How Is Life Post Reversal?

How is your life post reversal?

What physical changes have you noticed?

Knowing what you know now, would you still get the reversal?

Thank you,

I’m begging to see the light at the end of the tunnel. A lot of positive changes, posted them on my reversal journal. At this stage, am happy with my reversal and quietly hoping that I will not scar over

I’ve been very fortunate. Vas in March 2005, reversal in June 2006. Had a relapse of likely nerve pain late 2008 - early 2009 and then this bout that lasted about 2-1/2 years but is at bay now.

Post-reversal life outside those two bouts has been mostly pain-free but with a bit more sensitivity as with any other part of the body that’s been injured and operated on. All in all, very positive outcome from reversal.

I’m about 10% better post-reversal. I still have to take Rapaflo, and sometimes take ibuprofen, tylenol, or ice. Still have to reduce physical exertion. Still considering denervation, orchiectomy, and a spinal cord stimualtor. Would still have the reversal.

Hi sentosa. How are you doing now? Also, when was your reversal?

Reversal was Sep 2016. I’m still around 10% better. I take Rapaflo every day and on my bad days I add Tylenol, ibuprofen, and ice to the mix.

Hi guys, I am 6 months post reversal and am still having achy, pain which seems to be coming from the reconnection sites. Have any of you experienced this in your healing? Definitely better than after vas, but I hear that am still in the recovery stage, and just need to give it more time, maybe up to a year. Can the reconnection sites be hurting from nerve pain? Just curious to what you have all gone through. Can it take a full year or longer to have relief? I still guard myself whenever my kids come near me or I lean up against things. Crazy!! looking to be better, but just a struggle to just giving it more time. Definitely not wanting any more surgery, but was hoping most of the pain was gone 6 months after.
