2 weeks. However, I did rattle my knackers on the nose of the saddle and thought I was going to die/cry/pass out.Posted 4 years ago
did you all have it done under local? did you feel ‘the snip’ as it was done?
Local. You could feel some “pulling”.
I was able to walk out of hospital within the hour. Things were a bit tender but I was back in work on the monday after having it done on the Friday. The waiting was worse than the operation TBH.Posted 4 years agoGarry_LagerSubscriber
I’m being a total fanny about this and keep putting it off – squeamish doesn’t begin to cover it.Posted 4 years ago
Also surprised to hear my GP say that it’s basically irreversible – you hear it described as being a reversible process in popular culture. Apparently they can re-connect the plumbing OK but the little fellas are all fked from the inactivity. Is this the case?MoreCashThanDashSubscriber
I’m incredibly squeamish, had it done, sweated like a pig through the whole process, lived to tell the tale and no regrets. Some pointers:
1) Shave VERY thoroughly – gives the nurses something to talk about! 8)
2) If the surgeon doesn’t give you enough local, he will know this a very few fractions of a second after you do 😯
3) I hate the smell of my own burning tubes in the morning 😥
4) Take it easy for as few days until you are really confident things are healing and sorted – the consequences of it going wrong can be ugly
5) No matter how grateful your other half is that you have undergone this as a sign of your commitment to her and your relationship, there is a reason the nurses suggest you avoid carnal knowledge for a few days – see 4 above 😳Posted 4 years agojekkylMember
I can confirm that it is completely reversible, my cousin had it done after having 2 kids then got divorced and hooked up with another lass, baby will be one year old in June.
It does seem a lot of time trouble and pain just so you don’t have to wear a jonny. It’s not that bad, makes you last longer and much less chance of ‘dribble’ on the sheets. 😛Posted 4 years agob rMember
could i get it done on my private healthcare plan, and get it done under general, with a couple of nights in a nice hospital?
You are joking, right?
I had mine done at the local health centre, drove home. Had already planned to have two days working from home, then back to work.
Not sure what you guys are paying now, but mine was £80 private (14 yrs ago).Posted 4 years agobwaarpMember
Did you guys know you run the risk of having a lower sexual desire with the snip? Yes, it is actually a side….somehow.
Animal studies have also shown a drop in testosterone levels of about 40 percent within 8 months of having it done!
Which means you might get bitch tits and limp dick. Probably why your wives want you to have it done.
I for one will remain a real man until I die 😈Posted 4 years agobwaarpMember
You do realize that the body has to do something with the sperm don’t you and by that I mean immunologically? Anyway… let’s start with this one shall we
Having said that I just found a large more recent study which shows no link bewteen vasectomy and sexual desire.
I personally think that vasectomy isn’t something you should be rushing into unless you feel it really benefits you and your partner, as with every procedure it has risks. You can stop taking the pill if you get sides, you can’t always reverse vasectomy and if you get chronic pain it means more surgery.Posted 4 years ago
