It is entirely possible that your router is not allowing traffic from inside your network to pass out and back in through your public IP address.

Check your router's firewall to ensure it's forwarding the port correctly and test it with something that's outside of your LAN - a mobile phone with a data connection (not on your WIFI or connected to your network in some other way). I use that to test these kinds of connections.

You shouldn't have to reinstall openssh every time you want to make an ssh connection.
