I would ask any potential person to ask many questions before having spermatic cord denervation. Especially regarding stats that make this look like a better treatment then is stated. Almost everyone will likely feel better following this treatment, however as I wasn’t aware, the nerves grow back and can be really pissed off. Any surveys regarding SCD needs to be done 1-2 years after to provide true results. My survey would have been really good at the 3 month mark and then awful from the 6 month mark onwards. This surgery really has virtually made me a cripple when it come to any sort of manual work/sex life - I just can’t do it without a great deal of pain afterwards.
I think Dr’s need to hear this and understand and warn patients that it can actually make you worse. I have raised my concerns with the dr who did my SCD whom I really like, and others need to as well. Just like vasectomy, although the stats look good and it can be a great outcome, there is also a downside which isn’t talked about as much. Please just make sure you get solid answers from the doctor that your condition is suitable for SCD.
This surgery seemed logical to me, as if you cut the nerves transmitting the signals from a painful area, your brain won’t detect them. The only problem with this is that your body tries to heal itself and the nerves will grow back. Now you have had a another surgery with more damage which your nerves will likely not like. In my opinion if you are having pain in your vas defenens following a vasectomy, this is not the surgery for you. If you are having pain in your testicles then it may be an option but make sure you get good answers from your surgeon before you hurt yourself even more.
