Hey guys. I’m new to the forum here. But I didn’t know where else to go. I’m just over 6 weeks post op today and so far have regretted my decision ever since. Had a pretty seamless operation. Doc did have to hit me again with a numbing agent and tug a bit to get the left vas exposed. That day I sat around on ice all day pretty doped up and didn’t think too much about it. The next day say around all day and was good. Then day 2 I went to my sons baseball games and a trip to Sam’s Club after. Felt decent. Not too much pain. So much so that on day 2 I let the wife help me out if you catch my drift. Probably not the best move. And probably too soon. But no pain and felt good.
Steady pain consistently then Around week 2 the bruising set in. And boy did my scrotum bruise. Warm to the touch everything but just kept icing. Around week 4 I thought I was getting better. Had a dull ache in the testicles but nothing to crazy but it did radiate into my stomach. Felt like I had been kicked. That pain has been constant now for the last 2 and a half weeks. Radiates into my groin and legs here and there. Ibuprofen doesn’t help. Percocet does but I don’t like taking those. I’ve read absolute horror stories online about people having to eventually get surgeries up to and removing testicles. I don’t want a reversal if I don’t need one. The wife and I have 4 kids and made thus decision together. I was very happy about the decision I just wish someone would have told me the possibility of this pain. I’ve read a few threads on here. Some people taking several months up to a year.
I guess why I’m here Us for support. The guys I know were good in a week. Another guy a month and one 2 months. I’m just hoping it’ll get better. Just asking for experiences and encouragement so I hang on. Am I still early in the healing process? This is nothing like they promise. Quick snip, mild pain for a week then back to normal. I am far from normal! Just hoping and praying this gets better. Thanks for reading and the support. Hope to hear from some guys with similar scenarios that got better over time. Thank you.
