Vasectomy Reversal ‘Patience’

     Yes! I spelled that correctly…patience…because, like Tom Petty sang, “…the waiting is the hardest part…” or so I hope.

     My wife and I have put down a deposit on the vasectomy reversal operation. We also have been playing a bit of tug-of-war with the office who is doing the procedure, because we are impatient.

     We were originally scheduled for October 22 for just the consultation, but had that moved. Actually it was moved BACK, to November 4.

     Why, you may ask, did the consultation date get moved back? Because we switched doctors and to fit into the present doctor’s schedule, it got moved back, but the actual operation date got moved up a whole month, from December 19 to November 21.

     We are very antsy for this. It’s all we have been talking about. Today, actually we really didn’t speak too much of it, because it makes us too anxious.

     We feel we are getting ahead of ourselves when we discuss baby names. My wife is the one who comes up with great names, but I am too picky, and I shoot the them down for one reason or another.

     So this is the latest on where we are with the plans. I have stopped smoking, totally, so as to help me build up a good sperm army. I don’t want anything negative working against me. I want to control as much as I can, because the uncontrollable things are already at work.

    there are other options so take heart! if the reversal doesn’t give fast enough results you can always have a semen extraction… which they do with infertile couples where the guy cannot ejaculate for medical or psychological reasons. then they just shoot it into your wifes egg and wa la!!!

    good luck.

    Yes, we realize that. But that procedure is way more expensive. We are barely able to scrape up up money for this.

    But all we are excited for, at this moment, is to have the reversal and have the opportunity at making a baby.

    Hey I just want to say good luck I had a reversal two months ago. It is worth it. I have to tell you, you may not think so for about two weeks after the surgery but it is. My wife and I are trying to concieve we have yet to be successful. We bought ovulation tests, so we know when my wife is ovulating. I just went to the doctors to have my semen tested I find out tommorrow.

    Oh that is awesome, dude! I wish you luck also! I am a little nervous and excited. My wife, too, plans on buying the “egg tests”, as we call them.
