Post-operative recommendations for an Hydrocele Treatment

The day of the surgery
The first day, stay in complete rest.
The day after surgery
The day after the surgery and for the first week, you can walk, but go gradually by alternating periods of activity of 30 minutes with periods of rest. Wear a fitted underwear day and night for more comfort.
The week following the surgery
If a drain has been put in place, it is removed in the first postoperative days; pain near the incision area is usually minimal and temporary.

During the first week, avoid forcing and doing activities that cause pain.

Apply an ice pack with a towel over your scrotum for 20 minutes, every hour, depending on your comfort. Cold helps reduce swelling and relieve pain.
Two weeks after surgery
Do not do any sport for 15 days.
Wait about 15 days before resuming sexual activity.
Try to avoid using the stairs.
Avoid constipation.
2 months after surgery
A control appointment is scheduled two months after the intervention.

    Dr. Marois is a urologist who is not a member of the Régie d’Assurance Maladie du Québec (RAMQ). As such, the clinic can not claim the RAMQ for the payment of his services. If you consult Dr Marois, you must pay for the services rendered.

    Cancellation of appointment:

    To ensure the smooth running of the clinic and a minimum of courtesy towards other patients and our staff, we ask you to notify us 48 hours in advance for the cancellation of a consultation, 5 working days in advance for a surgery at the office and 21 working days in advance for a major surgery. If these deadlines are not respected, a cancellation fee of 50% of the service will be charged.

    Change of appointment:

    We understand that events occur, so we ask you to provide us with at least a 24-hour notice for any change in their appointment; we will be happy to accommodate you, the best we can. However, if you fail to inform us within this timeframe or do not show up, we will charge a $ 100 fee.

    Thank you for your understanding.
