Finally Did It and Am Glad It's OverWell, hee hee, I'm still a little sore! In case you want to know, the surgery itself was painless; getting the local anesthetic hurt like h*ll though: the shot made me arch my back up off the little table! My scr*tum is not a good place to feel poking and burning. Anyway, that part was very brief, kind of like a mild bee sting, so I'm not complaining; my wife went through six Cesarean deliveries so I would look pretty wimpy if I did.
They put me in a small room with an exam table covered with pads. I sat in a chair while a pretty young nurse asked me some general health questions, preoperative stuff. She left after telling me to pull off my pants, sit on the table and cover up with a sheet. Then it was wait, too long, maybe a half hour.
The doctor came in finally and made sure I knew what we were there for. He gave me the local anesthetic; I endured it; then he did the deed. Before cutting anything he worked the vas deferens out from a bundle of blood vessels; that was so when he made his tiny incisions he wouldn't have to dig around to find the tubes he was looking for, they'd be right there below the surface.
I didn't feel a thing while he was cutting, not even during the extra stitch he put in on one side to stop the prolonged oozing of blood, only one stitch needed on the other side. Wife drove me home while I held an ice pack on my crotch (to keep the swelling and bruising down). I had a little pain, kind of a dull ache, once in a while over the evening after the surgery, and last night too: about 4 a.m. I got up and went for the ice pack again. This morning I feel pretty okay, very slight ache between my legs but it's improving fast (I walk carefully for now).
The doctor told me the old ***** cells would flush out in fifteen ejaculations and then I take in a ***** sample to confirm that I am sterile...they give you eight weeks to have fifteen ejaculations! Wow, I'll be done in less than half that time.
I started this group to let people know the surgery wasn't a big deal. Less than twenty-four hours later and I feel fine, just a little tender.
Best regards everyone!
