Vasectomy Reversal Recovery Time

     It has been 4 days since I had had my vasectomy reversed. I am in a little bit of pain still, but I believe I am through the worst of it.

     The procedure went fine and according to the doctor it was successful. He said his last couple reversals were difficult and he was thinking he was due for an easy one, and I was it, the easy one. Whew!

     The nurse gave me Xanax upon my arrival and within 20 minutes almost all my nerves were calmed down. I was extremely nervous about having this. But I calmed down, and then they took me to the room where I was to have the surgery.

     They had me remove my pants and put on my brand new whitey tighties and have those down to my ankles. This was to make it easier to pull back up when I was finished. I laid down on the table and turned on my iPod and I tried to fall asleep. I never did sleep, but I was really relaxed.

     The doctor gave me 3 shots, one directly into my scrotum, the other two went right into my “supply lines” of my testes. I would be lying if I said those shots didn’t hurt. They did. Then I was numb and the doctor was on his way.

     He did my left side first, then he did my right side. I was out of there in an hour and a half. No big deal. My wife drove home, we had pizza, I ate a couple of Vicodin and I was out for the rest of the night.

     Saturday I felt alot better, little pain. Sunday I felt even better, with a little pain and Monday even better, pain almost gone. I called the doctor and asked if I had to wait the 4 days before I ejaculated. He said no if I felt up to it. The ejaculation is to clean out the dormant sperm, and to get the juices flowing through the lines, to open them up and let sperm pass through. It’s been almost 6 years since my sperm have traveled this road.

     After ejaculating, I had a little pain in my lines. There was also a faint pink color. I called the doctor and he said that is natural. I am healing and there may be a hint of blood in my sperm. Only if I see more blood or experience more pain do I need to call him and come back in.

     For now, I am still laying around. I have watched so much tv, sports, movies, news and taken alot of naps due to the Vicodin. I am not quite ready to take on the world just yet because it looks like we have alot of snow out there, and who wants to go out there if you don’t have to. I’ll send my wife!!

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.
