    Well, I am now sitting on my couch with a pack of frozen peas on my sack. Vasectomy is done and I must say it wasn't nearly as bad as I anticipated. You guys were right, anticipation was worse than the actual procedure.

    Hopefully a weekend of taking it easy and I will be back to normal

    I had one no problem. Things changed in life and wife wanted another had it reversed. Now that's pain. i would rather get shot by a gun then go thru that again. I was awake for most of it, just on a lot of drugs, think i passed out when looked and saw a man jewel hanging out. needless to say if get a vas make sure you want no more kids.

    I had a very similar experience. My regular GP doc said he was trained and would be glad to snip me in office. Did it on a Wednesday. Took it easy the rest of the day and back to work Thursday. Lots of pain and swelling by the afternoon. Toughed it out overnight with ice. Started for work on Friday. Changed my mind. Called the doc's office. He doesn't work Fridays anymore. Nurse said to keep icing them. My wife came home at lunch. Said the left one was grapefruit size and very dark, almost black, in color. Decided a trip to the ER was a worthy investment! I stood up for the first time! Ripping pain once gravity kicked in. I crumpled. She and a neighbor got me in the car. I rode a gurney into the ER. 8 days in the hospital. The first day in ICU. The black sack and grapefruit sized nads had 'em worried!

    My GP visited me on Monday while the hospital urologist was in my room. The urologist treated the GP like a dog that just stole his steak! Urologist explained how rare it was to get an infection inside of the vas deferins. I didn't feel lucky. Had to cut me again. General anesthesia this time. All better now and all functions work like originally issued!

    My next door neighbor is a lawyer. He asked if I wanted to go after the GP. I said I didn't but wasn't looking forward to the hospital bills. He talked with the doc one day. I never got a bill for anything from the hospital!

    Moral of the story - go to a doctor that specializes in cutting on your weiner! Should have no problems.

    Wow, all the horror stories make me cringe. I am now a week post op and feel fine. A little bruising and that's really it. Sounds like I got lucky

    I chose the doc based on some personal recommendations and the fact that they do the vas in the OR Aulthough I was totally awake

    Too much shit to list.... See "My Build" page
    I refused to do it. Yep... I'm a fireman and I'm scared of having my nuts cut on I'll freely admit to it. I've heard (and seen... I'll get to that in a min) way too many bad stories. My wife ended up having one of her ovaries removed and then had her other tube tied because of compilations so that let me off the hook.

    My best friend had his cut about 10 years ago and he said it was hell. He could feel them tugging on the tubes as they cut them. He said it felt as if those tubes were connected to the inside of his neck it hurt so bad. To make matters worse he came back to work and the first night he was back we had a fire. Our fire poles were 33' tall and as he hit the pole one of his nuts came out.... it came OUT... it came the MOTHERFUCK OUT!!!!!

    After witnessing that traumatic event I vowed to never have my boys messed with if at all possible. They work just fine and I'd kind of like to keep it that way.

    I had mine done 10 yrs or so ago & it was an easy outpatient surgery that did not hurt to bad, was simple & I was happy to get it done. I have had no issues since it was done so it was well worth it.

    I had it done 4 years ago. Zero issues. I think an ingrown toenail removal is 10x worse!

    Congrats op for your piece of mind you now have and successful procedure!

    I had the snip performed in 2011. Not really a big deal. Anticipation was the worst part. They gave me 2 Valium to take 1 hour before. I literally slept through it. Rested for 2 days solid then back on my feet. I was a little sore for about a week and a half. Went back to work and found out the elevator was broke. Had to make a bunch of trips from the 3rd to 11th floor using the stairs. That kinda sucked but helped with the soreness. I should've had it done when I was 18.
