Duke, I have pressure and pain and burning and numbness so high up on my left cord that I believe I may have one and I had a diagnosis no super conclusive of a possible small hernia on the left.

Top of page, responsive. Posts Latest Activity. Page of 1. Filtered by:. Previous Next. I am writing on behalf of my husband. My husband got a vasectomy at the end of September and has had nothing but issues since, specifically a lot of groin pain issues.
Because of his pain, we've seen many doctors. He has had a few doctors tell him he has a hernia although an ultrasound came back negative. His pain is all in his inguinal area, specifically to the left and slightly higher than the base of his penis. If this area is pushed, he feels a deep ache that is painful. There also seems to be a bulge there or softness. He can feel it, although I've tried to feel it and can't. He has pain in this area if he is on his feet all day he works in construction , he gets pain when he lifts anything heavy feels it deep in the groin and this pain will continue to ache after he lifts heavy things for a while, he also has pain when bending over and if he sits forward and puts pressure on his stomach.
Because he is in construction, it does not surprise me he does have a hernia but I find it very coincidental that he never had any pain or issues with his groin pre-vasectomy. I've looked into a lot of information about genito-femoral also ilioinguinal l nerve damage, and that this nerve damage can occur from a vasectomy because of the genital branch descending into the scrotum. I've also looked into referred pain, that this pain could originate from the genitals and refer to the groin.
Further, some symptoms of genito-femoral neuralgia is pain during bending, sitting and lifting. Obviously these symptoms mirror hernia pain as well. I know this type of nerve damage can occur after inguinal hernia repair surgery so I thought this is information you may be able to answer.
I'm also wondering if hernia pain can continually ache or hurt for a prolonged time period after heavy lifting. For example, my husband shoveled snow yesterday, he could feel the pain upon lifting the shovel and the ache continued through last night. He does not have pain while sleeping at all.
Can hernia pain can occur during sitting. Like stated, this is not in his seat or his genitals but in his groin. The pain all radiates from the same area. I'm concerned that he is moving forward with the hernia diagnosis but that his issues may be referred pain and not from a hernia but instead from the vasectomy.
I appreciate your time in responding. Tags: None. Look into the Genital Branch nerve. If ultrasound came back negative don't worry about a hernia.

I had a variocele surgery where they also have to manipulate the spermatic cord and 3 days after surgery developed a inguinal hernia.
My theory is that there was probably some weakeness there or maybe a asymptomatic small hernia that the area was made weaker due to the cuttin into the groin. So it's certainly possible that the surgery caused oa hernia or exasperated a condition that was not noticeable or symptomatic.
If there is concern for a hernia and there's no obvious bulge then a CT scan of his abdomen is reasonable while doing a valsalva maneuver.

Heres a little article I found. Post vasectomy pain syndrome remains one of the more challenging urological problems to manage.

Postulations include damage to the scrotal and spermatic cord nerve structures via inflammatory effects of the immune system, back pressure effects in the obstructed vas and epididymis, vascular stasis, nerve impingement, or perineural fibrosis.
Vasectomy can cause this pain depending on where the vas was divided. If divide at the testicle common then its very unlikely this explains his pain.
A vasectomy performed near the testicles and mid groin would be nearly impossible to unroof or cause an inguinal hernia. Hernia can cause the same pain.
Hernia and a post vasectomy patient could cause this pain. Vasectomy can injury genital branch of GFN. If vasectomy is performed near the inguinal external ring it could affect the ilioinguinal and genital branch of GFN which can cause similar symptoms..

If this takes care of his pain one could consider resection of the genital nerve and vasa vasorum of the vas deferens during an open inguinal hernia repair. He should see someone familiar with groin pain, mesh removal, etc before proceeding with a hernia repair.
