Update from the reversal. As soon as I was out of surgery and woken up, I thought that everything was doing pretty well. I didn’t feel the pressure pain I was having before, but I was still on the pain killers and completely swollen. I thought to myself, Great!! It truly was the original vasectomy that was the issue. Swelling was huge for the next 3 weeks. I was lucky with my surgeon that he went through the original scars, and didn’t perform a hack job on my sac. My surgeon told me that he removed the granuloma, and that there was “Much More” scar tissue that he had to remove then what he thought he was going to. I am assuming he didn’t think that there was going to much at all. I was feeling great, but as my swelling started to decrease, I started to freak out, because I started having that original “ride up” pain from the bottom of my left testicle to my lower inguinal area. I thought for sure I was screwed. Just paid an obscene amt. of cash for nothing. I do have to credit @GM18501 who has been there for my through it all. I continued his take on the vitamin C, vitamin D, and the cranberry extract. he has been my right hand man/wing man through this, and I am an anxious person to begin with, so I know at times, I must drive him nuts, but I am so thankful for him and this forum, on helping me out. Also a shot out to @raising4girls for calling me and helping me out as well. I have another guy to thank, but can’t think of his call sign right now, but if you are reading this, know that I have not forgotten you and am thankful for you reaching out to me. So back to my recovery…As I thought that I was getting better I had an ejaculation overnight in my sleep at the 2 week post op period. Totally freaked me out because my surgeon said no ejaculations for 4 weeks. I thought that I might have messed stuff up. I felt some throbbing pain throughout the day, but nothing too bad, and it seemed to go away a day or two later. On to the next part of my recovery. this might not have anything to do with it, but at the 2.5 week mark, I started to have some pain in the middle of both of my butt cheeks. I thought this was just due to laying in the same spot for such a long time. Then I developed bilateral wrist, feet, ankles, heels, elbows, and shoulder pain, with lower back pain. I thought for sure this was all due to the surgery, so as I write this post, I am waiting on my steroid to be filled at the pharmacy. I have never had any issues with anything like this before, and all of my labs came back normal other than a high crp c-reactive protein level. so that states that there is inflammation going on in the body. hopefully it works and kills this shit. Just to let you guys know, there is something called "Delayed reactive Inflammation response that can happen post surgery, and I found this related to vasectomies. I can’t believe that vas or reversal would be much different since they both deal with tissue damage., so if your joints are hurting, just a heads up on that. I would love to know if anyone else has had to deal with this. this has taken some of the awareness of reversal pain and healing away. But, what I can tell you about the reversal pain for 5 weeks is this: The pressure feeling is gone, and the lower abdomen pain is gone, but I still have the sensitive left testicle (one of the original problems) still active. I do have that heavy ball sack feeling, and I would assume there is still some swelling going on and healing going on in there. Just heartbreaking because you want it to go away so fast, and if 2/3 symptoms have gone away, why is the 3rd one sticking around? Let the mental games begin. This testicle pain I feel starts at the bottom of my left testicle, and when the testicle is held up or brought up, sends this pain riding up to the vas reconnected site. My reconnection sites are sore, not horrific, I could honestly live with that for good, if that was the final result. They started to hurt this past weekend because I work in a hospital and have to move patients all day. People aren’t small, and they are dead weight, so this honestly was the first strenuous activity I have done. So it makes perfect sense to why they are sore. So doing ok, I guess, but still waiting for that sensitivity and pain to leave the left testicle. it feels like the original pain, but I am hoping that it goes away with time. I know that I am in the early stages of recovery, but I guess I feel like if swelling has gone down, then healing must be almost done too. From what I have read, this is going to be a loooooong process. I hope to be able to run, and not have to guard my nuts when my kids are around me. Thanks for listening to me guys! I will keep you updated, and please give me any wisdom, advice, knowledge or any help you can. we are all in this together, and I feel sorry for you all! Hopefully better posts in the future.
