Vasectomy scars

Vasectomy scars

Well some of you know that my vasectomy had a small problem. The stitch on one of the vas tubes had gotten tethered to the inner skin of my scrotum. I had to go back 2 weeks post vas and have the doc go in and free it up.

Now I’ve got a larger puncture wound and an additional small one (which is healing better than the original one).

But I still feel something underneath that resembles a tube (though it’s not nearly as pronounced as it was before). I tried to tell the doc about it, but we couldn’t find it during the follow up exam.

Now, 4 weeks post vas, the swelling has pretty much gone, but the original puncture wound which was reopened to free up the vas tube seems open, it’s not oozing but it’s like a little crevice in the skin. Under the skin it’s hard about 1/4 inc circumfrence. The hard tube is not so hard but it’s there, I can feel it.

My questions are:

1. Is the hardeining under the skin of the puncture wounds normal and will they go away?

2. Does taking L-arginine help reduce or cause the hardened scar tissue underneath the wound to grow larger?

Any medical experts and Vasectormy vets, please reply.

Oh Man, sorry you had to go back. Bad enough doing that once, then having to go back and have more work.

I would call the Doctor, 4 weeks is a long time for something to heal.

It’s healing, but slowly. The doc said anytimeyou reopen a wound it will take longer. There’s no more bleeding, and actually it’s 2 weeks since he went in the second time.

I still would like to know if those hard things under the skin should disappear completely or will I have to learn to live with them?

Still cringing for you.

I have a slight visual scar, but it’s all smooth.

Wait six weeks. The swelling and hard areas are within normal limits for healing tissues.

Thanks WESTLA,

after six weeks, should there be no more hardness under the skin?

I was worried a little about that, but it turned out well for me. Just let it heal!

Don’t take six weeks as an absolute, but by then most, if not all, of the hardness should be gone.
