I’ve wanted to start this thread for a while now.
I read a publication about chronic scrotal pain (idiopathic, PVPS or otherwise) and its impact on quality of life.
The article stated IIRC 50% are unable to work and have difficulty with day to day activities.
I myself, fortunately am able to work and do a fair bit of activities (can’t run, gotta be careful with really strenuous stuff), but it still sucks to be this way. I miss my morning runs.
Anyways, if we can start a poll, I’m curious as to how many here are unable to work because of their vas, or if you’ve had to drop down to part time or something to that effect.
If that 50% figure applies to us PVPS guys, and taking the AUA’s 1-2% figure into account, that means anywhere from 2500-5000 men in the US alone are unable to work just from this ‘safe and simple procedure.’ Amazing.
