i had my vas in Jan of this year and have been in pain since week 2. The pain in my balls has subsided but where I was cut is still sore on both sides. The main pain is in my groin high where the hip meets. I can still do most things, sex is not painful so don't think it is congestion. After four months of this though my anxiety levels are rising. Do I wait longer or pull the trinket now and opt for a redo? Does a redo help if not due to congestion? I am assuming I have scar tissue causing referred painView 3 Replies
I had a Vasectomy back in 2010 and had a Vasectomy Reversal in 2012. My pain was extreme from 2010-2012 and relieved about 50% after the Reversal. I have extreme pain on my left testicle after any kind of sexual activity and random pain throughout the day some days unbearable. In the past I had radiating pain on my left leg and buttox but that was prior to the reversal. Its just on my left side, not my right.
I take antibiotics once in awhile from my doctor, but it doesn't seem to help. I have pain in my upper epididymis as well as pain in my testicle. Feels like it's being squeezed. I honestly feel like this Vasectomy has stolen my life from me.
I'm 30 years old. I had a vasectomy done 1 year ago. Since I had the vasectomy operation I'm having an significant chronic pain on a daily basis. Testicular ache and a sharp burning pain radiating up to my abdomen. it's a very unpleasant feeling constantly. I'm so afraid that I have to live with this pain for the rest of my life. I take painkillers every day, which I don't like. Other then that I do not have any underlying diseases or medical histories.
I wish to get a vasectomy reversal with the goal of relieving my “post vasectomy pain” so I can live a normal life again. (I don't care if I become fertile again or not, I just want to get rid of the pain).
I heard that a vasectomy reversal relieves the build-up of back pressure that may cause pain in the testicles.
But for other patients, the pain is not due to back pressure, but rather to chronic inflammation at the vasectomy site. If the urologist cut out the inflammation site and reverse the vasectomy, the pain will usually be eliminated.
The pain may result from microscopic amounts of sperm leaking out of the vas deferens into the surrounding tissue. This leakage can cause inflammation.
What if I have an inflammation ?.
Will the urologist be aware of this and remove the inflammation before he performs the vasectomy reversal operation ?
I've been having ED (erectile dysfunction) for the last 1-2 months. Sometimes I'm able to attain a weak erection, my penis is noticeably softer than it was before all of the issues I'm having. After orgasm my penis loses girth almost immediately. Furthermore I'm UNable to continue with intercourse even with a rest of 30 or so mins, I have always been able to go multiple rounds of intercourse with my wife without any issues previously. I have always been very sexually active without any issues whatsoever. This issue is really causing me to feel low and my wife is concerned for me, which is impacting on her ability to be comfortable during intercourse. I'm considering a vasectomy reversal due to this. My doctor has arranged the usual blood tests, i.e to measure testosterone levels etc. I'm yet to receive the results. I can only maintain an erection through intense physical stimulation. I previously only needed to be visually stimulated, this is very frustrating for me. Furthermore i'm only able to maintain an erection during vaginal penetration whilst i'm on top of my wife with my wife's legs are pushed up and back, as this gives me more sensation in my penis.. i struggle to maintain an erection when my wife is on top or if we do it whilst i'm behind her.
Im totally aware that those within the medical field will be totally dismissive of the vasectomy procedure being the culprit for my ED issue. However im a believer that not all people fit into the same category within current research, as we are all unique and no two people are exactly the same. Not all people's bodies will always react in the same way to the same situation.
Is there a way back from this mess without the use of drugs ?
Last night I failed to have an erection, even through intense visual and physical stimulation. I had consumed alcohol and did feel tipsy, I have always found alcohol enhanced my erections and sexual desire. This was very shocking for me. Due to this I reluctantly took 50mg of a viagra type pill that was prescribed by my doctor. It took well over 1 hour for it to work, I was able to have the best erection I've had I months. I don't want to take drugs to combat this issue, I'm becoming very depressed due to this.
Has anybody out there had this issue resolved by having a vasectomy reversed??
I'm considering having it reversed to hopefully fix my erection issues. Furthermore I feel as if my testicles have atrophied (shrunk in size) somewhat since the vasectomy. If there is scar tissue and atrophied testicles etc or general damage to my genital area could my body heal the the damaged tissues etc through having a reversal?
