  • My dh had the big "V". His was done in outpatient surgery at the hospital. I drove him, took about an hour I think. He actually had quite a bit of pain for about 3 days and then mild pain for a few days after that. He was not bedridden by it, but uncomfortable. I don't really think that they have to ejaculate, because sperm is only viable for so long anyway and without the ability to make "new" sperm, the old ones will die off in a certain time frame on their own. I think we were told no unprotected sex for 6 weeks and then a test to be sure there were no live swimmers.

  • Somewhere I read men should have a test yearly (I think it was yearly.) to make sure it hasn't grown back.

  • We have a friend that had it done and went back for 4 months for a SA and each time there were live sperm so he had to have it redone.
    He was NOT happy.

    It's a fairly simple procedure from what I understand and he should be over it within a couple of days at least the worst part.
