I wasn't the normal situation, but just to let you know the scrotum can handle quite a bit of swelling. I had internal bleeding following my Orch, had to go to the ER that night with near football sized swelling.
After that, my swelling went down pretty rapidly. If it continues to swell, don't hesitate to contact your doctor.
I have pictures... But no one would want to see them!
