I wish someone would have told me to ask my doctor about vasectomy side effects. I'd been curious about his response. The more I read on the forum, the more I'm understanding how urologists don't typically warn their patients about PVPS before the procedure. It seems that would be something the patient would want to know about.
I'm not sure if I would have changed my mind, but at least I would have known about it beforehand. Some how, that makes it seem better. We all want to make intelligent decisions and we rely on the experts to help us with those decisions.
Next time you go for a physical or check up, ask your doc if they've ever heard of PVPS. It will be the rare doc who is familiar with it I'm sure.
Anyway, my wife and I were together last night - YEA!! That was about 5 days after my last E.J. I have to say, the pain has been better since my EJ and this morning, I feel pretty good. I do not have pain during sex, thank goodness. There are some on the forum who report pain, which I find unimaginable. The bad thing is my wife is back on the pill after a 10 year lay off. But a small price to pay I guess in comparison to the pain that many men and women have from surgical interventions like vasectomy or hysterectomy.
I just have a little pain when I sit in a scrunched over position in this dreaded computer chair. Otherwise, not much to report. Thank God. I hope I'm in another long cycle of no pain. I can only pray that is the case. God bless you for reading this blog and I pray you don't have to experience the pain many of us face. If you are undecided about having a vasectomy, then read some of these blogs or read on the forum. You'll quickly come to a good decision you can live with.
...if it aint broke, don't fix it.
