    Hey Orchid! Sorry for long delay, been off in Yosemite!

    Yes, its called a scrotal hematoma and common especially in adult larger breed neuters, post-op. Warm packing it usually helps, keeping him quiet too. Rarely vets have to put them back under anesthesia and do what called a scrotal ablation (remove the sack and flush out the blood) to relieve extreme cases of discomfort. Sorry again for long delay.

    Here's the easy answer: Call the vet that did it and ask.

    I did on the following Monday.

    However, this was originally posted on a Saturday and, knowing that sea-piner is a veterinarian, I thought I could get a quick answer by tagging him. Didn't realize he was on vacation, although he did give me a much more thorough answer than my own vet.
