I started having post-ejaculation pain 3 months after my vasectomy and have penis sensitivity. Could this be nerve damage? Would a reversal help?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I had a vasectomy and 3 months later started having problems with post-ejaculation pain. It is a sharp spasm that shoots up the side of my lower abdomen. The location, I would say, is the right and left side of my pubic area. As silly as it sounds, when my testicles move upward, I get a horrible high sensitivity sensation in my penis, like the feeling you get when you're about to urinate. I've had this now for more than 15 months. Could this be nerve damage? Would a reversal help?

How long does a no-scalpel vasectomy wound take to heal?
It's been roughly 3 weeks since my no-scalpel vasectomy. The wound is still wet and looks fresh. It's clean; I'm using non-woven swabs. There is no pain or infection. I'm just wondering how long the wound will take to heal?

Can I play golf with a scrotal hematoma?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I had a vasectomy on April 29, 2019. I healed pretty well but developed pain 4 days later. Long story short, I went back to the urologist who did the procedure a week later. He said I have a hematoma. I’m feeling better and it’s going down. I still have a little pain but nothing like it was. Is it safe for me to play golf while recovering? It will be right at 2 weeks since my vasectomy when I am scheduled to play.

I'm having surgery for 3 large hematomas that developed after vasectomy. What do they do during the surgery? How long will it take to recover?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I developed 3 large hematomas 5 weeks after vasectomy. The incision leaked for a while but started much more last weekend, and a metal clip came out. A urologist inspected and popped the hematoma closest to the incision. The other 2 were 2 far back. I have a ultrasound today and surgery on Monday. I forgot to ask what the surgery is called, what they do, how long it takes to recover, and what the potential complications are.

Is the vas supposed to be attached to the scrotal skin?
Vasectomy - 1 answer
I had a vasectomy a little over a month ago. Now that I am mostly healed I notice the vas deferens are attached to the inside of my scrotal skin. I can feel that the tubes have a lot of tension. Is that okay or are they supposed to be loose and attached to nothing?

Am I awake during the no-needle, no-scalpel vasectomy?
On an advertisement I've seen for a vasectomy doctor, it states they use a no-needle anesthesia technique where they spray lidocaine or something. Does that mean I will be awake and coherent for this procedure? If so, I do not think I will be able to do that?

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?
