Does taking papaya seeds, to reduce sperm, help reduce the effects of the auto-immune response since sperm is what the body initially reacted to? Or, once triggered, do the immune issues continue even in the complete absence of sperm (such as with heavy T-therapy eliminating sperm, for instance)?
Same thing with reversal–does putting the sperm back where it belongs help? I’ve heard it can’t stop the immune response, but if sperm are no longer free-flowing into the body, how could it not help to an extent? What have others experienced?
Has anyone found relief for the immune stuff aside from coping mechanisms?
I’m one month post vas and have extreme tightness in both knee joints, random numbness and joint stiffness in hands, random tingling in arms and legs. It varies from intense to minor and started within days of the vas. I had absolutely zero symptoms prior to the vas.
I’m probably going to get the reversal due primarily to ED and hormonal issues (slower growing beard, disappearance of natural skin and hair oil, “feelings” that don’t feel like mine); from what I’ve heard there is a decent chance reversal can help with all of this, but I’m not sure about the immune issues.
I would greatly appreciate any guidance and tips!
