12 Day Update
Still healing well from a reversal on both sides. I’ve been able to take it relatively easy these last 2 weeks and haven’t had any significant challenges or setbacks with healing, which as I’ve mentioned previously was a welcome surprise from some of the horror stories I’ve read on the potential hell of recovery.
Still a few days from knowing what ejaculation will feel like, but as I can tell my libido has started to return, it seems like a long and difficult wait.
Having said this, I have some discomfort on my left side in the form of what I thought was some form of scrotal itch as a consequence of scars and incision healing. However, it’s surrounding the scars and not the scars themselves. As I’m trying to pinpoint the discomfort, I admit I’m not entirely sure if its origin is in fact new or the return of an original pain that varied in degree pre-reversal now that I’m past my immediate post-op recovery discomfort.
it seems like an isolated area of scrotal skin that feels like sensitive to the touch similar to a sunburn and does itch, but it feels subcutaneous. It feels quite literally like an itch I can’t scratch. Visually there is no obvious difference to rest of the skin. My doc recommended Aquaphor, but so far it hasn’t helped.
I have moved up my post-op checkup as a result. Hopefully I’ll find out what what other recommendations doc may have to eliminate what seems to be my only remaining symptom. In the scheme of things, it seems minor compared to the hell that I started with. If I can get this one thing under control I’ll be close to getting my life back.
Can anyone else shed light on this issue as a result of either vas or vas reversal?
