If you get a clip, will you still be dangerous, dan????????

do follow the after care procedure!! I was bored and started moving stuff and wound up taking a few extra days off before the swelling stopped. The wife loves not having to be careful and is much more eager for sex.

One of the guys at my previous job had it done and said it felt like he was kicked in the balls for a few days. He said his little boy jumped up on his lap and he almost smacked the kid because of the pain.

i have one scheduled for 11/1. Neighbor has had one and tells me no problem. Schedule for a Thursday - king for the weekend.

You've never been so alive as when you watch smoke curl up off your balls.[:D] I was cut Friday, back to work Monday morning. No ice or other BS required, just loose fitting pants. Wasn't bad, great narcotics were supplied, completely unneeded for the surgery. Nice to have later though. Afterwards, wife thought it was a new toy. Don't skip the sperm count after. I had a friend that had a 3rd vas deferens. Was quite a surprise to all concerned.

Got one 6 months ago. Worst part was the local they give you (guess where it's local to). I am glad I had it done.Keep ice on it and take the weekend off, meaning schedule it for a friday.

May I recommend nationally renowned Dr. Lorena Bobbitt..for this delicate procedure.
Link Posted: 9/24/2001 7:22:22 PM EDT
there are a couple of ways it done, make sure you get the 2 small hole(stichless) version It's said to be less painful and easy to recovery. I had it done on a Fri was at work Sunday(oil refinery operator) although I was a bit ginger climbing ladder/stairs for a coupled of days. Clint

Had one 3 months ago. Took the valium before hand so I didn't care too much during the procedure. No real pain, just a slight tug. I've had dentist visits that were more harrowing. It wasn't horrible, just sit around for a few days doing nothing. Watch some dvd's. Had a script for percoset and didn't use it - advil was good enough. Slept in a jock strap for several days. A secret I found was to wear a pair of tight bikini briefs over a pair of those 'hybrid' type briefs. Looks like something out of flashdance, but it provides a lot of support. I had some slight pain for a month or two, but only if the area was under undo stress. Now there's no pain, just a couple small fading scars. I concur that the smell of your vas deferens being cauterized is an unforgetable event. Check out [url]www.vasectomy-information.com[/url] for a boatload of stories.

Been shootin blanks a few years now. The pain does go away after a couple of weeks. Your "boys" will be shaved. [scary] Your amount of, err, ahh, "output" will drop by maybe 10%. You may not notice but your wife/gf might. Your "boys" will be shaved.[scary] No more "pull it out and shoot it on her face" method of birth control. Your "boys" will be shaved.[scary] You'll have an irresistable impulse to go to the mall more often and cross your legs funny. Your "boys" will be shaved.[scary] Had mine done by Dr. Becker The Pecker Wrecker as he was known in Gardnerville, NV. Oh, did I mention, YOUR BOYS WILL BE SHAVED. All in all, glad I had it done.

A buddy of mine had it done a few months back. The next morning as he was getting out of the shower one of his balls fell off and rolled under the clothes hamper. But I'm sure that was an isolated incident and nothing to worry about.

In the context of a loving marriage, children are always a blessing. I would never be cut.

DON'T DO IT!! Don't get your nuts chopped off for anyone. My uncle did this as part of an ultimatum from his wife, and they were divorced anyways about a year later. He eventually remarried, they both wanted kids, but...

In what universe do you get a vasectomy by having your 'nuts cut off'? If you want the vasectomy, go for it. Find a good doctor you're comfortable with. Make sure both you and your wife will never want any children. Once you're sure of that, you'll be glad you went through with it.

I had intended this for myself at one time. But after reading a study at a local hospital I was working at that cut men had a higher risk of Prostrate cancer I decided not to.
Link Posted: 9/24/2001 8:41:29 PM EDT
I'm in danger of sound like a nut when I say this, but I'll do it anyway. dangerousdan, are you sure there isn't a bad reason your wife wants you to do this? Every single guy I've known that has gotten a vasectomy did it because their wife wanted them to, then she screwed (well, figuratively) him. A good friend of mine was 32 when his loving wife of 14 years talked him into it. Two weeks later, she left him. She had it planned-out as a way of getting back at him for losing his job. Now, he's married to a 27 year-old, and they want to have kids, but... Just make sure the motives are good. I've seen too many women use it as a cheap stab in the back.z

"In what universe do you get a vasectomy by having your 'nuts cut off'?" My word was "chopped," not "cut." In my corner of the universe, the choice of "chopped" over "cut" indicates a literary device known as "sarcasm." Look it up. Don't you recognise humor when you see it? No flames intended (well, maybe a little) - don't take it personally.

