Is there any association with vasectomy and lower back soreness/stiffness?
Vasectomy - 2 answers
I had my vasectomy about 2.5 weeks ago with little to no issues, other than Dr having a harder time finding right side vas. I’ve noticed though, since around this time, my lower back is sore and stiff. I’ve been a little paranoid in reading horror stories online, which I probably shouldn’t have. Could be coincidental. It’s not really painful, but I was curious if there’s any potential connection there.

I'm still mildly sore and achy roughly 4 weeks after my vasectomy. Is this normal?
I had a no-scalpel vasectomy just under 4wks ago and still have a dull ache and some pangs of a “kick to the balls” feeling. Is this normal? Doesn’t appear to be any real huge swelling, just an ache feeling around the sides and back of my testicles. As well, the puncture site still has a stitch and is a bit sensitive to the touch. Does healing just take longer for some?

I read that men who develop more aggressive forms of prostate cancer underwent vasectomies years ago. Is this true? Do you believe this research is true? Are there any other "lesser known," long-term risks to a vasectomy?

How large or firm is a standard self-curable hematoma?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
On day 5, I developed a large ball of fluid/blood above and behind my right testicle. It is the size of a green grape and just as firm as a slightly overripe grape. Using a heating pad, taking ibuprofen, and relaxing for the most part. Wearing a jock strap helps with pain. I have an office job. Will that be a problem to go into work without my heat pad? Bruising is not getting worse but the ball feels slightly firmer every day. Should I ask to get sliced and drained now?

I have a scrotal hematoma the size of an avocado or large bar of soap? My urologist wants me to wait it out. It's been 2 months.
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I've had a scrotal hematoma for 2 months. The stitched area has suddenly gotten red and soft while the surrounding area is very firm. Why isn't ice helping? I've had two ultrasounds, both confirming the hematoma. It's not decreasing in size or pain. It's pure misery. It's about the size of an avocado or large bar of soap. What do I do? Every time my urologist says it's best to wait and let the body re-absorb but I don't see or feel any improvement.

Based on this semen analysis, am I sterile?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I had an open-ended vasectomy in August 2018. The first semen sample in November 2018 had 0-2 dead sperm. The second sample in Jan 2019 had 0-2 dead sperm. Now the third sample in April 2019 showed 0-2 dead sperm. I'm not sure if I'm statistically sterile yet. What are the changes I could impregnate my wife?

Is it normal to have a burning/tingling sensation during and after ejaculation?
I had a vasectomy 2.5 weeks ago and was abstinent for the first 10 days. My testicles and general area are still tender but sexual activity is fine. At the end of an ejaculation there is a burning/tingling sensation at the end of my penis. Almost like a mild version of if you have gotten soap in the end of your penis. It lasts for 30 seconds to a minute after ejaculating. I've never had this issue before. Will this go away? Is it normal?

What happens to the upper vas after a vasectomy?

I had a vasectomy 12 days ago. I was sitting down and when I went to stand up I felt a new sensation that I can't quite describe. It wasn't painful, but more of a light pressure that seemed to move. Do the upper vas move into the body after the procedure?

Why don’t they just knock us out during vasectomies?
I have done tons of research and watched videos on vasectomies. Why doesn’t the AMA and AUA recommend laughing gas or general anasthesia? This looks extremely painful even when given something for anxiety! It turned me off to the whole procedure. Men feel pain too, especially in the most sensitive part of their body. In one video the doctor quipped “that’s my secret, the left side tells the right side what is about to happen.” He screamed out!
