?I my self am on 25mg a hour of morphine sulphate via patch and liquid , pregablin,paracetomol,anti sickness,anda aray of things like tens machine ,I have had a nerve block for over a month and still failing to do my part as a dad of 5 kids,

    Had PvP for 6yrs now and getting ready to make decision for bilateral orchiectomy.

    Don't build your breath waiting for NHS or GP to read this or even its chance of reading.

    It isn't in their interests to change how they do things out how they advise of risks.

    GP surgeries perform vasectomy now under the guise of GPwSI, GP with Special Interest - this means they get paid extra every time they perform a snip

    If they were to advise of true risks (NHS figure 10% / globally up to 43%) of chance of pain then no-one would have it done

    They gain the cash payment whilst then passing problem back to NHS proper. GP's are NOT NHS Drs, they are private practice who contract to NHS and therefore gain from the issue.

    Until there's a major review and enforced long term follow up of patients (costing money) then nothing will change and they'll keep inflicting pain on unsuspecting patients who naively believe and trust Dr's.

    Before I had pvp I was an organ donor and blood donor.

    After what can only be described as a farce where I did not receive my appointment (who with this condition would not turn up or call?) I was offered more surgery to cut more away.

    i only signed up to some pipes being cut, not something that meant it was irreversible. (I obviously don’t want more children)

    i opted for a private reversal, that way I could explore the other options if that did not work. I am lucky I I could afford it and am now pain free, but it took some time.

    Needless to say when the blood team rang up asking me to donate again they got a mouthful. 

    I am am no longer on any donation list and my children have been given strict instructions that my organs cannot be used (unbeknown to them my will has a clause that rights them out if they disobey)

    I will never ever trust a doctor again. I visit only when I absolutely have to and a hope I get to my parents age without the need for the services of a surgeon.

    Ps .. I was married to a doctor and heard too many stories where things had gone wrong. 

    If it is not in the notes, then it did not happen as far as the nhs and law are concerned. Make sure you document everything, and if you disagree make sure you put your complain issue in writing and keep a copy of everything in an organised state.

    6 years here with PVPS.

    Tried all sorts, surgery, botox injections, drugs.

    Im also on testosterone replacement due to the damage.

    Given up finding pain relief. There is no cure for the pain. Started splitting my Testosterone gel dose to twice a day to possibly reduce the night pain.
