My vasectomy was pretty normal for the most part. They put under because of how nervous I was, & when woke up, it was all over. I don’t remember much from our conversation, next thing I know, I’m at home. I took the usual 3 days, icing and resting. I wish I got & understood how important it was to have supportive underwear. Mine didn’t cut it and might have lead to further pain. Immense amount of bruising all over my scrotum and up my penis. My scrotum looks like a deflated balloon, having issues keeping it dry down there because it itches so bad after they shaved it, I’m using aloe Vera to keep it moisturized. Pain comes & goes in the scrotum, better now with supportive underwear. I would say a 4 at the moment. Only on 600mg of Ibuprofen, wish I had something better.
My question for everyone is the lump I feel on top of my left testicle, which pretty feels like a 3rd testicle, but size of a grape and shaped like a small prune. Is this normal experience 2 weeks after? A little tender to touch, but not pain full yet. I went to see the Urologist today and they said it’s normal to get sperm granulomas, and it should go away. Was hoping for a antibiotic or something to speed it along. Supposed to keep an eye on it and keep them posted.
My testicles are still a little soar, still very red, but the bruising has gone away for the most part compared to what it was. I have these weird sensations/zings that I will feel in different parts of my body that is new after the vasectomy. It’s not painful, just annoying. It’s like a quick shock I will feel in my foot, abs, upper thigh, shoulder, & penis, which weirds me out. Doesn’t happen often, just here and there, is that happen to anyone else?
I’ve tried masturbating, was very afraid to after reading other experiences. I waited for 10 days post, then gave it a try. I wasn’t what I expected, but wasn’t painful, maybe lucked out there. Haven’t tried to have sex with my wife though, I’m afraid of what that would feel like to let my balls free and swing freely this soon.
I’m always afraid something worse is going to happen, take longer to heal, or always have these pain feelings. I know there are way worse situations out there, and you all have my sympathy and prayers. This is not what I expected from others who say 2-3 days and fully recovered. Anyways, would love to hear back from others and their experience. I don’t feel like my wife understands or wants to talk about it. She has chronic pain due to medical issues, so mine seems little compared to her everyday life. Pain is pain and everyone deals with it differently.
