ice the heck out of it. Take Ibuprofen and if you have access to Arnica, it's a supplement that helps inflamation, may be helpful. Yes just watch for fever. The right side of your sack looks better, it's the left side which makes me think there is a hematoma there. Those usually should reabsorb but it can take weeks. Are you sending these pics to your doc?

Yes, i sent pics to my doc, he said the only thing to do is to wait and be patience. I tried using ice but it doesn't provide me relief. I feed better sensation using hot pad.
I'm currently using Ketoprofene for pain but I'll try ipobrufen. I also use a cream called hirudoid as suggested by my doc.

But I see no improvements, pain is still very very high especially during night. I'm unable stand up, I have to use a bottle to piss on bed because going to the bathroom is too painful.
I can't think about having this pain for more days or even weeks.

Ice isn't just for pain. Ice prevents swelling and decreases bloodflow to a certain degree. Heat increases bloodflow to the area. Usually after surgery patients are advised to alternate between ice and heat so swelling doesn't get too bad. Ice didn't make my pain go away when I was healing because the cold and somewhat numb feeling hurts too, but it kept the swelling at bay which led to reduced pain.

I contacted again my surgeon and he insisted for me to stay totally in bed for another week to see improvements. He confirmed that it's a big hematoma.
He suggested to use heat pad because it helps the blood flow and healing process.
He wanted me to use ice just for the few days after surgery to help to stop the hemorragia.

Don't know if trying to alternate cold and hot or just put hot pad like he said, what do you suggest?

I want to update my situation and look for further help. Hematoma is still here and it's still big after about 4 weeks. I'm unable to feel the pump because it's inside the hematoma. I attach a pic. My surgeon said to wait more and make hot baths, but there are not noticeable improvements.
What do you think I can do?

Are you taking vitamins A and E to enhance healing? Vitamin E can work wonders.
You'll be okay eventually, but your surgeon is either incompetent or he let the resident do it.

Steve87, your last pic looks much, much better then the earlier ones. I WAS going to ask if you felt any pushing into your pelvic area when you went to bed, but this is not the case. I too went through an infection. The Drs. waited and even with all the things I told them about, and not being able to pump after 4+ weeks, he waited.
Lay down in bed for a week and see what happens, as someone suggested. Things are looking better, so it is a matter of waiting.
Use Tylenol (acetaminophen).
DOCUMENT, like you did here, with pictures, and email to your Dr., just in case. Do what he says, but make sure to tell him what happened when you did it.

I think this is going to eventually get better, and the swelling will lessen, although there may be some adhesions from all that blood stuck to the pump. Hopefully will eventually be useable. Can you try to massage the hematoma to help break it up so it may break down faster? May be able to loosen up anything stuck to the pump. I had that happening with my implant as well, and just trying to get at it and manipulate it has helped loosen things up. Doesn't look infected, just lots of blood product that has to now break down and get reabsorbed back into the body over time. May take you a few months to loosen that all up but keep at it daily.

Thanks for your replies. I'm trying to eat well and I'm taking vitamins.
At this time I have no signs of infection, but walking is still painful especially in some areas where hematoma puts pressure on the pump and the tubes.
I tried to put some pressure on the hematoma trying to break it but it's painful and my local doctor suggested me to not doing that and just wait.
I hate to hear that it will takes months to go away, I'm still unable to go to work..I am also worried that not pumping it for long time ( I don't really know when I will be able to start pumping it, for now it's totally impossible since I can't even feel the pump) will result in additional size loss.

Soak in a warm tub. You'd be surprised how much the scrotum softens up under warm water, maybe you can feel around for the pump and try to grasp hold of it while under water and give it a few pumps and then find the release valve, at least to start working on cycling. You can probably help break down the blood in the tub also, and it won't hurt as much soaking.
