Welcome to e health forum.

In most simple cases of hernia, the surgery is done laparoscopically, to reduce the morbidity post surgery. In your case 2 weeks is a very good time for the operated site to heal well after any procedure for Inguinal Hernia.

Hence Presence of soreness and discoloration in the scrotum needs to be examined again. Hence it would be recommended to consult your operating surgeon, and seek proper advice.
