Dr. Parekattil is the best! My neurolysis procedure was 100% successful in eliminating all pain without affecting any other sense or sensation of touch in the area. The recovery was limited to mild discomfort – far less than the vasectomy itself. The people at Shands were great and my insurance applied, which would not have been true with reversal.
The most difficult part of the choice between reversal and neurolysis is that, as guys, we want to fix things, so a reversal seems like the right approach because it puts the pipes back together. But the data doesn’t support it as a solution: 60-70% success rate with reversal vs 90% on the first try with neurolysis.
