So I just wanted to post here, that I made the tough choice to go for reversal after 13 months. I'm scheduled with Dr P in early March.
My pain isn't terrible, but it seems the punched in the nuts feeling and pressure should respond well to reversal. I feel the urge to defecate coming from my scrotum. I also have mild sexual issues post vas, probably pain-related, but maybe due to the blockage.
If nothing changes pain-wise, I'm okay with that, and I'll know I tried. The chance of making things worse is there, but hopefully small. The odd of improvement seem to be in my favor.
I also am done being surgically sterilized, this experiment is over. Condoms aren't that bad, plus I only have 5 years or so until nature takes its course and my wife cant get pg anymore.
It's a bit like Let's Make a Deal, the Monty Hall Problem. If you choose the first round, and are offered the choice to switch to the other door after the host opens a loser, you should always switch - your odds are better.