The best way about a vasectomy is to NOT have one. Anyone who thinks that they have got away without problems just can not say anything as PVPS can come on at any time until we die I know a friend who is in his mid-seventies and has more pain than in the whole of his life.View 4 Replies
Hi I am looking for help I have just had my second vasectomy done just 2 weeks ago due to a failed vasectomy the first time. I have 2 large lumps 1 at the incision site and 1 and the opposite end of the incision and they are both causing me a lot of pain which runs down my leg I have seen my doctor but has told me to give it a couple of months but I didn't get any pain like this the first time. Can a second vasectomy increase any chances of side effects or chronic pain.View 1 Replies

I had a Tubal Reversal 02/22/2013. I had 9cm on right tube and 10 cm on left. My cycles are average 23 days. My first cycle came 02/23/2013 and lasted until 02/27/2013. We started TTC my second cycle which came 03/18/2013 and lasted until 03/22/2013. Both of my cycle were normal after surgery. We had intercourse 03/20, 03/22, 03/24, 03/26, 03/27, and 03/28. I believe I ovulated on the 27th (according to an ovulation calendar) I am now 10 DPO and I have been experiencing some pain on my left side, cramps that come and go as well as bloating, headaches, heartburn, slight heaviness in lower abdomen, a weird metal taste that comes and goes, really moody, unable to have a BM , tender itchy breast, dull lower back pain, a slight runny nose, and itchy skin mainly on my lower stomach. I do not remember having any of these symptoms with my last pregnancy 9 years ago, and I did not have these symptoms with my last cycle. I also know I am at risk for a tubal pregnancy. My next period is not due until 04/10. I took a first response pregnancy test this morning and it showed a FAT negative :'( . MD said its prob ovulation and constipation, but I just feel pregnant. Can anyone please give me some advice?View 1 Replies
My mom had emergency surgery that almost cost her her life. She had her bowels rupture into her stomach and she almost died. She went septic and it was really bad and scary. She has a colostomy and it will be reversed in six months. Her surgeon said to see a special doctor that specializes in reversals. She is 71 years old and they said she will make the decision to reverse or just end up keeping it. I know it is major surgery again and your age is a risk factor and your health etc. They also said if she were to decide to reverse it, she would need a colonoscopy done first. It scares me, because we almost lost her once. She is doing well with the colostomy and I actually helped her with it and we did well our first time on our own. I was proud.
The one thing she does do all the time is pull her pants down to check it all the time. Is this something that is normal in the beginning? I will be standing in the room and she has her pants down checking it.
I am a US citizen living in Costa Rica the last 10 years. I had my second child on Nov. 28th at age 40. It was a difficult birth and the wall between my anus and vagina was torn 10 cm. They had to do emergency surgery to repair the wall and also did a colostomy in order to prevent infections to the repaired wall.
The stoma education provided in a third world country is lacking in every way possible. If it wasn't for the internet I wouldn't have survived the first difficult weeks. Eventually I was able to live a pretty normal life, even with a colostomy bag.
It is six months later, and I am scheduled for my colostomy reversal in two days. I have started a clear liquid diet. What can I expect? Is it a painful recovery? How soon will I have a bowel movement?

Just looking for advice. I just had a tubal reversal Sx done on 3/5 and am currently on the the mend as I ran into an infection. That aside, the Dr. said my tubes were "beautiful" and the reconnection of both was successful. I'm 39 and my new, (almost 2 years) husband in 41. He has no children of his own; I have three ages 15 to 18. Just looking for experiences like mine and if pregnancies were successfully produced through a tubal reversal.View 1 Replies
I had the NovaSure procedure done over three years ago. I had my tubes tied eight years ago. I'm getting married and my fiancé, who doesn't have children, would like to have a baby. I still have a period, however, it's minimal to none (only brown discharge for four to five days). I've heard that doctors won't reverse your tubes unless you have enough of a uterine lining. Last ultrasound I had showed a good lining. I'm not sure if it was enough of one to sustain a pregnancy. I really want to know what my options are.View 1 Replies
I had my tubal reversal last wed JUNE 29th. Since then I have the worst swelling and a very nasty hard long bump under my incision. It looks like some sort of a healing ridge! I was just wondering if anyone else has gotten this and does it go away?View 1 Replies
I have a 38 year old developmentally handicapped son who had emergency abdominal surgery due to Fournier's Gangrene last August which resulted in a temporary transverse colostomy in order to give his rectal area a change to heal. There was infection around his sphincter muscles and that is why the colostomy was done. We are now contemplating have this reversed. The surgeon says that his sphincter muscles are working but not as good as they should and she is afraid she may render him incontinent if she reverses it and he will be unhappy but he cannot be more unhappy than he is right now.His transverse is in a terrible place and we encounter a lot of flange changes as it doesn't stick even with paste, etc. and is bowel is prolapsed which is very upsetting to him. Another option is to move it down lower in his abdomen but we are considering having it reversed and seeing if he can control his muscles. We are believing that we have to try. Are there others out there with the same issue of weak sphincter muscles who have opted for a reversal?.View 6 Replies
