I had a block, but it was localized in the testicle. I think it was to numb the nerves along the spermatic cord… I had almost instant relief… like the freezing when getting a filling, that type of sensation! It only lasted a little under 24 hours. The Dr. Hoped this was long enough to break the cycle of pain. Unfortunately, it was not!
My pain is not from a Vasectomy! It’s idopathic testicular pain -cause unknown. The only relief I get, is when I am sitting a bath of hot water, or if it is hot out, and everything hangs lower and away from my body.
I have read about research that was done involving Botox, not in the nerve, but in the scrotum muscles. Seeing as the pain subsides dramatically when my scrotum hangs lower and away from my body, this seems like it may work… however, no one does it in my area.
Dr.Jarvi did the study, and I have been waiting for an out of province referral to him since February.
I guess that speaks volumes for the amount of pain. I am willing to pay out of pocket to travel 2000 kilometres plus expenses to see him in hopes… just the hope, he can help
