I have a question about post prostate surgery recovery

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Nope

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

It has been 11 days since surgery and my scrotal sac is VERY VERY swollen

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

7 days

Thank you

It is an expected symptom after such surgery as reactionary edema develops in scrotal sac but dissolves within about 2 to 3 weeks, if it becomes painful or red and inflamed then do see your doctor. Use scrotal support.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
