After surgery, you may have slight pain in your groin for 3 to 6 weeks. Your scrotum and groin may be bruised and swollen. This will go away in 3 to 4 weeks.
You will probably be able to return to work or your normal routine in 2 to 3 days after microscopic surgery, depending on your job. If your job involves intense activity or lifting, it may take a week or more before you can go back. If you had an open surgery, it may take longer to return to work and your normal routines.
