    I had a vasectomy 10 days ago, same type described on Dr. Karpman’s website. All normal pain I’ve read about has gone away, except for a tingling sensation in the scrotum area. It normally occurs after sitting for awhile, when I stand up, the scrotum gets a tingling sensation. Much like a limb that fell asleep and then you move it and there’s a tingling feeling. A few days after the surgery, the sensation was very strong, now I’d rate it as mild. I called the Drs office and the nurse had never heard of that before and asked me to come in, which worried me. Please advise.

    During any surgical procedure where an incision or penetration through the skin is made, there is always the risk of damaging some cutaneous nerves that innervate the surrounding skin area. Vasectomy is no different in this regard, even if a no-scalpel technique is used. Many patients who have other surgical procedures oftentimes describe such a sensation around the incision. The tingling usually is described as mild, as in this case, but can take up to 6 months to resolve. However, most such instances will resolve much quicker.
