This may be a better place for some to post rather than hijack anyone’s thread. I don’t care what gets posted here, as long as it’s relevant to post vasectomy pain.
@Jpw, You asked if I was all good after having gone through with two reversals. Well, incase you missed it, I had a third procedure as well.
Prior to my vasectomy, I had a pre existing condition. My condition was a varicocele on my left side, it resides behind my left boy. It gave me trouble (pain) several years prior to the vasectomy. It had been dormant for years prior to my vasectomy (pain wise).
I would tell anyone that my vasectomy agrivated my varicocele. It may have hypersensitized the nerves, perhaps it was the change in anatomy. I’m really not sure what happened.
Far as reversal helping me pain wise, I haven’t had certain kinds of pains since I had my first reversal. I had a redo reversal because my first one was a failure of sorts far as getting the pipes flowing.
Nobody knew what was up with me back 5+ years ago far as, is it the varicocele causing me pain, or is it inflamed epididymal tube.
My redo was a success, but a bit inconclusive far as confirming what the problem was. Best educated guess was, varicocele was the biggest problem.
I choose to have a varicocele embolization procedure after my redo reversal. I was tired of being hacked on, and being hacked on is risky. I thought I could outsmart the knife.
Bottom line is, the procedure caused back pressure in my veins down there, and I still have a varicocele. I wish I had never followed through with it as it made me a bit worse, and switch up my pains.
I do pretty well considering all. I get a lot of pain free time, but I have to be mindful far as what I put into my body.
Caffeine, nicotine, and high fructose corn syrup can be triggers far as pain. Poor eating habits, and an empty stomach can trigger more pain as well.
I was a pain after sex guy post vasectomy. My second reversal failed 24+ months after the fact. I’ve been sterile for well over 4~ years, and I still get pain after sex/ejaculation sometimes.
Hard to say what the deal is exactly, buy my best educated guesses are, I have a little bit of everything going on at times.
Bottom line, I’m way better than I was before I had my first reversal, but I still have problems that ebb and flow. Sometimes I’m alright, other times I’m not. I’m certainly not bad enough to rush into another big mistake such as my varicocele embolization procedure.
When you get made worse by such a procedure, it’s tough to go backwards. Varicocele embolization is permanent.
