Vasectomy


Jason Racca
 

Hi all,

I have a patient that is looking into a vasectomy and asked me
Some questions regarding any potential complications or restrictions from this. Admittedly, not as familiar woth complications from this procedure. Any insight on this?

Speaking from experience, ok not actually mine, but my hubby's... it was, "Simple and easy," per his words. My hubby reported some "tightness" afterwards and he did have a small restriction that caused him light discomfort when being upright. This was relieved by wearing a jockstrap or supportive briefs, but when he let the boys loose it was uncomfortable. Thank goodness he knew a VM therapist who was willing to do some work below the belt, LOL. 
I did a local listening at the site, followed the pull into scar tissue at the superior end of the vas deferens, and did some VM release via direction of ease and then tension. He felt better right away and symptoms didn't come back. VM worked great for it, not sure I am going to start marketing myself for this though ;-)

Complications are uncommon, but do occur.  “No-cut” vasectomies are less intrusive and theoretically have less potential for complications.  Traditional vasectomies are more involved, with scalpel cuts through the scrotum, withdrawal and severing of the vas, the ends sutured and/or cauterized, and then the scrotum closed.  Post-vasectomy pain syndrome (PVPS) is experienced by a number of patients, with survey/study results varying from 2% to 5% to 33%, so I guess one could say that there aren’t very good numbers to go by.

Vasectomies can present complications. There are different types of vasectomies, ranging from minimally invasive “no-cut” to more invasive ones where the vas is exposed, cut, and the ends are cauterized and sutured shut before being replaced and the incision closed.  Post-vasectomy pain syndrome (PVPS) is a chronic and sometimes debilitating issue.  Depending on the study or survey you read, 1% - 33% of men have some chronic discomfort post-vasectomy.

Such a wonderful thing that you are so willing to take the time to make comments and help out. 

Wouldn't it be even more wonderful if you would sign your posts so we could all stay more connected in this disconnected world we live in.

Over the years I have worked with a number of men who came in for either knee or hip issues. GL/LL would go to the prostate or vas (usually the R one), and there would be pelvic floor tension. When I would asked about it I would find that most of them had had a vasectomy. I realize this is very unscientific evidence, but it reinforces Nicole's point that anybody would be well advised to check in with a visceral therapist after a vasectomy (given an appropriate time for healing after the procedure).

Hello Ron,
I am looking for a Barral therapist  in the Long Island or Queens, NY area who practices all the Barral modalities and 
would be a good fit for a 17 year old dancer with an apparent achilles problem. 
Due to her foot pain she has not been able to dance or participate in sports since December.
I checked the IAHP directory with no luck, and my computer will not let me go to the Barral website.
Thank you,
Carol Hoy, LMT