A guy I know told a story about a guy he knew (yeah, right!) - a hunting guide in Alaska. The guide had a client, a vetenarian by trade. The guide mentioned that he was thinking of getting snipped but the money was kinda tight. The vet replied that, "Hell, I've done it for years on animals, and I can do it for you in exchange for the cost of the hunt." He thought about it for a moment, dropped his drawers, and hopped on the table. The deed was done and bandages were applied. Well, guess what? A few months later after the vet was gone, his wife was expecting.
Link Posted: 9/24/2001 9:03:02 PM EDT
Might as well cut your balls off.
Link Posted: 9/24/2001 9:09:39 PM EDT
I had mind done about 4 months ago. The only thing that really hurt was the local. 2 shots total, and the nurse pulling the grounding pad stuck to my side(vary hairy). Sore for 2 days. Used frozen corn and peas to keep swelling down. Don't do any extremely strainous stuff for a while(Removing barrels from actions). You will be sore in the morning. One thing I have to say about it is DAMN the orgasms are really intense now!! Like Your Head is gona Explode!(the one you put your hat on you perv's) So that's my experience.
Link Posted: 9/24/2001 9:19:11 PM EDT
I can't believe what a bunch of wimps some of you guys are. Maybe you don't need vasectomy because you ain't got any cajones to begin with (hey, I'm only joking). There's no proof of an increased cancer risk. That's been debunked. [url]http://www.vasectomy-information.com/journal/topic2.asp?search=Vasectomy+and+prostate+cancer[/url] If you want it, and your wife wants it, do it. So what if someone has an anecdote about a harpish wife leaving their husband after the vasectomy? Who is to say they wouldn't have left them anyway? Seriously, people. Grow up and grow a pair. Don't discourage someone just because you lack the courage to undergo the procedure.

Had the wife shave the boys, not the nurse. More fun that way. Hell I went out for Chinese afterwards and went shopping with the wife. The only pain was in my stomach, which I had been told by many "experienced " guys that if the doc did it right, that is where it would hurt. And whoever said this, he's right, ----> you won't forget the sight and smell of your balls smokin. I would caution you to make sure that you are done having kids. I have four boys and wish I had tried one more time for a daughter.

I don't understand all of the talk and concern about the smoke coming off of 'em during the procedure. Hell mine have smoke curling off of them every time I have sex. If y'alls don't then you aren't putting enough enthusiasm into the act itself.

Bigdb1 and Robbie, I remember going in and my doc had a female PA that was actualy going to do the work. I was kind of cocky (pun intended) and wanted to see her face when Dick started to grow during prep. Well I started thinking about the procedure and when she came towards my gninyockies with that needle I practicly had an inny. Mr. Johnson was nowhere to be found.

Had it done a few years ago. The downside is the experience itself. Upside: 1. You'll live longer 2. You'll be calmer 3. You won't pee on the carpet anymore 4. You won't hump visitor's legs anymore I really miss #4.[:(]

Thanks for all the help. I appreciate all the input from everyone.
Link Posted: 9/25/2001 10:16:33 AM EDT
Had it done twenty five years ago. Shooting blanks since. Minor 'discomfort' when the doc gave me the local. Since they had given me a couple of pills to take at home first before going into the doc's office, I was in no pain anyway. The entire process took only a few minutes. Only one thing...when he hooked and then PULLLLLLED those little curly tubes out to cut them...I FELT it. Not really painful...just felt it. Afterwards, make sure you take the pain meds and use the ice bag, especially at night...and DON'T do anything strenuous for a few days. That's a great excuse to relax and watch football for a couple of weekends. I would also be real careful about making sure the sperm count is at zero BEFORE you go back to doing the horizontal mambo. This operation don't necessarily work overnight. After you're safe, you can try to convince the wife/gf that you need to determine the net effect of this operation...but if she is like most steadies...she will just laugh in your face. Bottom line...if you're convinced you are done making kids...get the operation. [soapbox][beer]

[b]Don't underestimate the importance of the follow-up samples![/b] My first post surgery sample was "clean", the next one was not. The ones to follow got worse. Although the tubes were cauterized and clamped, the inflamed tissue reconnected below the cutoff. This failure occurs in approx 1/1000 vasectomies. So I went back into the stirrups for a second time. We had a husband and wife in our childbirth class that told us they were expecting a child because the husband did not go back and give his samples, since his was clamped and burned! His too had reconnected. Now they have a baby.

I had mine done January of 2000, with hardly any problems. It was painless, but the wisp of smoke you can't miss. It took me several samples before I was "clear". Nothing like handing a bottle of your DNA to the old gal behind the reception desk at the Doc's... not once, not twice but...5 times. The lab tech, though, was this young hottie [;)] The right "boy" still gives me a twinge every now and then, they say it's congestion that goes away eventually...
Link Posted: 9/25/2001 10:37:25 PM EDT
If you decide to go through it, put some, uh, "samples" on ice just in case. A former coworker of mine lost his entire family in a house fire while he was away. Not being able to have kids again was a very painful topic for him. Personally, I've always felt that "69" was the best form of birth control, wiht "68" being a close second. [:p]
