User Profile
My husband had Inguinal hernia repair 3 weeks ago and is still complaining of testicular discomfort, enlargement and thick squishiness. He also has great sensitivity at the base of the penis and back around the kidneys. He is a worrier but isn't scheduled to see the doctor for 3 more weeks. Thanks Worried wife!

Welcome to e health forum.

It is not possible to ascertain the possible cause of your husbands symptoms based on the description provided here.

The persistent symptoms that you have mentioned, are unusual after 3 weeks post surgery.

Your husband should likely contact his surgeon at the earliest for a examination and proper assessment of his symptoms.
