Answer

See the list below:

  • Routine follow-up care after operative repair of an inguinal hernia typically requires only one office visit or telephone consultation if the parents have reported no problems or complications. Scrotal swelling and bruising after surgery are common and may last for 1-3 weeks. Such signs do not indicate any complications; they represent normal postoperative changes.
