Any man who has had a vasectomy and has horrible pain long after the
vasectomy is another sufferer of PVPS, post vasectomy pain syndrome, a
difficult to treat problem caused by doctors. As many as 33% of men
who undergo vasectomy are believed to have this nasty, long-standing
physical pain problem caused by big changes in anatomy, neurology and
physiology inside the scrotum.
The reason that numbers of vasectomists/urologists never tell men
about this recognized, known problem following a vasectomy is of
course due to the usual greed in US medicine: these deceptive MDs make
lots of money from vasectomies so they really don't want to inform men
of the dreadful pain that can continue for years following vasectomy.
PVPS is both life-ruining and sex-life-ruining. Some
PVPS men can gather up the large amount of money to have a vasectomy
reversal which can end fully or partly the physical pain. But some pay
the large sum of money and fail to get relief from the vasectomy
reversal. [Of course the reversals bring even more money to urologists
who are causing PVPS in the first place!]
For help, join the Yahoo online support group which is run by an MD
who is not a urologist. Go to:

and the Google hits for PVPS:
If you have this horrendous pain many months to years after a
vasectomy, get support, help and information at the above Yahoo group.
There are drug, surgical and injection treatments but the PVPS problem
is a difficult one.
A vasectomy support group!?!
Real men don't get vasectomies.
Hubby did! I handled the birth control until migraines prevented me
from taking the Pill after I had my IUD removed. Our son is 16 and we
didn't want more children, so my husband generously offered to have a
vasectomy. Quick, simple, no problems. One of my older brothers also
chose to have a vasectomy as his family was complete and has
encountered no problems whatsoever!
