RE: Surf's status report - Introduction
Hello guys!

I agree with Surf with one thing and one thing only, and that is that this surgery is nothing you should take lightly.

I agree with you albert when you say that your recovery from other injuries were harder (like knee-inhjuries and sholder-injuries etc) BUT this injuries location make it very frustrating.

Even if many of you guys that have been operated by meyers have improved your condition and have less pain and are more athletic now so can it still be problems with the surgery.
In countless studies it is proved that inguinal surgery lowers your spermcount and testosterone-levels. And from what I have seen in this thread Meyers surgery seem to be the surgery that most often result in "blue swollen scrotum and genitals" and even if it is not so bad, even if it resolves by itself after 7-8 weeks it is still not good for your fertility and testo-levels.
I am not talking about failed surgerys now with testicular artrophys and loss of your ball(s). I am talking about maybe loss of 25% of your testolevel and spermcount.

And please don´t get me wrong! I am gonna have this surgery myself, but I have already banked my sperms (did it last week), I have children but me and my wife may want more children.
And if have calculated the risks and sideeffects and also the gains with the operations and for me, who suffers really bad (not as bad as Albert did but pretty bad) the answer is clear I need the operations.

But if I would function normally in my dailly life and the only time that I had pain was when I played soccer wiyh my friends, then I would seriosly think about if it is worth it. You only have one body.

I like to wake up in the mornings with a hard on and feel viril and masculin. BUT if this surgery will make my testis produce only 85% of the hormones that they did before then that is a risk I am willing to take in the situation I am in know. Beacuse I can´t enjoy my sexlife anyway beacause of the pain. Hope I haven´t offended anyone but I am from Europe and we talk alittle lore open about sex and problems related to that which I think is a good thing. But not to much of course!!
