Post Vasectomy Pain Forum

My story vasectomy pain

There’s actually a such thing as “reputation defending software” that these “docs” use to comb the internet for negative feedback.

They can do it themselves, or can easily pawn this job off on a staff member deal with this, and do all the dirty work for them.

When they get alerts regarding negative feedback, they can easily find it, and generally speaking, have it removed.

Yep, he sure is a low life grub to say the least.

He lies online, and he lies directly to your face.

Don’t get much worse than that.

Hello everyone. Heres a update coming up to 6 months post reversal, just did my latest semen test 186 million and 63% motile so i am back to normal non vas person. Pain wise i am no better really, some days testicle pain seems better but i think its all to do with activity. I have always suffered lower abdominal pains from vas and that sadly has not changed. Basically now i am fertile and still in pain but anyway i had to try. I still have a large hydocele on left testicle and a hard lump remainder of hematoma, the hydocele will get drained end of month.I still suffer cord pain flank pain and all the other crap. So sadly reversal has not helped me yet, but hey maybe in the next 6 months who knows. I dont work much or excerise much just some light swimming but can live my daily life ok. i have pretty well given up on doctors and specialists as this horrible thing we have sometimes can not be treated but just keep waiting more time may fix. I still also have all the strange prostate issues, cant pee normal dribble dribble and have trouble holding a full bladder etc and all sorts of weird stuff like i have a infection. My prostate has been ckecked over and over its normal. All the issues vas gave me have not gone away. Also i still have IBS issues which is hard as i was fine before vas. All the best everyone hope you all had a good christmas and new year, hope this year is kinder for all of us on this forum.

He has one bad outcome documented now. Thanks for being brave and sharing your story and his name. It’s very hard to be dispassionate and objective towards your original doctor but it’s important to try. It’s not so much they harmed you terribly, it’s that they did not provide adequate informed consent. In some cases there is genuine denial/disbelief that vasectomy can cause a man problems. In that case so every provider gets the benefit of the doubt up until the first bad outcome. After that, if you document what happened as you have here and make them aware it’s more like malpractice if they don’t incorporate your outcome into their marketing/informed consent practices.

Doctors have to have a thick skin and bad outcomes do happen, however, they have an obligation to provide proper informed consent. ESPECIALLY FOR A COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY ELECTIVE PROCEDURE.

This is lifesaving surgery, it’s completely optional and voluntary, which makes it more unforgivable for providers to run from a bad outcome in order to keep selling the procedure as completely safe. The chronic lifelong pain/discomfort is almost never mentioned…

sorry to hear that you are still in pain man. Hang in there. At least you know you aren’t alone…for what that’s worth.

Hello everyone. I havent posted any updates for a while i am coming up to 8 months post reversal. I still have all the strange ball pain, cord pain, abdominal pain, and ibs issues from all previous antibiotics and meds. I will never be able to run or ride my motocross bikes again but can steadily live my daily life working part time only. I am fully fertile. October marks 2 years since original vas man what a life changing 2 years. Some days are better than others but other days are bad. I finally have not much left of hematoma after 8 months and still have a hydrocele on left which has been drained once. Just doing this update so people know that all reversal people dont get fixed straight away but maybe beyond 12 months some just leave forum. But i am glad i got reversal and all that sperm not poisoning me. Also in my previous posts a healthy person in Australia without pvps took 12 minths for recovery.How are other reversal guys going?

Hello everyone, guna update this havent been on forum for a while. I am roughly 1 year from reversal and nearly 2 years from original vasectomy. What a 2 years life changing event it has been for me it was horrible. So nowadays i still have Left hydrocele about size of a extra nut or so not going to do anything with it till its bigger. Still have testicle pains, cord pains, abdominal and lower groin area pains etc like i have always suffered maybe bit better than pre reversal but learning to live with this monster. Also now at 12 months right side must be closing up as upon lead up to ejaculation i get a burn up the right cord which sucks. Also my health hasent been good either nowadays i have macular eye disease and i am on injections in eyeball just to keep my vision. Is this related god knows but since that day i had vas i developed IBS issues, arthritis and sicknesses where does it stop, Like Mikeo says little old lady swallowed a fly. I will keep this short this time all the best everyone and sadly welcome to the new people. Bye.

Hello everyone. I dont come on here much anymore and i just want to update this quickly.
First up just because we leave no we are not fixed, it brings us sanity leaving forum. I pretty much have all previous symptoms, cord pain, testicle pain, abdominal pain, nerve pain, hydroceles, pinching pains and more. I have been draining my own hydroceles with needle and syringe every month. Also bit like Mike because of all the meds, steroids, antibiotics and more my gut is stuffed i have IBS nowadays.
Also i am due for maybe hydrocele surgery in new year, so that means out with the nuts again while they do repair. I have found a new uro doc in Australia who is actually a cancer doctor, he is very honest and as said before on this forum there are not just few of us this is very common. In a small city of say 100000 people he alone is treating about 10 of us in vasectomy pain. Not only that but the changes in testicles in vasectomy men is extreme. Ranging from varicoceles, cysts, hydroceles, swollen epididamus and lots more. soon as a ultrasound is done they can pick a vasectomy immediately. All the best everyone. Laurie

Hello everyone, i havent posted on my story for a while just a update. On July 8th not long away i will go in to be cut open again 3rd time for hydrocele repairs (fluid in testicles). I am not looking forward to this as we know why we are all here, pain, but must be done. Since nearly 3 years of reversal i am not much better and have been battling hydroceles, which i been draining myself with needle and syringe which is very painful. But its better draining myself than walking around with 50mls fluid in each nut. So hope everyones hanging in there, until i post again Regards from Australia.

Well today 8th july i got my hydroceles repair. As i write this i am 10hrs post op.
I would not wish this upon anyone other than my worst enemy, that would be the man that started all this and gave me a vasectomy.
I am in bloody agony. This hydrocele repair make vasectomy and reversal a walk in the park.
In 10hrs post op my balls are the size of a large orange from swelling, fluid, and bleeding, what a shit show. I have a female pad on to catch the blood and agony pain in my balls and severe cramping in lower abdominal. Its midnight here i cant sleep or get comfortable, if i am no better in morning i will go to emergency department in hospital. Man lifes tough at times. Sorry about the whingeing guys.

So sorry you’re going through this Laurie, thinking of you

Hello Laurie, I was better, roughly a year after reversal I were very close to 100% recovered, but suffered an awful setback around 7 months ago, feel as bad if not worse as I did after reversal.

I am extremely slowly improving, and tbh, this covid situation is a blessing in disguise at least for me, as am struggling to walk or do any physical activity, and so am staying home most of the time.

I can go a whole day nearly pain free again if I rest and not exert myself, so this gives me a glimmer of hope for a recovery 2nd time round.

Thanks for reply. I didnt realise how much u been through as i dont come here much. Fuck these nut surgeries are agony mate its like torture. Hope you get better, are u in Usa?

Hi Paul, do you have any idea what could have triggered your setback?

Had a very busy week just before Christmas last year, started aching fair bit, but ignore it and carried on, and one night woke up with a lot of pain, as was probably trying to itch it, was tugging on the scrotum, and must have irritated the scar. Devastated.

Yes mate, pointless saying anything that already been said many times over on the forum. I’m in UK
