I had my vasectomy done by Dr. Ronald Weiss in Ottawa last year. Still in severe pain and taking numerous nerve drugs daily.
I was told by him that the risk was 1 in 10,000 risk of a chronic ache in the testicle for which a reversal is required. I read stuff on the internet beforehand, and here beforehand, and I honestly thought that some guys were exaggerating their pain and it must be really rare. I also thought ‘a doctor can’t lie about risks of surgery, with liability reasons and all.’
Well, I guess my suffering from PVPS is karma for not believing all the guys on here suffering.
See his website here: https://vasectomy.ca/patient-information/ with the BS 1 in 10,000 number.
Meanwhile his RateMD’s page has a bunch of guys with PVPS. Supposedly he’s done 40,000 vasectomies. If 1 in 10,000 were actually even remotely true, there would only be a maximum of 4 guys complaining here https://www.ratemds.com/doctor-ratings/98740/Dr-Ronald-Weiss-Ottawa-ON.html
Anyways, considering that I have suffered a financial hardship due to missed work, spending money on meds and travel to doctor’s appointments all of the time, I am seriously considering litigation, although not for medical malpractice. Medical malpractice is extremely hard to prove. Basically, if I bled to death during the vasectomy or ended up walking out with a vagina or something crazy like that, I might, just might be able to get something.
I have consulted with a lawyer about this, and his thinking is that since the CUA lists chronic pain at 1-14%, the AUA at 1-2%, that a claim for damages due to false advertising may actually be successful.
So, if you have been harmed by Dr. Weiss and are suffering from PVPS due to the lie that he sold you, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If this guy has done 40,000 vasectomies and 1-2% of us are suffering from severe pain, there should be at least 400-800 of us suffering in the dark.
