Are you suffering from post vasectomy pain syndrome on a daily basis?
Published on by Yorkshire Vasectomy Reversal Clinic
Symptoms can vary from a dull ache to an intensely crippling pain affecting testicles and can severely affect your sex life.
Our results for treatment of post vasectomy pain syndrome
We have had requests from our customers regarding figures, in terms of: numbers performed for pain; success rate in
alleviating pain and the degree to which the pain had been alleviated by a microsurgical vasectomy reversal.
These men have been selected as having had their vasectomy
no more than 5 years previously (which increases their chance of a successful reversal), of having pain limited
to the epididymis and of not having any previous history of wound pains or neuralgia (further surgery usually
makes these men's pain worse). If the time interval was more than 5 years an epididymectomy was usually offered.
Spermatic cord blocks have also been used when other methods have failed.
Our initial results were that 14 men had a complete disappearance of their pain and a further 2 had a significant
improvement in their pain at review 3 months after surgery, however, pain returned in 2 patients, 1 of whom
went on to have a successful epididymectomy. These results are similar to those in a number of published series.
If you decide you would like to see me to discuss the procedure and the alternatives please feel free to make an
appointment to see us or by telephoning on 01482 672496.
