I have an appointment to help control the pain next Tuesday, but I'm getting really stressed and worried now. What can I do?
Vasectomy -1 answer
Hello, I had a vasectomy last week. I have a painful "swelling" (mid-hard at palpation) like a small ball. Only my left testicle is sensitive and painful (right side is normal for now). I also feel some "tensions" in my lower abdomen and in my left leg too. When I'm not moving or sleeping it is ok, but when I'm walking it is painful and uncomfortable. Thank you in advance.

What happened? What did he cut, and what are the possible side effects?
Vasectomy -1 answer
I had a vasectomy done in April 2019; the doctor cut and burned the tubes. I ejaculated over the number of times recommended by the doctor and waited over 3 months for the last test of semen. Now the doctor wants to do a second surgery. What did he cut and burn then?

Is this not a hematoma after all?
Vasectomy -1 answer
I am 3 weeks post-vasectomy and have a baseball-sized hematoma on the left side. I also have a varicocele on the same side. It's painful to touch on the bottom of the left testicle where the varicocele is. It doesn't have the dark bruise color the doctor warned me about. Now I’m worried it’s a swollen testicle or some other issue.

I have inflammation within my scrotum 1 year after a successful vasectomy. Could a clip have come loose, causing this problem?
Vasectomy -1 answer
I had a vasectomy a year ago and all has been well. In the last few days, there has been inflammation within my scrotum. The inflammation doesn't appear to be one of the testicles, but I am additionally having fevers and am really tired. Could a clip have come loose, causing this problem?

Has my vasectomy failed? I had the procedure in December 2018 and semen analysis shows I'm still not sterile.
Vasectomy -1 answer
I had a vasectomy performed in December 2018. As of my last monthly semen analysis in August 2019, I am still not sterile. My urologist wants to continue semen analysis with the belief that everything has yet to clear out. My July semen analysis was the only negative sperm result. August was positive again. Ejaculation count for non-sterile June analysis was ~35 and July was ~45. Assuming a normal 30 ejaculations a month, I am over 200 since the procedure. Looking for a welcomed second opinion.

Is recanalization/failure possible after a vasectomy?
Vasectomy -1 answer
I had a bilateral close-ended vasectomy in 2011. During the procedure, I had 1cm of vas from each side removed and the ends were ligated, cauterized, and the fascial sheath interposed between the ends of the vas. I want to know if recanalization is possible with this technique and if so, should I be worried about failure?

I had my vasectomy 7 years ago and all went according to plan. I had 2 negative sperm tests. What are my chances of conceiving a child?
Vasectomy -1 answer
I had my vasectomy 7 years ago and all went according to plan. I had my count rechecked last spring, just for extra certainty and again, all was well. I also have been diagnosed with hypogonadism and had been using Flomax at the time. What are the chances of actually being able to conceive a child?

I waited one week after my vasectomy to ejaculate. Hardly anything came out and it felt like there was pressure or a blockage in my testicles. Is that
Vasectomy -1 answer
It's been 7 days since my vasectomy. Today I tried masturbation and during the climax, hardly anything came out. In fact, it felt like there was a pressure build-up in the testicles. I'm worried if I try again something could burst and leak. Should I be concerned?

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?

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?

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.
