Post vasectomy pain syndrome-Myth?

This real phenomenon in my experience happens rarely, but it happens. There are reports that show that doing a reversal has been dramatically beneficial.

The reversal surgeon however cannot assure that there will be resolution of symptoms if a reversal is done. This should weigh heavily in the decision making process of the patient wanting to pursue this.

I will mention that I performed a reversal on a man who wanted children but also felt he had PVPS. He wrote me after the procedure stating that he had had complete resolution of his pain and was very pleased.

Here are several links on the discussion of this:
