Just wanted to mention that I checked this morning and still have sperm in my ejaculate 9 years after my reversal. I don’t know if it’s one side or both open. I happen to believe It’s probably one side, my left, but it’s good to know. I did not achieve a satisfactory pain state, near complete pain resolution, until about 6 years after reversal. I did have a very significant drop in burning/stabbing pain immediately after my reversal for which I was grateful to the point of tears.
It’s long slog for some of us.
Not sure why I’m sharing this but thought maybe it would provide some useful information to the group about long term viability of reversal and how long recovery can take and that it can indeed take place even after a fairly long period of time.
Another mod has pointed out this post might be confusing or misleading to some. For anyone not familiar with my story I was here way back at the beginning and beyond with several guys on the old Yahoo Forum. I’m not going to repeat my entire story here again as I don’t feel like it and it’s all documented here probably multiple times over. I don’t post nearly as much as I used to and that’s because I was able to get to a place where I don’t consider myself to have chronic pain at all anymore. When that happens it’s pretty normal to just stop posting.
I just happened to do my semi-annual home SA using a cheap microscope and had swimmers.
Anyone have any questions about the rest of it you can PM me or post here and I’ll replay when I see it.
