Okay... I'm out

As to the procedure itself, well, I'm not going to kid you. There's nothing pleasant about it.

It depends on what version you undergo, but other men have written, for example, about the horrible moment when they look down and see a puff of smoke appearing above their groin.

When baby sister's husband had it done I was the person who picked him up at the hospital. Jebus, you'd think they cut the entire penis off he was wailing and screaming the entire drive to his house. He tried to claw the fabric off the roof of the truck. Twas an ugly site to behold, it was so hard not to laugh but that would of been mean.

rose... i'm more than ready to concede that anyone, who, as part of the evolutionary process... is willing to pass an object the size of a rugby ball... is indeed the tougher link in this particular equation.

fwiw... one of my younger brothers had a vasectomy some years back.

the high point of the procedure, which brought him flying up off the table... was when he felt a particularly unpleasant tugging... just as the doctor let slip an involuntary... "oops!".

sorry... i know it's not particularly admirable, or manly... but i'm still out.

Heh.....my "sugar" finally broke down after number 6, or was it 7? Or maybe even 8? Any who he was practically begging for the procedure when he was in the Doc's office and it was done in his office, he has been a free and happy "sugar" since. No more anxiety about his "boys" and what they can get up to anymore. It's all good according to him.

don't get me wrong... "in theory"... i actually think vasectomy is a very good thing.

for instance, it's indisputably a much less invasive procedure than the female equivalent, never mind being a figurative flea on the ass of actual childbirth.

but hey... some people are afraid of snakes, or spiders... with me it's sharp objects and my testicles.

i'm just a little weird that way... go figure.

My husband cringed at the mention of the word. But, he got it done and went back to work for the rest of the day. He said it was nothing.

His brother, on the other hand, took 3 days off work.

I guess each person handles it differently.

Don't do it!! It will reduce the amount of fluid in your ejaculate when you get to your 60's and 70's. Of course if that OK by you, go right ahead.

Just FYI.

"frank says... reduce the amount of fluid"

Poor baby...want me to send you a bag of frozen peas?

I don't know what the big deal is. I had "the procedure" (you know, a vasectomy...) done many years ago after our second child. Worst part of the whole operation was having to shave... everything! Itchy, really itchy, when it grew back. Other than that, no problem, no pain, no more kids...

I went to www.gentlevasectomy.com/, booked an appointment, got checked out, booked the procedure the next week and was in an out in under two hours.

No fuss, little muss, and went to a party that night.

But the bag of peas is a good idea.

Man you are a wuss. It's a 15 minute procedure.

BTW, you must not be a real conservative. Using birth control is an affront to God. It is unnatural.

"cc-nonymous cries... Using birth control is an affront to God."

another half dozen anonymous trolls in the last 10 minutes... i guess you're lonely tonight, huh?

anyway, gomer... read slower... i'm an atheist.

Thankfully, my doc put me completely out to the soothing sounds of - get this ... Dire Straights - before the snipping commenced.

Just don't get the bright idea that you're "all better" the next day.

Golf balls.

i think everybody is gonna have a different experience here... depending on their mindset, physical constitution... and, not insignificantly, depth of imagination.

before having arthroscopic knee surgery years ago, i was told by a neighbour that her brother was up and about doing chores the next day.

based on that, and against mrs neo's express advice i might add... i took a trip to the national archives in ottawa the very next day... and ended up almost puking in one of their wastebaskets (hangover from the anesthesia)... and being pushed around in a wheelchair by my octogenarian father-in-law.

my point?

as with any other human enterprise... results may vary.

Mine was painless, and the recovery took about all of 12 hours. I've had more pain from hangnails than my vasectomy. Absolutely nothing to it. No pain, no swelling, just lots of happy time!
