Approx 6 years ago I had a vasectomy, I was given the choice (on the NHS) of having a local or general aneasthetic, So being the hard macho figure of a male that I am, I ran straight for the hills and opted for a general.
I was off work for a week, it was agony. I went for a check up after 3 months, when the sperm samples showed negative. The doctor examined me said thats fine and started to walk off, I told him I was still in quite a lot of discomfort, was this normal, yes yes he said and went into the next room. About a month or two later I ended up in A and E in excruciating pain. I was see by the urologist who diagnosed Epididimo-Orchitis, I was blasted with morphine and antibiotics. The painkillers were reducedover 4 or 5 days to kapake, and I was sent home. Over the next 6 years I have been admitted over 23 times with severe testicular pain. I have had 4 surgical proceedures carried out, including Epididyectomy on both my left side and my right. Although the left side is by far the worst. I have now been told that they cannot cure the pain, only control it. so I take Oramorph (liquid morphine) and tramadol to control the pain. I have sat here with vials of morphine and seriously considered taking the lot, I am at my wits end.
The damage this has caused is unreal, I have lost it with my wife and the kids ( I have 2 boys), I cant play with them, I have lost my job, my self respect, its only the thought of my wife and children keeping me going.
I begged the to cut my testis off, but they said this would not help, I would still be left with the pain and not able to produce hormones. I can't walk properly, my life has gone.
What makes it harder is everyone saying I had it done and was back at work the day after. the urologist said this sort of thing can happen with a visectomy.
No one said this when I was having the snip, oh it's safe, no side effects, no problems. They are having a laugh.
I know better. I have yet to meet anyone with the same problems. In America it's called Post Vasectomy Pain Syndrome I was told once. HELP what can I do? Do I really have to look forward too 20 or 30 more years of this ***l, constantly feeling like I have just been kicked in the balls by a horse? Sounds funny does'nt it? it not
