I had a vasectomy 8/19. Felt okay after been in denial about my herpes as its in my urethra that hurts the most. Never told Dr. about it before vasectomy. Now around 10/20 I’ve been in real pain in my genital and lower stomach. Will I have permanent nerve damage? Feels like my nerves on both sides twitch. Balls hurt. Hurts to sit in chair.
Been to General Dr. and came clean as well with Urologist. Both said I should heal with time.
I’m just real nervous.
Thanks for your help. Just found this site tonight.

I would say that nothing about herpes would cause you to have the symptoms after your surgery that you are describing. Nothing. Sure hope you start to feel better soon.

I feel like a woke a sleeping lion. I would say I have had a nervous breakdown due to stress at work.
I’m sure this has made my herpes flare. No I’m very concerned about the reactivation. From what I have read the Herpes Virus Simplex 1 has a less chance of that since it was in my body. I believe I have it in both my genital area and mouth. With that being said I have a constant pinching on my right side just right of were my penis is but in my leg type area.
I had a CT scan and nothing unusual showed up.
Could it be the stress triggered my herpes and now I’m just stressing about the worst possible outcome.
Also had a CT of my brain just for precaution.

So it is possible that the surgery would trigger herpes to be more active temporarily. The nerves in the genital area could be irritated. But I believe your surgery was three months ago now. Irritating the nerves in the genital area due to surgery would not last this long, activating herpes. You’ve not reported any lesions. And herpes doesn’t cause testicular pain, so that doesn’t fit. Have you tried taking daily antiviral medicine to see if it helps your symptoms?

Yes I’m taking Acyclovir 400 mg 3 times a day. Have been for about 10/28/2020. The herpes is in my urethra so it hard to tell what’s going on. I have clear fluid so I’m assuming it herpes being activated by peeing more lately due to stress. Today is the first day I fell better however at night and when I sit the backs of my testicles hurt. Wondering if the nerves have anything to do with the outbreak or vascetomy. Will be hard to know probably.
Maybe time will heal this?
Surgery was 8/2019. Since surgery I’ve felt a tingling on back side of my balls that came and went.
Since 10/28/2020 my genital area became very discomforting. I feel like I had an outbreak like no other. I have read it can take 20 days for body to completely get back to normal.
Also thinking my lower abdominal pain came from increase in sex activity. Feels like I may have pulled some muscles down their.
Guess I’m worried about nerve damage.

I don’t know exactly how you know that you have herpes in the urethra – did you have a cystoscopy to identify a lesion inside the urethra?
I don’t feel that your pain is related to your herpes infection.
