@vasregret inspired me to do a similar post for my Bilateral orchiectomy. As has been previously discussed- so far so good. No regrets. I decided to go bilateral in one operation, despite advice to do one at a time, under the reasoning that since both my nuts were killing me even if i did one and it didnt work thats no guarantee the other would not work, and vice versa- if it did work thats no guarantee the other would or wouldnt work. So i figured what the hell lets just go all in (or all out!). Another thing, i did get a cord block before which provided no relief of pain. Because of this my doctor was more hesitant to do the procedure. He said that the chances of it successfully reducing pain dramatically decreases if no response to cord block. I listened to my gut though and just knew it would work since all my pain was coming from balls. Remove balls-remove pain was my logic.
So less than 72 hours post op i no longer have nut or cord pain. Only pain felt is tenderness and soreness from incisions and around my pelvis/groin. After a couple days doctors recommend walking a bit to get blood flowing. Just got back from a walk around the neighborhood and it felt pretty good. After my reversal it took me a couple months to do the same walk and my balls were screaming at me the entire time. I felt zero ball pain/no phantom pain. It was a very surreal experience. Only discomfort was groin soreness. Another thing is my scrotum has some swelling. Its kinda wierd cause they look like i still have balls but shrunk down and more elongated. Now i will say the soreness and tenderness from my incisions is no walk in the park but its a good pain though that i know will subside. In fact it already has a little. Night before last was rough trying to sleep in comfortable position but last night was a bit better. SOOO nice to experience non chronic pain healing as the days go by. I will continue to post as days, weeks, months go by. The 20th i have my first post op appt and first T injection.
