Hi there. Very glad I found this forum, which is very useful. I would like to tell my experience so far and ask for advice:
I am 42 years old, and got a vasectomy because I do not wish to have more kids (have two boys)
Did a no-scalpel vasectomy on the 1st July 2021. Mild pain, first 3 days went ok. Was able to walk good , take shower, etc.
On day 7, I had to take a long haul flight. Flight was canceled, had to walk long distances, with luggage, hassle, etc. I was using loose boxers (to be confortable for the flight) and when I was done with all the walking, my testicles were upset and a bit swallowed.
The same day I was at the hotel (waiting for the new flight) I decided to have the first masturbation after the surgery. It hurt a bit, because of the movement in the testicles. But ejaculation was not painful.
When I arrived at my destination, the pain was worst and I noticed the pea size on the Vas area (I assume it is granuloma?) when taking a shower. Weeks 2 to 4 where very difficult, pain when walking, pain when taking shower, had to use a tight briefs or jockstraps, could not walk naked.pain was mainly on the right testicle and it was swallowed.
From weeks 5 to 6 pain is getting better, stopped touching the area (to feel the pea size stuff), and now I have this dull ache in the right testicles. I can walk with no pain, but if I cross my legs quickly or bend to take something in the ground it fells like it compresses the testicles and it hurts.
In addition, if something hits the bottom back of my testicles , I fell a 7/10 sharp pain, that quickly subsides. For example, if the elastic of the jackstrap hits the bottom of my testicles, whne I am peeing.
Ok, after all that:
kind of frustrated as practically all websites say that you will be recovered in 5 days. It has been 45 days for me, and still feeling weird there.
do you guys think the sharp pain in the bottom of the testicles is due to congestion? The fact I had so many events on the 7 day (physical effort, first masturbation, and pea size mass ) confused me on what is the culprit.
any advice for the next 3/4 weeks? Doctor said to wait 2 months, and any indication was to use tight briefs.
Thanks a lot all?
