My wife drove me home and I was a little weak in the knees that night but I had a script for percoset if I needed it. You need to do nothing foe 2-3 day's but sit on the couch and relax. I did encounter the swelling but I think it was a result of my daughter jumping on my lap OUCH! After 3 day's I was back to normal and no pain at all. It does take about 20-30 ejaculations to get your sperm count to zero, which wasn't a bad thing! lol. I had to bring in 2 samples to the lab and in 5 weeks, I had a zero sperm count! Yippee, the result is great, we have 2 kids, a boy and a girl and we were done. It will suck for a few days but well worth it inmo. Hope this helps. Good luck bro
You've pretty much heard it all now. Make sure you have nothing planned for a couple of days besides couch potatoing. Use ice at least for the first day, all day, even if you don't feel too bad. Procedure is not bad, discomfort only, very little pain in my case. The discomfort was like when you see someone take a shot to the nards and you have simpathy nard pain for them. Mine lasted into that night, then was done.
I did make the mistake of going to a party for a friend's kid that Sat. After a full day of messing around and tracking kids, I felt it that night. Other than that, pretty uneventful. Certainly no real pain, no swelling, no blue balls, etc. for me.
They gave me scripts for all kinds of drugs, for before: muscle relaxers, antibiotics, pain med; for after: antibiotics and pain meds. Only thing I ever took were the antibiotics. When I went in, they asked if I took all my meds, told them only the antibiotics. They asked why, I told them I know what your going to do, how your going to do it (Internet is a great thing), and what I should expect, so I am already relaxed and I don't feel any pain yet. Never did need any of the pain meds.
Oh yea, if you are a brief man, don't plan on wearing them for a few days afterward. Part of my "party pain" was due to wearing my undies that day and it was too soon!
