1 week before a gentle run, 2 weeks off the bike. Small shaved area, and anaesthetic cream 1 hour before (if I remember correctly), so no pain at all until later (frozen peas in a tea towel etc.).
Worst bit was the smell of burning tubes as they sealed them off with the machine, and both the (attractive) nurse and doctor both being female.
All worth it though.Posted 6 years agomatt_outandaboutSubscriber
About two days of ‘man, just been kicked in the bollocks’ feeling, a week of ‘oi, be careful, sudden movements and running can lead to stitches being tugged’ moments and back on bike/usual life in two weeks.Posted 6 years ago
Worst bits: stubble growing back and pulling my own stitches out to ease the ‘catching’ feeling…oh, and the moment the new nurse left me flat out on trolley, but nekkid from the waist down and opened the curtain wide, leaving it so, allowing all the reception and waiting room a view of the last turkey in the shop…stoneyMember
Just like cheshirecat said……Male doctor, fit nurse etc….Took a copy of MBUK in with me, baerly got past the first page. Barely felt the anaesthetic needle, slight tssssss of burning flesh etc, no stiches cos it
s a 5mm cut, 1/2 later on my way home. a little discomfort later on and ran the dads race at kiddies sports day (the day after).. 😯
Off the bike roughly 4-5 days 😆Posted 6 years agokevjMember
Well seeing as Mrs J is pregnant with my third little boy, I have been told I have to be gelded too 😯
I have said for years that I’d get it done but now it is on the cards I can honestly say I’m bricking it. A mate of mine is booked in this Thursday and we had a chat about it over the weekend. I suggested a space hopper race which didn’t go down too well!Posted 6 years ago
Anyone had it done while they were put under? <serious question>matt_outandaboutSubscriber
Anyone had it done while they were put under? <serious question>
my doc couln’t get one tube done, and wanted me to come back under general. I said to get on with it as I couldn’t be doing with the faff / more pain, so MTFU and get digging in there till you find the slippery little sucker.Posted 6 years agophilconsequenceMember
adjust the thermostat so it shows a lower temp than its set to, keep turning the heating on full randomly and convince the good lady she’s having hot flushes.
if she’s being polite, cower in the corner and with a tear rolling down your cheek, whisper ‘why are you shouting at me again?’
it wont be long before she’s convinced she’s having an early menopause and you can book her in for a hysterectomy.Posted 6 years agosoulwoodSubscriber
Had mine done a couple of years ago. Bloody horrible. Can’t remember what was worse, the anaesthetic injections not working when the female doctor made the incision, or that same doctor asking me to sign the disclosure form before the op, the part which read “A small minority of cases may result in permanent intense testicle pain”Posted 6 years agobigdaddyMember
I was ‘done’ a couple of years back. Sadly, no great stories to report – very simple and straightforward, 20 mins, snip snip, done. No pain, just a weird tugging feeling. I do second the need for extra tight pants for a day or two though – and the sack did go black! Back riding after a week though…
FWIW – I’d MUCH rather go through that than abstain…Posted 6 years agorangerbillSubscriber
I was booked in the same day as the dog. Luckily my wife manged to drop us of at the correct places.Posted 6 years ago
The dog licked his better and was bouncing around the next day. I had a general and Im sure Mrs B snuck in and took a meat tenderizer to the old chap. I waddled around for a while, mine were sore and hot and I remember sitting down with baggies on and catching them badly 8O.
Tight pants, talc, and ibuprofen.
Oh and achy balls is a quite common side effect.cheshirecatSubscriber
As I said above, mine was easy. However, mate had his done under a general anaesthetic. He had shaved beforehand, but woke up to find himself shaved from chest to knee, and he’s the gorilla type. I suspect there’s picture of this on a noticeboard somewhere. He was very relieved a few days later to find out that the aching and high temperature was proper flu rather than his bits.
Another friend passed out after getting a huge infection. He should have known better as a pharmacist.
having said all that, I have no regrets. Wish I’d had it done a few years before. The comment above about black (and purple) balls is dead on.Posted 6 years ago
