I am here for my husband…He is somewhat scared to start reading on these forums. So I pull out helpful information for him and leave out anything I think would make him more discouraged.
My husband had his vasectomy in Dec (3.5 months ago) bc we had already met our deductible and he figured he might as well… that being said our lives have not been the same sense. His urologist dismissed him and said it would go away… it didn’t. We found another local urologist who at least took him serious and said it might be PVPS. He gave him an antibiotic and said if that doesn’t work (it didn’t)…the next option would be a nerve block or a medicine like gabbapentin (my husband doesn’t like the way any opioid meds make him feel so he said no and he gets migraines easily).
My husband had a prior history of lower back pain (due to disc degeneration) in L5/S1 and sciatic nerve pain in right side but after doing PT every morning he has been pain free for at least 7 years…until the vasectomy.
His right testicle, right hip, and right side of lower back have been in constant pain since the vasectomy. Left testicle hurt for a few days and then was just fine. He has no pain related to intercourse. But he can no longer exercise, run, lift anything heavy. My husband is only 41 and we have a 6 and an 8 year old and he can’t really even play with them in the back yard. We are prayerful for a solution and I am ready to tell anyone who will listen about the possible dangers of a vasectomy (zero risks were disclosed to my husband other than he had to sign off saying he would be sterile).
What would you all think are our next steps? Reversal? SC denervation? (Or at least a block first to see if that helps?) We are willing to do anything. We live in TN but will travel if needed.
Thank you all for any help you provide.
