Sometimes you can get a form of epididymitis even years post vasectomy from sperm leaks. You can try antibiotics although it usually doesn't help as this kind is non infectious. In fact, in the good old days a vasectomy was sometimes done supposedly to prevent infection from travelling upstream from the prostate to the epididymis. Not done anymore, though, or at least very rarely. I sometimes think historically this was used as an excuse to sneak vasectomies into Catholic Hospitals! Hah!
I sound like a salesman, but if you are unlucky enough to develop an epididymitis this is another great reason to ride a recumbent. Seriously...
