Is it common for long term complications or pain to result from a full epididymectomy? Or is the procedure considered safe?

Low grade pain.: There should be little problem especially if this is to treat epididymitis. The procedure is safe and no long term complication as usual. There is always a small chance but most of the time people do well.

Yes - on that side: Removing the epididymis is functionally like having a vasectomy. The pathway and flow of sperm from the testis is interrupted. If both sides are removed then that man would be sterile.

Wanted to know if anyone has had experience with an epididymectomy for chronic epididymitis or for post vasectomy problems?

Wanted to know if anyone has had experience with an epididymectomy for chronic epididymitis or for post vasectomy problems?

Yes, . ..: For intractable pain with identifiable tenderness and induration in epididymis, epididymectomy can be done for pain relief after properly counseled and examined with realistic expectation. For post-vasectomy pain, vasectomy reversal has been proposed to effectively relive its pain for many. More? Contact me at www. HealthTap. Com/dr-Lin with RQPWJC to log in for appointments.

Since a vasectomy isn't 100% at preventing unintended pregnancies would a caudual epididymectomy be more effective?

Since a vasectomy isn't 100% at preventing unintended pregnancies would a caudual epididymectomy be more effective?

Probably not: If you have no sperm in your ejaculate after vasectomy, there is almost no chance of impregnating a female. There is a slight chance of the vas reconnecting after a vas. To be safe you could do a sperm count in a year.

Depends on severity: Usually, we recommend simple non-steroidal anti-inflammatory therapies like Ibuprofen or Aleve (naproxen) to be taken on an as-needed basis. If the pain is constant, make an appointment with the urologist or physician who performed the procedure. They may order an ultrasound to evaluate the anatomy. Hope you feel better soon.

Is shaving risk-free?

Is shaving risk-free?

Mostly: If you use clean shavers and stick to your own without borrowing them, it is pretty much safe. There is a risk in those with very curly hair that close shaving may cause the hair to grow into the skin causing focal pustules and diffuse acne. There is no harm in having the hairs cut off by shaving except perhaps under the taliban.
