The Big Snip

Well, last Friday, I finally took the plunge and had a vasectomy.

I'll be honest... I was pretty nervous. I mean, I understood the procedure. I'd talked to friends about the procedure, and even googled a bit to see what other guys had said about it, and how their procedure went. Overall, everyone was positive about it, and said the pain was minimal. Still... the idea of the urologist slicing open my testicles wasn't the most appealing.

But, despite my misgivings (and the fact that I was ready to stop having children!), I dragged my sorry self outta bed at the butt crack of dawn last Friday and headed to the urologist's office. On a side note, I wonder why they only schedule these at 7am. Maybe the sperm are less active in the morning or something. LOL

I'll spare you the gory details, but the only painful part of the whole thing was the injection of the anesthesia. Other then that, it wasn't bad at all. I spent the entire day sitting on my butt, being waited on hand and foot by my awesome wife, just taking it easy.

I haven't had much pain, either, and the little I have had could be classified as mild.
