Urination problems: 3 years post vasectomy

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi I’m new to this forum so forgive me if not appropriate to post but I’ve hit a brick wall & am trying to get answers.

I had a vasectomy about 3 years ago , 7 children later we didn’t want anymore & everyone I knew that had had it, swore by it & have never had problems ... anyway 1 week after surgery I was hit with an almighty infection down ther so the docs threw antibiotics at it & that was it. Since then I’ve gone back to the doctors several times as it feels like I’m dribbling constantly but I’m actually not, I have a slightly sore left testicle every now & then, I urinate a lot more, hard to start urinating,pain up my bum every now & then & it basically feels like a uti but that comes back negative, I’m constantly on antibiotics & that helps me urinate normally without forcing it , like it’s relaxed but the symptoms never completely go away , I was rushed into hospital last year , horrendously high temperature etc but they couldn’t find the infection but my infection markers were through the roof, so they just kept pumping me full of all antibiotics & said it’s possibly a kidney infection 3 weeks to recover ..... help

    Hi James, I'd suggest looking looking into a pelvic floor therapist. I also had some success with marshmallow root tea - sounds weird, but it seemed to help with frequent urination feeling.  In addition to that, check out this forum: http://www.postvasectomypain.org

    A lot more active users on there and many have described issues similar to yours and may be able to offer additional insight. Good luck!
