Has anyone had pain from a sperm granuloma? I had a vasectomy about 5 weeks ago and have been in pain since about day 4 or 5. There have been ups and downs and sometimes I feel fine and then other times I get a pain in the left groin near my testicle. I have also had pain that went all across my lower abdominal area and groin. At day 7 I went to the urologist that performed my vasectomy and he felt around down there and said I probably just had some inflammation in the spermatic cord and sometimes things get compressed causing issues. So he gave me Ibuprofen and sent me home. Day 9 I was feeling a lot better than I had been, but I was still having pain. So I felt down where the vas site was and I felt something like a small bundle of wires in a knot, so I freaked out. Called the urologist on call where I had my vas done and they said to continue with the high does of Ibuprofen and take some warm baths as they thought it could possibly be a sperm granuloma. Continued to take the medicine and then in a few days I still was anxious about the discomfort/pain (not as bad), but still enough that I felt I should call back. The nurse told me I just need to give it time and wait for my 6 week check-up.
I didn’t want to wait, so I decided to seek a second opinion. I went to a different urologist and had him examine me. He said that he felt a small granuloma, but he said that it should absorb over time, or not. He thought that the pain I was feeling was due to the granuloma rubbing against a nerve and compressing it. He also thought that the pain should go away over the next 4-6 weeks post vas. I am almost at the 6 week timeframe.
Has anyone else had any type of experience like this, with a granuloma causing pain? And if so, what was the pain like and did it get better.
