Post Vasectomy Pain Forum

Water consumption

A person I know had a vas and had classic pvps for about 6 months, saw several Dr’s and got the normal song and dance from them. The last dr told him to drink massive amounts of water. He figured why not try it. He tried it and he swears it worked. He said he still has pain but it is manageable and if he slacks on water the pain increases. Something to consider.

Hmm. How much water are we talking?

I wonder whether the doctor was trying out the placebo effect.

I experienced something similar to this as well. On the days I drank at least 3L some of my pain would dissipate. May have been placebo but in the early days of talking with my vas surgeon, I told him this and he noted it in my chart.

Still ended up going for reversal though.
