Vasectomy Reversal Recovery Moving Along Well

     It has been 11 days since I had got my vasectomy reversed. I know I wrote about it in an earlier post, but I want to get into how this is going so far.

     The first few days I was tender, I admit. It was a tender sensation on and in the bag. The ropes that hold things up were what I was feeling.

     The 4th day was the day I had to begin ejaculating. I was instructed by the doctor to do that at least every other day. He also joked and said if I felt up to it, I could do so every day. This is to wash out the old, stagnant sperm and replenish them with newer, hopefully more acive, ones.

     When I finally did ejaculate that morning, it felt as though I was shooting a golf ball through a garden hose. it did not hurt, but I could practically feel the whole journey my sperm took. There was also a hint of pinkish in my “output”. I called and found out that was normal.

     Later that day I felt a little pain. I took it easy and laid on the couch and took more Vicodin and was hoping this was not a bad sign. I began to get delusions of the “patchwork” the doctor did had blown apart. But all ended up being well.

     My scrotum had turned some nice shades of purple and blue in small areas near my body. The bruising is natural. This was the same day I had stopped using my whitey tighties and got back into my boxers.

     What a relief! I felt better and then the boys began to feel better.

     I have been keeping up with my doctor’s orders on a daily basis. My wife is a good sport and participates most of the time, the other times she leaves the room and lets me “work out the juices”. All this is kinda like a free pass, since I actually do have a mission, and I get to enjoy myself along the way, with my wife or not. He He!

     And one more thing before I wrap this up. Remember in Superman 2 (I believe it was) when he gave up his powers and transformed into a human? I kinda felt like him.

     When my wife I had sex for the first time after the surgery, I felt like I had transformed into something I never thought I would ever be again, FERTILE! I felt like I was a different man. I felt like this was a good thing that I did, and I hope all this pays off in the end. It’s all worth it!

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.
