Glad to see I'm not alone. I had post vasectomy pain that was originally treated as epididymitis. After no success with antibiotics and other treatments, I ended up with a somewhat exploratory surgery in which the Dr performed a left epidiymectomy. This worked for several months until the same pain started on the right side. I'm convinced this was due to post vasectomy pain, this was all about 4-6 months after my vasectomy. I ended up being referred to a specialist in South Florida. He ended up performing a right sided neurolysis/denervation of the spermatic cord. This resolved the right sided testicular pain, however, about 6 months later I began having severe nerve pain around the area of the incision site. The pain continued to get worse and I was eventually referred from my urologist to a neurologist/pain management. This turned into escalating doses of opioids along with the realization that my 14 year career as a firefighter/paramedic was coming to an end. I never would have thought that a procedure as routine as a vasectomy would have led to all of this. My vasectomy was 3 years ago. My denervation procedure was a year and a half ago. I've also tried the cryoablation with no luck. Just yesterday tried an ilioinguinal/iliohypogastric nerve block. I try to stay optimistic, but after all this time I have serious doubts about any miracles. I would definitely do things differently if I could. I trusted a lot of dr's and their success rates. I think they assume when they don't hear back, that the surgery was a success. Whereas, in my case....I wasn't driving 6 hours away again for procedures that were a guessing game in a field that they know very little about. With the cryoablation, the Dr told me the chances of hitting the affected nerves were very slim, but that the good news was that I could keep coming back and having it done as many times as I wanted! Really?! How very big of you doc! Glad you're fine with me driving 6 hours, getting a hotel room and spending hundreds of dollars to keep having a go at it. The biggest part of all of this is the mental part of chronic pain and all that goes with that. I'm sure I'm not telling anyone anything they don't know if they're here for the same reason as me. Takes its toll on you, family, work, and friends. Good luck to everyone, and like I said. Glad to know I'm not alone.
