Default Feels like a kick in the nuts

Got a vasectomy this morning. Took about 20 minutes. Just sitting on ice all weekend.
That all. Carry on

My advice: don't be in a rush to get "back in the saddle". You'll regret it.

A couple of bags of frozen peas will help. Rotate them as needed. 1 in the freezer the other on your crotch. Take it slow.

Come Monday you're going to be feeling better and you will probably go out and do something as simple as bend down for which you will be very sorry. When they tell you to take it easy for 5-7 days, they know what they're talking about. Ask me how I know.

Yes very true. I rushed getting back to work because I thought I felt great but, it backfired on me and was sidelined even longer.

I know a lot of people say that they are back to normal in one day. For me that was not true.
I did not have any pain meds at all (except alcohol), but I felt ok after 1 week. It took me about a month to feel normal like someone was not punching me in the bag all the time. I certainly do not regret it!

Did it 23 years ago. Throw some ice on it and you'll be fine. Give it a bit to "clear the pipes" and it's game on.

Best thing you could ever do.

Had it done over 30 years ago, made sure everything "worked" the next day (it did), went back to work 3 days later (was careful about lifting) and never had any trouble. I am sure that I was just (stupid) lucky. Good desition to get it done. Best of luck on a speedy recovery.

Mine was a wreck... giant swollen sack, out of work 2 weeks. FF 18 years, had a growth on lefty, been growing, heavy and an aggravating pain, had it checked out. Doc says not to uncommon, nothing to it, 3-4 days. Had it fixed on the 6th, satchel swollen again, down 2+ weeks, hematoma the size of a golf ball behind the little guys... shoulda put a rubber band on’em...

Did it years ago. Sat on frozen peas for 2 days, had a few percocets with a beer and was back at work a few days later. Vasectomy hurt a hell of alot less then then the hernia operation.

In case you don’t know already...you’re gonna lose some distance. And some volume. Still worth it.

Timed mine for March too. Finals week..
Frozen peas and briefs. You'll be fine. Boxers are bad idea.

I got mine on July 3rd. Went whitewater rafting on July 4th.
Found out that icing your balls is really quite pleasant during hot weather.
You'll be fine!

Bingo! I wore a pair of bicycle shorts that were pretty snug and kept the boys nice and tight. Rotated through bags of peas and rested for 2 days. Not a single complaint!

I know many guys that have had this done and almost all that had complications admitted to not following the docs orders and doing some kind of strenuous exercise/work.

actually, only complaint I had was that doc told me it takes about 20 ejaculations to “Clear the pipes.” He wanted me to bring in a sample of number 21 to make sure all is good. I had my surgery done on a Friday and he forgot to mention they are closed on Saturday!!
