A message of hope! Its been a while since I posted so I’ll give a brief recap of my story. I had zero groin pain prior to vasectomy after vas I developed severe PVPS. The pain started immediately and become worse as time progressed. I had pvps as bad as anyone, the pain was unrelenting and affected every aspect of my life. Pain was on both sides but the right was way worse than the left. Pain was in epi and radiated up into abdomen.
I researched all the options for relief and decided that I would rather try to rebuild than destroy more so I opted for a reversal. I figured if the vas didn’t work I could try other options, but the opposite is not the case. I had the reversal 6 ½ months after the original vas. Healing was not linear after reversal, and it took about 2 years to get full benefit from it I’m 5 ½ years from the original vas now. I’m not 100% but I am 95%. About once every couple months I still get a little pain but it is minor and goes away. I can do most everything I used to do, sudden jarring motion still affects me. An example I can ride a horse but a gallop hurts. I can ride a dirt bike but going over really rough ground fast hurts. Normal day to day activity or walking or even jogging I can do without pain. I can bike, hike, backpack, whitewater kayak, play tennis (with a jock) and live an active life.
Would of my pain resolved on its own without reversal? Maybe, maybe not. I had my pipes checked about a year ago after a little relapse and they are still wide open. Best advice I can give is give it time, but not too much time, research your options and once you have a knowledge base don’t obsess over it, you may have to force yourself to not look at this site but once a week. I know that’s easier said than done, but I do believe taking your mind and energy off it will be beneficial. I will monitor this post for a while and answer any questions.
Wishing you relief and God bless.
