocele Repair

For men with large hydroceles, the redundant scrotum typically shrinks within 3-6 months of the procedure. If scrotal redundancy is still of concern 6 months after hydrocelectomy, a scrotal reduction surgery may be undertaken.

Rezum procedure
by on Oct 24, 2018

I have been a patient of another Urologist for years, with no positive results. Then I learned about Dr. Alex Shteynshlyuger through a TV newscast. I immediately decided to have a consultation with him. Best decision I ever made!!! Dr. Alex performed the Rezum procedure and has literally changed my life. I highly recommend Dr. Alex and his staff to anyone who wants the most caring, capable and result oriented urological medical care. Thumbs up to Dr. Alex and staff!!!!!!!!!

Surgical Procedure

Dr Alex and his staff are through professionals in every sense of the word. From initial diagnosis to a period of evaluating and ruling out options, we decided upon a surgical solution, which appears for the most part to have corrected the issue. Thanks to Ana, and the staff, especially Dr. Alex for treating me so well. Best regards, Lee

"Cannot express how thankful I am I found Dr. Shtetnshlyuger. After undergoing surgery to correct a penile torsion I couldn't be happier with the results. A great doctor who is clearly good at what he does. With something as important as your private area, It's nice to be able to rest easy and know you are in good hands.." via HealthGrades.com 12/5/2017

Good Dr. who cares about his patients
by on Aug 18, 2017

Received circumcision from Dr. Shteynshlyuger. Dr. Shteynshlyuger is a very good specialist who cares for his patients. He was always concerned with my physical and mental comfort prior, during and post-operation. Dr. Alex is very thorough in his work to assess any problems and provide the necessary solution. Being that he has recently moved to a new location, this may afford for speedier appointments and easier flow of patients in and out. In addition, more personal space for waiting patients. If there was any con, it would be, the lack of space at his prior office and being able to see his patients at the appointed time, but a necessary sacrifice for good, careful work. I would recommend him as a very good doctor.

" He found my source of testicular pain that was missed by a Urologist from my insurance provider. Although I paid to go out of network- any price is less than testicular pain. He is generous with his time and will not short change anyone for care." via Vitals.com Posted on June 4th, 2017
