Hi and thanks for the query,The swelling and discoloration of testicles and penis can occur after hernia repair and usually settles on its own but if the swelling is too much accompanied by pain with increasing trend you need to see your surgeon for followup. If you do not have much pain and bright red discoloration nothing to worry about but if you have these symptoms head towards your doctor to check if everything fine.
