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?

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.

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.

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?

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?

Should I elect for surgery on my scrotal hematoma?
Vasectomy -1 answer
The urologist that performed the vasectomy on me diagnosed me with a hematoma 7 days after. He initially said it didn't warrant an operation but then wavered on that. He is really pushing me to have surgery to drain the hematoma. I decided to wait at the time, and now I'm 13 days in and still very swollen and in pain. I am going to get a second opinion, but if the second doctor also recommends surgery, should I do it or try to wait it out? I don't want to be like this for months. I'm worried.
