In brief: Rare
This is a rare complication <1%.
Can be sudden and painful occuring in the first few days. You get +++swelling. Many urologists will suggest surgical drainage to speed up recovery, but waiting for your body to absorb the blood is an option too... Though you might get frustrated with this. Take it easy and use ice for the first few days after vasectomy to decrease the risk.
