Hi
This is not an uncommon occurrence after hernia surgery repair and the fluid will be absorbed in a few days
For now you can apply an ice pack to the scrotum keep it elevated with a small pillow or folded towel underneath but you'll just have to give it time to resolve
Let me know if you need any more information please
