Hi guys. I don’t post a lot, but I have finally found something that actually helps me. Quick recap, vasectomy 3 years ago, reversal almost 1 year ago. Significant increase in pelvic and ass pain after reversal. SA good, so not congestion. Tried many meds, vitamin etc. No relief. After seeing many guys talk about pelvic floor PT, I started looking into that path. Unfortunately, no pelvic floor PT within 100 miles of where I live. Instead I started to research pelvic pain and found an incredibly helpful and instructive book:. Pelvic pain, the ultimate cock block. A no bullshit guide to help you navigate through pelvic pain. By Dr. Susie Gronski. It just came out in 2017, but it is great. As you can see from the title, it is written for men. Easy to read and understand and gives non medicine solutions that have helped me. For those of you new to this concept of pelvic pain, here is a truncated list of what pelvic pain “feels” like according to her book:
Burning or sharp pain at the tip or base of penis
Pain during or after ejaculation
Pain during urination
Ache in rectum
Feeling pressure in the rectum
Pain while sitting
Pain between the scrotum and anus
Lower back pain
Pain during sex
She walks you through the anatomy of the pelvic floor. Causes of pelvic pain, she doesn’t specifically identity vasectomy, although #1 is pelvic surgery. She also has a very interesting chapter on your body on your mind. Basically how you can get in this negative feedback loop, have pain and feel helpless, even if the surrounding tissue has healed. Then she goes through how to train your brain to overcome the pain, when you need to take action and how to treat pelvic pain.
Hope this helps others as it has helped me. I purchased the Kindle version for like 10 bucks. Because it was so new, it wasn’t at any of our local libraries.
