Vasectomy Reversal…Updated

     Well I am in my final last few days of being sterile. I went to the doctor last week Tuesday to meet him, and have him explain to me exactly what’s going to happen.

     We dove over to the other side of Michigan, my wife and me, to meet the doctor, and to show my wife the way home because I will be unable to drive once I am done. I have my nerves all calmed down, and I am just nervous for the actual day. The procedure of the vasectomy reversal will be a piece of cake, according to the doctor.

     We sat in a room with him and he told us what exactly is going to happen. He will give me a little dose of Xanax. He says that this will make me extremely sleepy. He said 2/3 of the men usually fall asleep, so he encouraged me to bring my iPod while I am being operated on for the 1-1/2 hour procedure.

     He will give me 3 shots. One shot into each side of my scrotum, into my tubes that support my testes. Then one more shot directly into my scrotum to numb up the entire area. Everything will be numb and tired and I won’t feel a thing.

     Then he will make one cut into my scrotum to open up and make access to each side to perform the reversal. He said he does several of these a week and it’s easy to do, whereas if he didn’t do them as often, the procedure may take longer.

     Then when I am done and more aware of my surroundings, he told me to stop at the gas station down the road and get a cup and fill it with ice and have that sit between my legs for the ride home.

     My wife will be doing the driving, so I hope that Xanax will still keep my woozy until we get home. I don’t want that ride to seem like forever.

     The doctor also said that we can’t try to get pregnant until a month after the operation. Until then, I will need to ejaculate the 4th day after the operation, and every other day from then on, if not more. Knowing me, it will probably be every day. This is to keep the tubes open and prevent them from scarring closed.

     After that first month, I need to bring in a sample of my sperm and they will be able to tell if the army is fit for duty.

     It sounds like a piece of cake, doesn’t it? Well I hope so. The operation is next week Friday. I have 12 days of shooting blanks. 12 days with my boys being harmless. 12 days of nerves building. 12 days of anxiety to just get it reversed and get the baby-making days going.

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.
