I had a vasectomy almost a month ago. I have been told I have a sperm granuloma, but not a very big one, whatever that means.
However, I am having pain in my groin and lower abdominal at times, I would say the pain is around a 1.5-3 on most days and sometimes throughout the day I don’t feel it at all. It seems like later in the day is when I feel it the most, but have an uncomfortable/tired feeling throughout the day. There also is rarely any pain in the testicles. I have been popping Ibuprofen for the last few weeks and I have been trying to ween myself off of it. When I started to do that it seemed like the pain got worse. I don’t know if my spermatic cord is swollen, causing the sperm granuloma to press against my nerves, or what is happening.
Has anyone else had this sort of pain? I will say that 2 days after my vasectomy I was on my feet more than I probably should have been, could that have caused a setback in my recovery? Additionally about a week ago I tried to lift something heavier than I should have and felt a burning sensation run across my groin for a couple hours. After some ice, rest, and Ibuprofen it seemed to go back to how it was before, but I fear that may have setback my recovery as well.
As of right now I am taking about 1200mg of Ibuprofen throughout the day. I’m now trying to get it down to 1000mg, but I don’t know if I should if something is swollen and needs the anti-inflammatory…just confused a little and worried that this could last forever. I’m really use to being active and for almost the last month I have been able to do nothing…
