Had it done 13 years ago when my twin boys were 2 y/o. No regrets. Played pool that night with a frozen bag of pea's in my shorts. Very little pain and I was hmmm , 'back in the saddle' in about 4 days if I recall correctly.

There is nothing to it. I had it done last year on a Friday about 11:00 am. I sat around the house that night, the next day I was out boating, no skiing though. Never looked back since. Have heard horror stories though of guys swelling up like grapefruit after.:(

On another note, my uncle had it done and has a kid to prove it. :rolleyes: It didn't work, and yes, the kid is his.

First of all, yes, I had it done appr. 7 years ago and have no regrets. I have heard the stories about how it didn't hurt from some guys but in my case it was very painful for about 20 minutes per side. I drove myself home in a snowstorm, put a bag of ice where it counts and drank an entire bottle of red wine.
This is a funny story. The week prior to my procedure, I was in a meeting with customers in Minneapolis and during dinner one of the guys started telling us about his future marriage to a younger woman who wanted children. He was quite a bit older and was divorced and already had the big 'V". It turns out that he had the same doctor as I did and had it reversed. $5,000 and it's micro surgery!
Point is, be sure because you are not guaranteed that the reversal will be successful.
But again I say, pain and all, it was worth it. ;)

I've never had a vasectomy, but I've done many. Here's my take FWIW. Note that it's not exactly a politically correct point of view.

Yes, a scrotal hematoma is a distinct possibility, and that represents ongoing discomfort for weeks. There is also a possibility of loss of one testicle (or both if you're really unlucky). Under the best of circumstances, it's 3-7 days of discomfort which will impair most physical activity. Additionally, note that you aren't sterile right away - birth control must be used for 6-8 weeks after the vasectomy, or until a semen sample (yes, you will have to provide at least a couple of these over a few months) show no sperm cells.

OTOH, a laparoscopic tubal sterilization for a women is a 10 minute procedure with negligible discomfort, return to all normal activities the next day, sterile right away, significantly lower complication risk than vasectomy.

The failure rate is basically the same for either procedure.

Setting equality issues aside, a tubal makes more sense than vasectomy for a couple IMHO. Now, this is speaking strictly objectively. Subjective issues, such as "I had the babies, you can get the sterilization" are valid within a relationship context and I won't argue those. I'm only speaking from a medical standpoint - tubal for the woman is a better choice.

I imagine at some point I will get a "V". but Ms. UMP says she wants to get married and pollute the earth with our DNA first!:D

Go for it Staristar! Normally I would offer to do any type of easy surgery for you cheaper as I dabbled in taxidermy and I am an engineer, so in some third world countries I think that qualifies me as a "doctor". But in this case, I wont offer. I dont get into trimming the twig and berries. :cool:

I had my FIRST vasectomy two years ago last June. I was required to submit two "samples" after the procedure. The first after 4 weeks and 20 shots across the bow. It was clear of any swimmers. The second sample was 4 weeks after that and 20 shots across the bow again...

My second sample had "a few swimmers", so they asked me to submit a third sample after another 4/20. The third sample had 1.5 MILLION swimmers, so they deemed the procedure a true failure.

I went in for my SECOND vasectomy about two months later. I submitted three samples after the second procedure, and they were all clear.

You may want to consider this: In my first vas. the doc cut the vas deferentia (latin plural), did NOT remove a short segment, and only cauterized one open end (the one farthest from the boys). This, according to him, is to prevent granuloma (leakage which causes an inflammatory reaction). This is the currently accepted practice for vasectomy.

In the second procedure, he didn't want the chance of having another failure, so he cut a 1-2cm section of vas out and cauterized both open ends. So far, I've had no problems.

As far as the procedure goes, I felt searing pain during most of the 30 minutes. The doc used nearly 130cc of local anesthetic to numb the area, but in my case, it didn't get it all. At one point, he clamped onto something with some mosquito forceps, and I nearly went through the ROOF :eek3: Even the people outside the room heard me on that one...I'm not trying to dissuade you from having this done, just trying to prepare you for what you MIGHT feel...

I can make the following two recommendations:

1. After the procedure...ICE, ICE, ICE. And just when you think you've had enough...MORE ICE!!!

2. Even though your doc may only require ONE sample post-op (Which is the standard at Kaiser), make sure you supply two samples. Had I not supplied the second sample, I would have though I was shooting blanks.

Enjoy;)

I've never done a vasectomy reversal. But you're correct - the success rate is somewhere between 30-60%, typically.

Not an uncommon story taking each part individually, but to put them all together in one patient represents some rather bad luck.

Removing a segment of vas is pretty standard. Yes the procedure does tend to hurt. The local anesthetic tends to be MOSTLY successful, but its administration itself hurts - a sharp pinch to anesthetize the skin, then insert the needle to infiltrate local anesthetic around the vas deferens, which feels like getting kicked HARD in the balls for a couple of seconds. Have to do all this twice - once on each side. If the anesthetic doesn't take well on one or either side, cutting and cauterizing does definitely tend to hurt.

At one point, he began to cauterize one open end, and a shot of pain went all the way up my back to my neck! I think I nearly broke all the bones in my wifes hands I was squeezing them so hard...

