Hey, @Robert. Hope your plan works out, you never know unless you try.
Far as I’m concerned, this hip pain thing is a pretty wide topic far as what causes this kind of stuff. I think there’s many way to end up with this stuff post vas, reversal, etc.
I’ve heard several “top vas doc’s” opinions on this, including in my case, and they vary all over the board. From nerve damage, to lower back problems, etc, etc. I’ve heard some interesting, and wacked ideas from some surprising people many years ago.
I used to be pretty lost myself far as what causes hip pain, sciatica, lower buttox pain, hamstring pain, etc. Like I said above, I think there’s many ways to end up with anything like we are talking about post vas, reversal, etc.
I had an obstruction type varicocele corrective procedure, and within a matter of 5-7~ days my pains as I described above got much worse, and carried on for many months, and then some. The procedure didn’t even take place in my scrotom. There were no knives, no cutting, etc.
I did manage to make quite a bit of progress over the years far as getting better after I was made worse, but I still have issues because of it, and I still regret it. I had that procedure in december 2011.
One key thing regarding my story is, I had an obstruction type varicocele corrective procedure, which caused vascular congestion, and it caused me so much pain, grief, etc.
Bottom line, any doc, or anyone that says all pains like we are talking about in this thread are purely neuropathic, or related to the lower back are full of it. If vascular congestion caused me so much pain, and grief, so could spermatic congestion, amongst other things. Unfortunately, I proved this on myself, and learned the hard way.
Perhaps I do have some nerve abnormally because I do have a permanent lower back injury. I also had a dormant pre-existing scrotal pain condition prior to the vas as well. And while I generally disagree, beleive me when I say, docs could easily blame all my problems on something other than my vasectomy.
Keep trying @Robert, perhaps you will narrow things down eventually.
