Ok. I’ve never created an account to blog in my life, but feel compelled to share this story. I am 48 hours post vesectomy. This was quite a trip.
Had my appointment at 11 am on Thursday in Springfield Mo. Left side went smooth, but a lot of pain during the right side portion. Doc aside my vas deferens on that side was “burried”. My wife drive me home, which is 1 1/2 hours away. When I got home I noticed some severe swelling and discoloration. Within 6 hours at was at a local emergency room and my entire scrotum had swollen to the size on a small cantaloupe. Not kidding. The ER doc came in and I explained symptoms. He said very common and to let him see. I pulled down my pants and his jaw hit the floor. He asked name of my doctor and said he would call him immediately. It’s now about 7 pm. Doc comes back in and says he’s sending me by ambulance back to Springfield (where the initial procedure was performed) and my doctor would meet me there. I was transported and immediately sent in to have emergency surgery performed. By 1130 pm I was in the recovery room and met with my doctor. He said I had internal bleeding from the vasectomy, but it had stopped by the time he made a 3 inch incision into my scrotum. He said he could not get all of the blood out so he was leaving a drain port in.
I was released from the hospital the next day. The port is still in and draining and my entire groin is black, including my penis, inner thighs, buttocks, and up to my belly button. Today, 48 hours post vesectomy, I still have the port in. There is still blood draining out and my scrotum is about the size of small grapefruit. The pain is fairy bad, especially with movement.
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had experienced this and what their recovery time was like. Thank you and I hope all is well.
