RULE #1 DO NOTHING ALL WEEKEND !!

RULE #2 when you want to get up and do something -- SEE RULE #1.

seriously -- you'll 'THINK' you're fine sooner than you are actually fine.

do absolutely nothing for 3-4 days and you should be fine.

After contemplating for a bit I made the same assumption.

So all I did this weekend was hold the couch down and turn frozen peas into less frozen peas. Today I'm back in the office and other than some swelling and tenderness I feel pretty good.
I'd say there's really nothing too terrible about getting snipped when you consider the benefits you eventually receive.

Recovery was a non-event for me. I hope the same is true for you.

And the sureness of the "cure" is a nice thing.

Take the post follow-up seriously.

My neighbor/friend never went back. 6 months later his wife was pregnant - with Twins !!

I was a good guy and went with him to the Honda Dealership where he traded in his Accord for an Odyssey. Big Grin

I had mine done in January of 1975 after my second son was born.

It was a problem doing it in the doc's office, but he persevered. I, on the other hand, suffered.

My testicles were as swollen as volley balls (seriously) and I had to be very careful not to step down too hard or the shaking/bouncing they got from that hurt like the devil.

Lasted a couple of weeks and then things returned to normal.

Hope you fare better than I did.

Thanks for all the well wishes.
So far so good. Aside from shuffling around like Ozzy I'm able to function almost normally.

Same thing happened to my buddy. Didn't do the follow-up. His wife wasn't thrilled at being pregnant at 40, but they had a beautiful, healthy girl.

I walked in 3 times, walked out 2 over a few years. Finally done, and my wife was fixed after the last child (some issues). But - a buddy on a fishing trip was surprised and decided I need to not have any surprises. Took me roughly 5-6 weeks to feel normal, and yes got checked by the doctor. Lots of ice, take a break.

I had mine done back in December, the peas were key! I used 2 bags and kept swapping them out.

Worst part was laying there with my junk out and this nurse prepping me and trying to make small talk as she’s getting my nutsack ready. Eek

Yeah, that was pretty awkward. There were two with me. The nurse was young and very attractive and she had a "trainee" with her. Luckily the circumstances and atmosphere of the venue made it so there were no embarrassing topics "popping up". That soap they use is cold!
I used the alternating bags as well. Worked great along with Tylenol and my trusty Deluthe Trading "Bullpen" underwear.

I had mine done fifty years ago in a Navy hospital. While my wife and I were in the waiting room, a Marine Major came out walking very gingerly. I said in a loud whisper, "Oh my God, he was a sailor when he went in." He gave me a glare, but was in no shape to do anything.

I was in the hospital being prepped for quadruple heart bypass surgery. I was laying on the bed totally nude. Two young good looking female nurses were prepping me and two young good looking female aids were shaving me from stem to stern. My wife was in a chair next to me. I have never felt more vulnerable in my life.
