Hey guys, hope you are all surviving this nightmare ok! Wondering if I can get your thoughts:
Had vasectomy in 2017 from Dr Snip (yep).
Supposed to be easy blah blah blah back to sport and work in a few days, he does like 14 a day.
Had abdominal pain about a week or two later and ended up getting a steroid injection at the site from same dr. This didn’t really do anything and next 6 months I had flare ups in abdomen mostly with some tenderness in balls.
Went to er a few times and nothing found so put it down to this.
Found another vasectomy dr Chris lekich from Metrocentre in Queensland and researched him and saw him a few times. He believed these were flare ups and they should simmer down eventually.
Didn’t really happen, so we decided he would do the procedure again his way. Dr Snip uses clips and closed, whereas lekich uses no clips and open ended which all sounded much better.
Procedure done, some recovery but in general much better. Occasionally I would have flare ups which mostly consists of abdominal pain and tender balls but would go away.
2 weeks ago started getting crazy abdominal pain again. Feels like barb wire being pulled through stomach, with again some tenderness in balls. If I lay on left side to ‘sleep’ I’m in agony and feel a sick feeling through body. I haven’t slept for 2 weeks and been in hospital twice but they can’t find anything. Also had episodes of burning pain in urethra but urine and blood tests all 100%.
Never had any problems with erections or ejaculation or anything, maybe some mild discomfort recently.
ER doc put it to nerve pain from the vasectomy, but I’m just not sure.
What do you guys think? Does anyone else get this awful abdominal pain? Hoping it’s not related and they just can’t work out what it is…
I’m really struggling with the pain and if I didn’t have a young family I’m not sure what I would do. Thank you
