Denervation for PVPS

There has been a lot of chatter about denervation to help with the PVPS symptoms of pain lately. I will be looking for some articles about this surgery and posting a summary here in the next few days.

In a nutshell, denervation is a surgery that cuts away all or part of the nerves found in the spermatic cord that innervate your scrotum and penis. The thought is this, the pain will cease if the message cannot be sent to the brain.

Sounds reasonable, but there are always downsides, as I've spoken before. This procedure isn't always effective, there are other side-effects, etc.

Stay tuned and I'll hopefully be able to find something good to report here shortly.
