All my research has lead me to some questions that I don’t have good answers to…
- Most of us on here say that we would not do a vas again or would recommend others not to get one, but is that simply because of our outcomes or due to our increased knowledge?
- Porn stars and athletes get vasectomies and their livelihood depends on physical performance. If getting a vas was truly a terrible idea, wouldn’t these people pass?
- If most us wouldn’t get a vas if we could go back in time, then why not simply try for a reversal? Is recovery that bad? Is there a significant risk of making things worse? Is the $10,000 a large hurdle?
- What’s life like after a reversal if everything goes well (back to 99% pre-vas)? What are the odds of everything going well? Once you’re back to 99% or whatever it is, it that as permanent as if you never had a vas, or is there a risk of stuff closing back up? What happens if stuff closes back up…are the symptoms similar to if you still had a vas?
- What significant complications are there with a reversal? I haven’t seen a lot of people posting on here about reversal pain, but maybe that’s just because the % of people in that situation is much smaller.
My symptoms aren’t really terrible right now and my simplistic brain says let’s just go back to where I was before by doing a reversal, but I know the decision/process isn’t that easy. It’s tough to not think it’s that easy because of the number of people you see on trying to conceive groups talking about life after a reversal…but that group think mentality is also what lead me here, so I’m trying to act like I’ve learned my lesson. Thanks for any insight you can provide.
