Immediately following my surgery 2 years ago I felt tremendous pain. The doc, of course, said it was an infection and prescribed several antibiotics. He denied PVPS. Said he never heard of it.
2.5 years later I still feel pain and I now am having trouble with erections and sex drive. It is awful. The pain subsided about 15 months and I was ecstatic. Basically, I thought I just had a rough reaction and that it was now healed. Wrong. It has come back over the past couple weeks (after about 16 months of feeling pretty close to normal).
I hate this. If I had ever known anything like this could happen I would never have done it. Quick, painless, routine. That’s what I was told. BS. This is barbarism. If 1-2% of guys experience this, I should have been told that.
I am considering a reversal for pain relief and to see if my sex drive/erections get better. I’m pretty sure things will never be the same, but maybe they could get better?
Anyone out there have a similar experience with a successful, happy outcome?
