After consulting with several of my friends who’ve had vasectomies and zero issues, I had one done back in March of 2017 at the age of 47. My recovery was terrible. I was barely able to make it to the bathroom from my bed for the first two weeks. One time I woke up on the floor after passing out.
After that I was treated to random stabbing pains and transitory burning aches for next 3-4 months. Eventually things settled down to the state they’ve been in for a while. My right testicle is pretty normal and rarely gives me problems but the left one is always tender to the touch and flares up to a constant burning every couple weeks. The epididymis becomes raw from top to bottom and orgasm is painful.
At first I thought there were affordable reversal options, but it seems those doctors are only interested in couples looking to conceive. I signed up here to get some guidance on what my next steps should be and what doctors I should talk to. I’m going through a rough patch financially so I’m hoping it’s something I can afford before time makes things more complicated.
