My Vasectomy Reversal Latest News

     I have received my paperwork for the doctor to review before my operation. I have to fill in all kinds of things from my full name, address, emergency contacts, and insurance information.

     The insurance information is for an emergency, I am guessing, because I am paying for this procedure out-of-pocket. My insurance company will not pay for any of it. They did, however, cover the entire vasectomy procedure. They said it is cheaper to get a vasectomy than for a woman getting her tubes tied, or even giving birth.

     The paperwork I have to fill out, asks questions pertaining to my family’s medical history, to my recent and past ailments like recent weight gain and body pains and coughs, and asks if I am involved in a pending medical lawsuit.

     My wife and I received a call today from the office, informing us that the operation time has been moved back an hour due to an appointment before mine. They also said they want to get me comfortable.

     I will be given Valium and Vicodin to really relax me for the 3 hour procedure.

     Because of the need for a sterile environment, and less distraction for the doctor who needs to concentrate on this micro surgical procedure, we were told my wife is not allowed in the operating room.

     I feel bad for her, because she will be bored out of her mind waiting. Hopefully she can find a friend to hang out with and help the time go by while I am in there.

     But it seems it’s still a go for November 21. First, the consultation on November 4.

    Where’s the surgery? Maybe I can go and keep her company. Tell her to let me know.
