After some prodding by my now ex wife, I gave in and had a Vasectomy
11 years ago.
The surgery was not painful at all, it was sort of like going to the dentist for dental work.
It wasn't an enjoyable experience, but there was not a lot of suffering involved.
The pain for me started to develop about 10 days after the vasectomy was complete.
Right around the time most men are close to being fully recovered, I started to fell a dull, throbbing ache in both of my Testicles.
Hoping that it was a temporary symptom, I rode it out, expecting the pain to dissipate after a while.
After living with it for 2 or 3 weeks, I went back to the doctor to have him check it out.
He said the problem was most likely testicular back pressure, and said that it would work itself out
Well, here I am 11 years later, and the problem has not worked itself out.
I'll admit, the pain has diminished somewhat, but not completely.
I now live full time with this dull ache, that never seems to go away.
I haven't had any problems with painful ejaculation, but contrary to popular belief, the size of myejaculations
did decrease substantially.
I also feel deep down in my gut that andropause symptoms
have hit me sooner than they would have if I had not had the surgery.
Due to everything discussed above, I'd have to say that getting the vasectomy was not the right decision.
My sex life has suffered, as well as my vitality, and my overall enjoyment of life.
I almost feel like I'm too old to get a vasectomy reversal,
so I'll probably just live with this from here on out.
Anyway, it's nice to see a forum where this issue can be discussed openly, and I'm glad I was able to add my 2 cents.
I'm not the kind of person who feels comfortable telling others what to do, so I'll just leave it at that.
Thank you very much for taking the time to tell your story here, I appreciate it.
Good luck to you!
