First off, my apologies that you are here. I wish you were not for your sake. I am currently 3 weeks post reversal and I am also trying to avoid this forum as I heal. With that said, I wanted to post 2 books that I am finding extremely helpful in aiding my recovery. This is a little hippy but I have been reading the science on how stress can prevent healing since your body is producing cortisol and not putting energy into healing.
Anyways, I have found the books “You are the Placebo” and “The Tapping Solution for Pain” have positively impacted my mental side. That seems to be helping me heal better. It all could be nonsense but what do I gotta lose. Candidly, I am seeing positive results. Maybe it’s all fake or a placebo effect. I don’t care. I am focused on recovery and they are not hurting. Someone else posted the tapping solution. Recently here and it too benefited here.
Based on those 2 books, i am meditating daily. I was never one of those people before. This does seem to reduce my pain levels when I do it.
2 weeks ago, I was really really negative. Now I am trusting in my body that it can heal. Anyways, it might not be for everyone and it might be a bunch bs. I just figured i would post a general topic here for everyone either post vasectomy or post reversal.
My best to everyone in their individual recovery.
(Please, if you have anything negative to say, please don’t “at” me. I am working on only positive thoughts.)
