I had an inguinal hernia repair on the right hand side at the end of last year and I am aware of an aching feeling in the right hand side down to my right testicle which still seems swollen or heavy 7 weeks on. I have also suffered erectile problems on occasions since the repair. I am not overly alarmed as It is neither painful or uncomfortable, more an sensation I am aware of.

Are these common side effects this long after the procedure, or should I consult my GP?
