Hey everyone- I just wanted to let you know how things worked out for me because I’ve been reading this page for a year or so. I had a vasectomy a year and a half ago and it was a terrible mistake. The right side was completely fine but the left side was horrifically painful. It was very painful having the procedure done on that side and continued to get worse and worse for a year. Very debilitating and made my life miserable. Nothing helped, my urologist said “I’m not saying you’re crazy, I’m just saying this is all in your mind”.
Anyway, I eventually switched urologists and had surgery on January 17th with Dr. Joanne Dale in Nashville, TN who I highly recommend. She removed the granuloma that had formed and removed the clips from the left side and sewed the testicle in place. It was very unpleasant afterwards and I was worried I had made a mistake after surgery because there was a ton of swelling and bruising but now two months later I am in MUCH better shape.
After the original vasectomy I felt like my testicle was is a vice and going to explode 24/7, this was made much worse by doing any physical activity or lifting. Now I’m able to live a normal life again. It will never really be 100% fixed, but it is 80% better than it was and I hope it continues to improve as time goes on. I can live with some discomfort from time to time, but I couldn’t live with the way it was before this corrective surgery.
Anyway, if any of you are in the Tennessee area definitely try to see if Dr. Dale can help you and I wish all of you the best in trying to find some relief from this terrible post vasectomy pain.
