Thanks for writing in.

The needle is give to inject local anesthesia and its just a mosquito bite sensation.
When incision is put, it slits the scrotal skin and this can be painful. The scrotal skin is very sensitive and has got many nerve endings.

The healing time for vasectomy procedure is 3 days at most under normal circumstances. Looks like there is a little bit post procedural complication in you. Please have your testis and penis seen by your surgeon and take required treatment. You may have to continue antibiotics and pain killers for a while.

Cramps and joint pain may be due to decreased mobility and not directly related to the procedure.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have undergone vasectomy 3 days back and had severe pain during surgery.
Now you have pain and swelling of the scrotum and bruising of the penis.
Most likely this is due to haematoma in the scrotum which has extended along the facial plane in to penis.
Please consult the surgeon who has carried out the surgery.
You may need to get haematoma evacuated .and take antibiotics and anti inflammatory medication to prevent infection.
