I was told there would be no pain -- just a few days of discomfort. Well, after the vasectomy it took like two months for me just to start feeling normal, but the pain never went away, so I went back to the doc a few times. On my last visit, I was referred to another doc. About 30 percent of vasectomies go wrong, so in the medical world, it is an acceptable risk.
The next day I was in the operating room for surgery to prevent a blow out and maybe lose the testicle. I had pain and a blue, swollen scrotum like an eggplant. I can only hope the pain will be over soon and my testicles will be safe. I don't want to do hormone therapy for the rest of my life that ends up destroying you liver and kidneys.
Medical statistics are wrong and never apply to an individual, as your body response is as different as our personality from the next guy.
So now I am sterile and after losing two kids and my wife, I have one son left. Thank God for him. I am looking at a new family. I can't give her a child of her own. Maybe I can have a normal sex life after recovery.
In general, there are not a lot of happy vasectomy victims I know and I know a few. Two of the eight are happy and recovery took about a year.
The picture starts to change a lot of guys. Just suck it up and hope it goes away so the doc will check you as a no problem case and will tell you there is a 98 percent guarantee of no problems, little discomfort and you are home free. They just can't wait to scrub in for an extra surgery at your expense.
Yes, the docs help, but never told me about all the complications. He made it sound like I was going to a day spa.
