Hello everyone. This is my first post.
I had my vasectomy two years ago and experienced pain for about two months following the procedure. The pain pretty much went away on its own.
Fast forward to two months ago, I started having a constant, dull, nagging pain in my right testicle. I had an ultrasound done by my urologist and was told I had a small epididymal head cyst on that testicle and to just take the max dose of ibuprofen/Tylenol and ice it. A few weeks went by and no improvement to pain. He then tried an antibiotic with no success and now I’m on steroids with no success.
Then a week ago, I noticed a new pain with my other testicle (left side) when I ejaculate. This pain is more of a sharp pain and hurts a lot more. When I ejaculate, my left testicle feels like it moves out of my scrotum and into the left side of my groin. I have to physically massage it to get it back into my scrotum. It hurts a great deal and is ruining sex for me.
I saw my urologist again yesterday and after he profusely apologized for the symptoms I’m experiencing and told me how rare I am in the case of having postvasectomy pain (sure!), he prescribed me Flomax to try for a month. He said if that doesn’t help that he will try giving me weekly injections of a nerve blocker for six weeks. I asked him about a vasectomy reversal and he said that would be a last ditch effort if all else fails but that he would want to try several things before resorting to that. I also don’t want a vasectomy reversal if I can avoid it. But reading some of the other stories on here doesn’t give me much hope that anything else will work, even a reversal.
I’m sure many of you have been where I am right now and I would love to hear from you. Thank you!
