How long does it take for my eggplant sized and colored testicles to return to normal. Could there be complications from this?

My grapefruit calmed down to lemons in about three days.
 
Really scary to not be able to find where the catheter goes in.

you have to give time for the fluid to drain out - would recommend keeping area elevated ( legs and hips up on pillows) when lying down and jockeyshorts to keep them snug ( and not bouncing around) - it took 4 days for mine to go back to pre-size.

all the best.
