Hey guys, hope y’all get better. I’ve been following a few here for a while but never posted. I had my vas July 2018. Had an hematoma that resolved. But since day one I’ve been reading stuff of pvps, antibodies, t levels, cancers and been so depressed and started massive anxiety. Unlike most of you here I don’t have pain that stopping me from doing anything but I’m considering reversal and I have a few questions. In last 4 months I got twice on the right and once on the left something like a lump on the tail of the epidimyte. It did not stop me from doing anything besides constant stress. I had pain for first 4 days about just upon touching them that’s it. I could still play soccer and all did not need pills to manage pain really. After that pain completely disappeared even if I squeeze the lump and then the lump slowly disappeared. I also got a cyst on top of the epi prior to those (confirmed by ultrasound) and it all went away. For the first bottom lump on the right epi ultrasound said everything was normal. All 3 lumps to me felt the exact same, hurt for the little time then then disappeared. The first lump On the right I remember going to 2 doctors. One said if I remember correctly that it might be antibody reaction. The other said it’s nothing to worry about it will go away as it did. Few weeks later I saw a great uro for something else but he said lump
Seemed to be just a cyst but it was pretty much the end part of of it. Then happened same thing on the left tail Of epi, I went to the first urologist of the first lump and he said it’s a inflammation it will go away as it did. Now the third one happened and same feeling and all I went back to the first uro and he said it was a cyst. Pain is gone but lump still there but much smaller. My scare to all this it’s that this is happening due to sperm being full in the epi and that it might one day cause me greater problems. Hence why I want a reversal just so sperm can come out and I don’t have to worry about this anymore. Also I just want to go back to normal
The way I was created.
My concern is if the reversal will work as a vas to vas reconnection. I wonder if those lumps mean blowout and that they can cause the reversal to fail. I know reversal has 5-10% chance of failing afterwards because of tissue scar. I live in Canada and reversal here is free but long wait. Therefor I’m going to private clinic so I could have it done within a month and this uro does about a few a week therefor he is experienced in the field compare to uro working is hospitals here.
I’ve been considering reversal since beginning but I’m scared of complications and side effects of surgery and of it would work since for now pain is not an issue but I’m scared to get them further down the line. I know cyst does not affect fertility so should not affect reversal but this lumps happened 3 times. Will they affect my reversal chances? Also is a sperm granuloma only happen at the top of the vas where it was cut? Does a blowout hurt? And can inflammation of the epi just Be because it’s full and that why made a harder lump and then went away so there was actually no blowout just and extension and irritation? Could they all be just a cyst/spermatocele? I’m only 1.5 years after vas. Thanks for your input. Also since I don’t have pain currently and would
Have to deal just with the procedure pain, would I be pain free faster than people with reversal On this forum?
