My story: I had my vasectomy in september 2020. Pain resisted for months. First on both testikels, later on only on the left side and in my groil and the inner side of my upper leg. In april 2021 I had a second operation. The original vasectomy was turned into an open end vasectomy, scar tissue was removed (they said a nerve was pinched) and some peripharal nerves were cut through (neurolyse).
Now after another four months the pain resists:
- My left testikel is still hurting all the time. A nagging constant feeling.
- Every morning I wake up and my scrotum is tingling. During the day the tingling comes and goes, when I’m sitting.
- There is pain in my groil and inner side of my upper leg.
- The pain gets worse after effort (sport) or a short time during ejaculation and also the days after drinking too much.
- It does effect my quality of life every day. Fysical and mental. It makes me depressive and hopeless.
My questions are:
- Does somebody recognize these symptoms and is willing to share the outcome of it?
- What can be the cause of the tingling and is that a good or a bad sign? Is it possible it will fade away in time.
- What can I expect after 4 months. Is there hope that giving it time will solve the problems?
- Are there any other options left: is reversal of the vasectomy (vasovasectomy) an option to get rid of the pain? Is that even possible after my surgery?
