Although I did not experience swelling in thescrotum, at least not that I noticed, my understanding is that it's fairlly common. As is some black and blue coloring in the scrotum as well.
And from what I've read here, the best way to deal with it is to keep the scrotum raised, with a towel. And it will eventually go back to normal.
Now that I think about
it, while I didn't notice swelling, I did notice increased sensitivity in my testicles. Which lasted about
When the cath was removed, the nurse told me that while up to that point I was told to drink plenty of fluids, now that YHE catheter is out, I should cut back on fluids for a while. Which I did.
