What happens during vasectomy reversal?

  • Vasectomy reversal is performed under general anaesthetic
  • The procedure takes between 1 hour - 1.5 hours
  • During a vasectomy the vas deferen tubes are cut preventing sperm from leaving the epididymis (storage area)
  • To reverse this procedure your surgeon will locate the site of your vasectomy
  • They will usually make cuts on each side of your scrotum
  • After examining each testicle they will free up the tubes and remove any scar tissue
  • Using a special microscope they will stitch the ends of the tubes back together
  • They will close the surgical wounds with stitches.

After your vasectomy reversal surgery at our Chester Hospital

  • You should be able to go home on the same day of your procedure
  • You should arrange for someone to pick you up from hospital
  • Take over the counter pain relief such as Paracetamol if you have any discomfort
  • You should avoid any strenuous activity or heavy lifting for at least 3 weeks after your surgery
  • Gentle walking may speed your recovery
  • Please discuss any return to work with your consultant
  • About 6-8 weeks after your surgery you will need to return to our clinic to give a semen sample and we will examine the sample for sperm
  • If no sperm are present or your sperm count is very low we may ask you to return for another test at a later date.

General complications could include:

  • Pain
  • Infection in the surgical wound
  • Bleeding

Specific complications of vasectomy reversal:

  • Long term pain
  • Bleeding within the scrotum
  • Damage to blood vessel
  • Scar tissue causing the tubes to block
  • Failure to restore fertility.
