I thought I’d start a thread about vaselgel because thinking about it leads my mind to some interesting thoughts, and places.
It will be interesting to see how the statistical data pans out if, and/or when the world gets to the point where it has decades worth of data regarding outcomes from vaselgel. For those that don’t know what that is, Google it.
Obviously vaselgel will still carry all the risks, and complications of the congestion end of the spectrum, but if they are preformed properly under doplar, ultrasound, etc, the risks should be a lot lower on the immediate nerve damage end of things, amongst other complications that are related to cutting, cauterization, scarring, etc, etc.
From my point of view, the whole “is it congestion or nerve damage” topics that exist now, and have for decades may have a bit of light shed on the whole subject far as what’s causing what if technology actually makes it that far on a grand scale. But will it ever make it that far?
The idea of “safer” doesn’t mean nobody will suffer immediate injuries from a simple needle inserted into the vas, and a substance injected into it to cause an obstruction, and thus sterilizing a man.
They claim vaselgel will be reversible, but time will tell how successful that will pan out to be as well. Something tells me there will be issues on several levels, and even if the reversible aspect about it works, some men will be so damaged by back pressure, etc, etc, there will undoubtedly be failures, and/or complications that will be similar, and/or the same as vasectomy.
We have at least one member on this site that works with needles very regular, and has already told on himself that he has in fact hit a nerve with a needle before. Seems he said these people did get better over a period of many months, or better.
Anyway, it will certainly be interesting to see how vaselgel pans out far as it’s own version of pvps, the symptoms, the severity, autoimmune issues, etc, etc, but unfortunately many of us will be old, or dead by then.
