Hi there, this is my first post. I’m not really sure how the forum works, I hope this is okay.
I had a vasectomy two weeks ago, I’m crippled in pain and I’m not seeing any improvement day to day.
Initially, everything seemed okay, the procedure was quick and fairly painless. The first couple of days were fine. By the third day I started getting this feeling of pressure backup (blue balls feeling), low abdomen swelling pain (feels like my balls are in my stomach), groin pain that travels down to the back of my knees, swollen balls (twice the size as normal).
Now two weeks, and zero progress. I feel the same every day, the swelling has maybe come down slightly, but the pain and pressure in my testicles is getting exhausting. Laying around in pain with little to no progress is obviously starting to freak me out. Talking to the urologist that performed the surgery, he says be patient, give it a few months.
My question is, why am I not getting any progress? Every day is the same. I wake up feeling slightly less pain but have this bizarre type of tingling sensation in my penis and testicles which turns to pain and pressure as soon as I get up and walk, sitting is extremely painful, I’m laying on my back with my legs spread in a huge amount of pain all day and night, I don’t even want to sit up as it seems the more I move the I have to pay.
I’m a active person, I train heavy 6 days a week, I’m devastated just laying here. My wife is very supportive but I don’t like to have to rely on anyone, it scares me needing this much help and support just to get through the day.
Am I overreacting this early? Thanks for any advise, I’m very sorry to read about some of the long term pain and suffering that people here have endured.