The assistant nearly jumped out of her skin, and her eyes were as big as saucers!...The doc simply said "you felt that????" and gave me more anesthesia...

Best 20 minutes of my life. Not painfull, but "wierd" feeling. I would highly suggest 2 weeks of couch time with a few bags of peas. I tried to milk (pardon the pun) my level of pain as much as possible to the wife so I would not have to do anything but lay on the couch and watch sports. It worked.

I had a buddy that after 3 days decided he wanted to go for a dip in his hot tub - WRONG MOVE. His twin lima beans swelled up to size of golf balls.

Best of all, no one can EVER say your the father of my kid after you get this little procedure done. Well worth the pain and time.

I had it done in the spring. Actual procedure was extremely painful. Felt like my boys were in a vice - & the doc was barely touching them. He asked if I wanted more numbing - I told him I can handle the pain, since he already had 1 done :firejump: . Entire procedure only took 10 minutes. Do yourself a favor - & shave before you go in. The nurse got out this mid-evil looking disposable razor....:cry: I said - no thanks, it's already done (whew.... glad I was prepared).

That was nothing though..... The dissolvable stitches I had in each side got infected & swelled up my sac the size of a grapefruit. After 2 weeks I finally found a tiny piece of stitch on each side & yanked them out. Was back to normal 2 days later.

So - if you decide to get 'er done.... be sure that you get enough numbing juice.

After 3 kids I had it done 14 years ago and it was painless, But I never went back to get checked.........(you know where this is heading). 3 years later I divorced and Married a younger woman with no kids. We saw that bill board between Houston and San Antonio and started talking about a reversal, then BAM here comes Josh man. WOW did I get lucky...... Ether the Doc did a poor job or the Mail man saved me 6,000 dollars. ether way I was happy. now we are talking about me getting cut again.

Word of advice..... follow the doc's instructions

My running Buddy at the time had it done also and felt so good the next day he went out and cut his grass with a push mower:o ...He didn't get off the couch for 2 weeks after that, can you say grape fruit:rolleyes:

Somewhat related subject, but not the "V". In 1991, My employers immature crazy brother backhanded me in the privates with his fist, causing a Hydrocele. A sac of fluid formed in my left bean bag over the next few weeks, the size of a very large baked potato and had to be removed surgically in an 2 hour outpatient operation. Yes, they cut open the port ballast bag to remove it and it took 22 stiches. I had to lay in the bed for 2 days, on my back, alternating a bag of ice and a heating pad. 2 hours after getting home and for the 2 days, I felt down there like a high speed train had hit me in the privates. Never want to do that again!

Neglible difference between the two, IMHO. I've done it both ways, prefer the "no scalpel", but degree of discomfort and incidence of complications is pretty much the same.

It's OK though, 3 months later his brother fired him, he immediately filed for bankruptsy. 3 years later he died of massive injuries from a MOTORCYCLE accident because he was riding with a cast on his neck and foot from surgery after the doctors told him he could not drive a CAR. He was crazy, on drugs and a alcoholic.

Not an uncommon story taking each part individually, but to put them all together in one patient represents some rather bad luck.

Removing a segment of vas is pretty standard. Yes the procedure does tend to hurt. The local anesthetic tends to be MOSTLY successful, but its administration itself hurts - a sharp pinch to anesthetize the skin, then insert the needle to infiltrate local anesthetic around the vas deferens, which feels like getting kicked HARD in the balls for a couple of seconds. Have to do all this twice - once on each side. If the anesthetic doesn't take well on one or either side, cutting and cauterizing does definitely tend to hurt.

Oh, it is all coming back to me now. Especially the getting kicked HARD. That is what the doc said, but it actually felt like he was squeezing my on e boy as hard as he could. He looked at me and actually took a break. I was looking for a place to throw up. Left side....my clothes. Right side....doctor who has a firm grip on my testicle. I was going to opt either left side or straight up and hope to choke on my own vomit to put me out of my misery. I really was about to go through the ceiling!

That was the first side. The second side was slightly less painful.

I'm not saying it's a walk in the park, and I may have been lucky, but I've only had one guy that I know come back with a bad experience and that was because he went snowmobiling 1 day after having it done.

After I heard that story I was glad he was kicked out of the gene pool.

I think 9 years has probably blurred my memory of the pain.

So you had your lines cut hey? cool! I have been very close to getting mine cut for about 2 years now. I just look around and see all the BS in the world, and I dont want to bring a kid into it. plus I dont think I am fatherly material. I have too much anxiety and OCD to be a good father. Kids need someone that is strong for a parent, someone for guidance, wisdom, and confidence to grow. I dont fit that bill.:o I am a professional worrier. I can successfully worry about 5 things at once with no brakes. Having a kid would probably put me into the psych ward. :o

Go for it Jeff!!! Dont let it scare you! NO problem man! The fear isnt whats stopping me from making the call. I am all set to go. pre-op exam done, just gotta make a call to schedule it. They way I see it, if you get it done, you follow instructions:lay on the couch, LOTS of ice, then more ice, and some good pain killers. your good to go in a few days. They say if you take friday off work, get the procedure done on a thursday afternoon, you are in pretty good shape by monday IF you follow the rules.
