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.
Not sure what u mean: Epididymectomy is a surgical operation to remove the epididymis, which is the organ located posterior to the testicle within the scrotum. It is typically performed by urologists to treat pain, epididimitis, or neoplasms of the epididymis.
Rare: This a rare but reported complication of epididymal surgery. Please discuss specifically and thoroughly with your surgeon about his particular outcomes when it comes to this surgery.

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

Since a vasectomy isn't 100% at preventing unintended pregnancies would a caudual epididymectomy be more effective?
What is the most effective treatment for post vasectomy pain? Spermatocelectomy and epididymectomy. Or vasectomy reversal. Vasectomy in 1996.
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.

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.See 1 more doctor answer
