7. Any other advice? do your research

I'm mostly scared of things I've read about long-term health problems:

-- Would the "closed end" prevent the sperm from "leaking" into his body and causing the alleged immune problems?
-- People who get the "closed end" report more pain, so maybe the "open end" wouldn't lead to painful, um, buildup?

Thank you so much!
I answered in red. There are quite a bit of complications possible. I would also urge you to check on the real failure rates of V. During a major pg scare I had after the V I discovered that failure rates are higher than the docs report. And so are the post V complications. Knowing what I know now, I would not opt for the V again.

Just after the surgery it didn't actually hurt that much. He spent the day on the couch with some frozen peas and that was all. It was about a year later it started to hurt. Intermittently at first, then a dull ache for a long time. Then the lumps appeared. Sometimes it's a sharp stabbing pain he says. A few months ago we think he had epidymitis (sp?). It was reallly really painful and swollen huge. It went away on it's own after about a month of that. So it's not severe all the time an it wasn't severe at first. It gets severe on occasion. Every once in a while, he'll wince out in pain and say his testicle hurts.
