I need understanding to justifying putting my boys under the knife again. I’m not sure why a reversal would help me. My testicles don’t hurt, I don’t have pain during or after sex, and my epi isn’t engorged. Now…that being said, I’ve had a TON of systemic issues since the vasectomy but I still don’t understand how a reversal would fix that, unless the simple act of reducing the number immune complexes is beneficial. I took T injections for 4 months with minimal improvement. For me, that was a “reversal trial” and I didn’t benefit much from it.
I may still do it. If I could guarantee that I would remain patent for the rest of my life I’d do it. I’ve found enough literature that I simply don’t believe that vasectomy is healthy for the body. At this point, I think the most benefit from reversal is keeping the foreign proteins out of the body. Reversal would help but I don’t look at reversal as a permanent procedure. I view reversal as a 5 year window of fertility for one last baby. If I close up, personally and for the reasons I want reversal, closure would be a failure for me.
I think Marks is the man. If I were to reverse, he’s probably the only person on the planet that I would let do it. I was born and raised in Mesa, AZ and have many doctor friends in Tucson that are U of A alum. It would be an easy convenience and I don’t think there’s a better surgeon for pure reversals.
I should add that I discussed my systemic issues w/ Marks and he has seen reversal help these situations. However, its a huge unknown. I like being sterile for the benefits of being sterile, I’d prefer not to roll the dice on another surgery, and most importantly, I don’t like my odds that it’ll fix my issues.
