I had it done in November. One thing that I would recommend (although too late if you are going in the AM) is that you be put out for it. I opted for being awake with a local and I actually almost passed out from the pain. The feeling of a doctor pulling your vas defrens is inexplicable. No pain meds could prepare you for the feeling as the nerve endings are not where they numb you.

It took a good 72 hours before I could walk without a limp and a week to feel good . Also, the appearance of a third ball is apparently normal (although it scared the #### out of me) and easily treated with an anti-inflammatory pill. Prepare for alot of swelling and black and blue. It looked like a plumb dangling between my legs.

Good luck! Ice it down and report back after

Good heavens. Hopefully the OP didn't read this. Had mine done at the end of December and I'm enjoying the benefits of the procedure already. Almost a non-event pain wise, just some very brief discomfort. Was feeling so good 24 hours later that I had to be careful not to overdo things. It's likely people have different experiences since there are so many urologists out there. :goodposting:

And make sure you support very well for at least a week. I went back to boxers after about 3 days and ended up with some wicked bruising and discomfort.

I remember the morning of my snip. 1st I didn't need to shave! :lmao: As I roll like a baby's behind. 2nd I have never had volume before, I insted to my wife, that I drive to the dr. It was like I was driving drunk. I get to the dr, and I was so drunk feeling, that I through, my ID, and ins. card on the receptionist desk. Then when I get called back, I was so losey lipped. I remember, taking home a paper, that said you would have to wait 7 days before empty the boys, after getting snipped. When the dr was doing his buisness, I said DR. I'm a young guy, I can't go 7 days, with my wife, or with myself. The nurse started laughing so hard. Anyways, It was done on a friday. Saturday, I had to walk around thed New Orleans Convention Center, for a jewerly show, with my wife.

There was no sitting on peas, or anything of that nature. I basically played Xbox 360, all weekend. I was bruised pretty bad. And I let free the 1st batch 5 days later. Made it to 10 times, 20 days later. And took the sample back. My Soldiers where dead. And I now have an empty canon.

Good Luck my friend. Its the greatest....

Hope all went well, and that you're kicking back today with some frozen peas and a Vicodin or two.

I had a vasectomy done about 2 1/2 weeks ago, and it is definitely taking longer for mine to heal than I think most people experience. One side is completely fine, but I'll still feel a shooting sensation about once a day - not really enough to call pain - but enough to know that I had some surgery down there.

I also think that one of my snipped tubes has somehow healed to where the incision was - which is also kind of strange, and it led me to start scouring the internet for potential complications with vasectomies - which is NOT a very good thing to do if you've just had the procedure done.

However, I did find a site that was pretty informative if you have questions about how you're healing, or are wondering if something you're experiencing is "normal" or not.

http://www.vasectomy-information.com/

This is the "Ask the Doctor" section, which I frankly found much more informative than a call to the nurse line at my urologist.

Here's to a speedy recovery! :tinfoilhat:

:bag: Seriously. Some of you guys seem pretty young for a procedure like this that is referred to as "permanent."

Only pain that has been anything remarkable was the shots to numb me up, otherwise just a bit sore.I was happy that I could pee, after that the rest is gravy...

I hope they are not doing this to themselves...at home, with a butter knife...doc on the phone telling you where to start the incision.or another answer...They do this to themselves so that their wives will do dirty dirty dirty things later with no worries about children again.

I had alwasy felt the worst pain I had ever experienced, was the local during a dentist appointment. A "local" into the old boys, is quite a bit more painful, as is a cut made as the local wears off on those same boys.

There usually is one side that is a bit harder to find, or isolate during the procedure, and this is where it will wear off on.

I used ice, and athletic suppoert for the first two days, and then just tightey whities for about two weeks, I would say about a week after the procedure I was walking about like normal, the grin pain on both sides is the worst part. 10-14 days, you will be your old self

1) Take valium2) Don't worry about it3) Plenty of icing4) Don't overdo it5) Take Monday off It's really not much different than a moderate ankle sprain. Swelling, walking wont feel natural for a few days, ice, within 1 week you'll feel a ton better, and within 2 weeks you'll be 100%

My doctor used Fentanyl, not an injection in the boys. Fentanyl was awesome.

From Wikipedia....."Fentanyl is an opioid analgesic with a potency approximately eighty times that of morphine."

Make sure you take the whole weekend and just kick back. You'll feel like getting up and doing stuff but don't. Take the time and heal. I didn't take enough time and regreted it.

Also wait a few days before getting back in the game if you know what I mean. Had a buddy that wanted to test it out the day of. He suggested that I not try that. I was only too happy to take his advice.

Had worse pain when I had my knee drained.

Anyway, worst pain was when you get the local. Got the first shot and said "that wasn't so bad"....lying......Doc says "oh, you have another". :banned:

Peas....rest....all the other stuff posted here. The part about feeling like you've got a grapefruit between your legs....Dead on.

The pain isn't that bad, more "uncomfortable" than actual pain. Most of is the doctor tugging around on the "cords" to burn the tips.

I've been putting this off for the last year . . .

my 3rd child is expected in September.

Now I'm bypassing the Vascectomy completely and getting everything cut off completely.

I'm done.
