Hubby is booked in for a vasectomy. No one has told him anything about it, who is going to do it, what to do before, after or during, just a phone call this morning saying when and where. It's at the Doctor's Surgery! This in itself is a bit of a surprise - having expected it to be at hospital! He has been given no advice or information... the GP just asked how many kids he had and when he answered made some comment about why he hadn't come in earlier. Any advice, info or well, anything would be helpful right now. He's a bit confused. So am I!

Thanks.

PS: We do know what a vasectomy IS, but there seem to be so many different ways of DOING it, and all I've learned is from the font of all knowledge - Google. Cheers.

For after? Like immediately after - take with him to appointment? I have read that super tight pants are the future.

I'm also rather concerned about what might go wrong... I really don't want to Google that. Any experienced peeps in the room?

What could wrong, he might slip and cut one of his nuts off I suppose.

Does he often book himself in for operations without knowing anything about them? ;) Could he not ask the doctor?!

My friend had it done, and he had problems for about two years after.

Do you not think your husband would be better off talking to his GP rather than asking questions on a shopping forum? :D

He's a man. I'm lucky he got booked in at all. He doesn't ask questions.... just assumes this is normal. He got a bit nervous this morning when the surgery rang and said it would be done at the Practice. Otherwise, he was happy to just float along with the tide as it were.

Hubby had his done in hospital, But he was under general anesthetic. He was in from about 9am till about 4:30.
He had to have 2 consulatants appointments to have his bloods done and assesments, Also they asked both times if he was sure it was the way ahead, even though we have 3 kids.

He was in so much pain after and lived on pain killers, they grew so big and bruised afterwards that he lived constantly in proper pants to keep them from moving really.

Don't be silly, there are several 'qualified consultants' in the misc, ready and willing to give advice X)

lol, mine was done and dusted in 20 minutes, drove home and went to work 2 days later, no problems no pain at all.

I think we both assumed it would be done at the hospital and he'd have an appointment beforehand to discuss what would be done and how. Instead he got this phonecall this morning telling him to come in and be done.
#13
my husband freaked about what if he could never get it up again lol So as soon as he could he tried lol Odd things :p

My husband got a nasty looking lamp once the bruising had gone down, but they said it was just the sticthes dissolving and his ball having a reaction to it.

Once it had all settled its been perfectly fine.

I don't think many are carried out in Hospitals anymore, either your own doctors or local satellite clincs these days

His probably would of been if he wasn't such a wuss and needed general anesthetic! lol Saying that they did only do the general as 1 ball was higher than the other, so they thought they would have to do more chopping than needed :p

Had mine a couple of months ago and it was a breeze. It was at a local(ish) hospital but I was in and done and out again within 40 minutes and that included all the paperwork before and after and a cheeky wee cuppa tea afterwards Nothing to worry about tell him, pain wise, if any, its on par with getting a needle at the dentist.
Wear briefs as opposed to boxers for the next few weeks afterwards, I found they gave a bit better support. GOOD LUCK!! ;)

Oh yeah, he'll get absolutely no sympathy, in fact I am sure my missus was looking forward to it and got some sort of kick out of it.

Thanks everyone. I'll try ringing the surgery when they open a bit later... but the receptionists are a particular breed of evil and don't let you speak to anyone medically trained without jumping through several germ filled hoops first. We were fine until they said it was at the Doc's!

Yes all us women who have been through child birth and belly stretching have no sympathy to the men for a bit of ball ache :p

the last sharp thing that came near my meat and 2 veg was a set of keys i puti n my pocket.... aggonising pain and i can tell you something there is no way i would ever have anything slicing and dicing my potatoes lol.... would rather just leave it.

On a more serious note, it seems your hubbies GP has little idea on the procedure or is not a peoples person. My advice (as many here have pointed out0 is probably to go to the NHS adivice line and tell them about any questions he may have on the procedure. Then to tell them his doc is a c0ck.

on a positive, no more condoms :)

men carry the burdon of not having intercourse during the pregnancy and STILL staying faithful!
men have to endure the more than usual ranting and raving during the womens pregnancy for 9 months and then 6 months after!
men have to wake up in the middle of the night and feed the baby and then go to work too!

man to man i salute you men!

I will now be in hiding while the women try and find me and publiclly stone me to death lol :)

I didn't give up sex while preg, so he was lucky there, I did rant and talk about babies for yes the whole 9 months :p And no the lazy ass didn't get up to feed the babies either.

lol I also know my husband slept on my bed while I was stuck in a hospital chair with newborn after I gave birth, Midwife wasn't happy :D lol

Ok, so it seems you have a prize husband lol.... but this is probably something which is a little confusing to me as i dotn have kids etc. But i cant imagine doing it with a kid in the womans belly seems a little weird....but like i said thats just me..

btw your hubby has my respect for sleeping in your bed while you were in the chair......legend in the making lol

hey!! my hubby had this done just over a yr ago at the doctors.

he made a real drama out of how painful it was but i have an inckling he was milking it slightly as well...i let him...meh might as well!!

went to doc surgery, he was called in...i sat in waiting room for like half hour and then he was out...simples. had a letter with him (u get all ur info afterwards not before) and 2 specimen bottles he had to do i think 2 months and then 5 months later a semen sample in. which i deliverd to the hosp and then they confirmed that results wee negative for sperm so woohoo.....

sadly we didnt factor in the impact of three kids....really no need for the vesectomy ;) haha..i kid...kinda!!

Yup. I'd be happy having babies forever. He wants no more, he deals with it. I was worried though, about the sheer LACK of information. Not even a pamphlet... Still waiting for the surgery to reopen. Heaven alone knows what hours they keep.

you feel a small p rick or two & job's a good 'un, simples ! but for me I was put under, there was no way I was going to watch someone handle my nuts with cold hands & a sharp scalpel & discuss the weather & last nights football !!! I went in about 8 on a friday morning & home by 12 walking like john wayne, back to work monday, now getting the sample to the docs a few weeks later to see if it worked was a different story, you have to keep it warm !!!

Hubby had his about 9 years ago....told him he wasn't coming anywhere near me till he had it done. Yes he was in a bit of pain afterwards, nowt compared to my stitches after natural childbirth (1st child)or the aftermath of my c-section (2nd & 3rd child) so I have to say he didn't get much in the way of sympathy from me!

No problems afterwards....you only ever hear about the scare stories!
