Bladder neck surgery

  I had bladder neck surgery when I was 2 years old, because I was having difficulty passing urine,  as a consequence I now experience retrograde ejaculation. I imagine I feel the same experience in terms of an orgasm,except that my sperm goes back into the bladder. This makes for a less messy sexual experience,but is not great for the male ego. It also is a bit uncomfortable if I have a full bladder.
  I am now 35 and have gone to the urologists over the years and they say it could be reversed, but obviously not risk free. There is small chance of incontinence or at the worst impotence.
  Do you have any knowledge of men in my situation that have had reconstructive surgery and if so, what are the success rates?
  Thank you,
  Michael

If this fails, then you still may have children with some assistance from fertility specialists. The sperm can be recovered from your urine or taken directly from your testicle and intrauterine insemination can be performed
Most men with retrograde ejaculation have normal orgasmic sensation. I don
