Question: Post Vasectomy pain

 spooner - Sat May 30, 2009 9:24 am

18 months ago procedure was performed.
During procedure there was an intense pain while working on the left testical and abdomen.
Abdomenal pain subsided, but pain at base of shaft persists.
A few months after the vasectomy the Urologist said that some pain was normal and would subside in time.
Pain is related to arousal. It almost feels like a cramp at the base on the left side.
It happened yesterday in the morning and subsided around 1 pm.
Also will experience this pain with difficult bowel movement.
