If you're young you can recover pretty fast, in a month or so. If you're and old fart it takes a little longer.

I'm not trying to hijack this thread but here is a funny medical story that I want to share with everyone.

About 5 years ago I had surgurey to remove a cyst from my testicles. OUCH! I was not a happy camper after they did that! Prior to the surgurey I had to have an ultrasound test and this nice looking nurse rubbed lubricating jelly on my nuts and massaged it with a vibrating wand!

When I went to the waiting room in the radiology dept they took my paperwork and had me sit down and wait. You know the drill, the call your name when they are ready for you. In this particular Doctor's office they do ultra-sound tests and X-Rays in the same department. As I'm sitting there waiting I see this burly looking Harley driver in full leathers gimping down the hallway. He had obviously hurt his knee and he could barely walk. He hands the receptionist his paperwork and sits down. In the mean time we engage in some small talk while waiting for our turn. The nurse comes out and calls for Jeff (me). This motorcycle rider imediately gets up and follows the nurse into the back room thinking he is going to get a knee X-Ray. I hear this loud commotion and screaming going on and the guy runs back into the waiting room, obviouly shaken and sits down. He then says "I can't beleive this fucked up place. I come in to get a knee X-Ray and the nurse wants to look at my nuts!" I asked him is his name was Jeff and he said "no, my name is Jack." I said, "my name is Jeff so you must have heard her wrong. When you got up to go in the back I just assumed that your name was also Jeff." I then told him that I'm the guy who needs to get his nuts looked at. At that point we both had a good laugh at his mistake. As I got up to follow the nurse in the backroom for the ultrasonic lube job I told Jack on the way out, "dude you are lucky I didn't need to see a proctologyst!"
