24 hours post-reversal now.
I can certainly echo the thoughts of others on here when I say that ICVR is absolutely first rate. Not sure how they could have possibly made me or my wife more comfortable or confident.
The procedure itself was painless. Prick in the hand for the IV, and then lights out until it was over.
Dr. Marks said my left side (worse side) was full of fluid and oozed and oozed and when he thought it was done and went to reconnect it, it oozed some more. He also said the vas was too low on that side, and he was pretty sure congestion was my problem on that side. The right side had less fluid, but had a good sized granuloma that he thought might have been leaking. He gave me good pictures of the big globs of tissue he removed and he put me on prednisone right away because the tissue in there looked so inflamed.
Drove back from Tucson to Phoenix right after (after stopping for In-N-Out on the way home).
Spent the rest of the day playing xbox and icing.
Woke up this morning feeling ok, but then I went to get in the shower and I actually passed out cold on the floor, which is a first for me. Wife called Dr. Marks and his first question was, “Did he look at it?” Ha. So he wasn’t too concerned.
Pain is nothing I’m not used to at this point, just achy and sore and bruised from surgery. All the ice makes it hard to tell if it feels different or not, but there is definitely a sensation of lightness down there that I imagine is from losing all that built up fluid.
I’ll get the pics uploaded soon for posterity.
