I had a vasectomy while on active duty. I have had recurrent epididymis problems ever since. I submitted a claim with the VA, but they have denied it. Their reason was because this was an elective surgery. I have been on numberous courses of antibiotics and injections. I recently had surgery to remove my epididymis. My doctor found that an ongoing infection had formed into a pus ball/cyst. He felt that this was due to the vasectomy that I received. Any advice would be appreciated..
