I went through three surgeries in two years; RP, then sling, then AUS. After all three I had scrotum swelling and tenderness and yes.....hung low. It took a good two to three months each time for the tenderness/soreness to subside. I am about three months after the AUS surgery where the bulb was implanted in the scrotum and it is just now to the point to where I have very little tenderness.
Sounds you are doing great otherwise. Don't be embarassed at all to bring things like this up. One of the list Mom's or was it Purgatory told me that many times the little things we go through are often the most helpful to some others. I was hesitant to post my one handed AUS activation technique but evidently it did create some interest.
