99 days post vasectomy:
Maybe I should have waited until tomorrow to post this so I could be at 100 days. Things have improved, but I’m not at 100%. I would say the new balls are gone. There’s a small bump/knot on the left side where the newball used to be and something else feels a bit swollen/tender to the touch. There seems to be two swollen things on the right side or maybe just one larger swollen thing. Not sure if the swollen things are my epi or something else. I’ve been able to resume my normal activities without my pain holding me back. I haven’t tried running because it’s cold out, but I suspect I’ll be able to do that with supportive underwear. All in all, my pain is manageable and only an issue if clothing is bunched up in the area or if there’s pressure on my sack. If I had to give it a percentage, I’d say I’m ~90% recovered. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is as good as I get and if don’t get any worse I’d say this is manageable. My condition is far from ideal and I’d easily drop money for a reversal if it was guaranteed to make me better, but that guarantee doesn’t exist. I wish I had never gotten a vas, but my life doesn’t seem potentially ruined anymore…fingers crossed things only get better from here.
Thanks to everyone on here for your help the past 99 days. There were some really dark days and you guys helped me keep my sanity as much as possible. I might update this thread if things improve or if people have questions, but I wanted to provide this update to give back as much as I can. I don’t think anything really helped me too much other than time and maybe supportive underwear and maybe 4 weeks of 600mg of ibuprofen a day (I honestly don’t think this did anything, but I wanted to try). Good luck to those of you still looking for improvement!
