I’m about 3 months out post vasectomy, still in a serious amount of pain almost constantly. I have been trying to walk daily, get the legs moving at the very least. Today I tried something a little different.
Just a little background before I get into it, I’ll keep it short and simple. Open ended vas, still swollen in the area from my tail bone to my lower abs, plus groin area. Prudential nerve damage of some short, doctor agrees, trouble holding urine, issues with bowel movements, numb painful penis.
I have been weight lifting for almost my entire life pretty consistent unless injured, or on holidays. It’s been 3 months of doing very little since vas, this is one of the times my lifting has been put on hold , walking as much as I can, but just not getting anything out of it. I decided I would do a few sets of squats no weight, this is easy for me, I can squat a lot of weight normally. Well, it seems my glutes and hamstrings are not firing and the fronts of my legs are doing all the work. My question is why? Normally once in the squatted position, I stand up using mainly glutes, this is no longer happening. Also, my quads burn to the point that I can hardly walk after, this has never happened.
What I’m doing is a very easy simple movement that I’ve done thousands of times, now my body seems to be firing different muscles to do the same job, can this be possible ?
