After our 2nd we had a deal. If she went C-section she'd get her tubes done, otherwise I'd get clipped. I lost.
I was one of the lucky ones that the Dr put to sleep for it. Shot in the IV and I was off in dreamland. Woke up thirsty and went home to put ice on the boys. Got it done Thursday and by Monday everything was good-to-go. Probably was fine Sat, but I took the extra attention (meals served on couch, unlimited TV & playstation).
It's not a big deal, and the knowledge that you can have sex forever and not worry about more kids is awesome!
Like was mentioned earlier Rose Bowl+Unlimited Worry-Free Sex=Win. If you are getting it done, it has been suggested to get it done for NCAA tournament which is a great idea.
I had one a few months ago. You get lots of happy pills. That's nice. But when they say take it easy for a few days, LISTEN. I didn't and my recovery took a bit longer. And taking your kids to a UM basketball game, sitting in the very top row, and having to run to and from the concourse a half dozen times because your kids can't synchronize their potty breaks is NOT taking it easy.
Don’t want to debate the merits of the vasectomy, but here is an idea for those that may be thinking about having one.
This year may be to late, but the best four days to sit around and watch TV would be during the first weekend of the NCAA tournament. You get the procedure done that Thursday morning (3/18/2010 this year) and have a guilt free road to four days of icing the boys, watching basketball and being waited on hand and foot. No honey do list, no guilt trips, just four days of bliss (once you take some of the happy pills).
Took it easy for a week. No regrets.
Curious though. For those of you who also had the procedure, was your urologist a comedian? Mine certainly was, or tried to be anyway. I suppose, when you have to fondle men's genitals for a living, you do what you can to break the ice and comedy is a practical approach.
Also, my doc's assistant was hot. Depending on how you look at it, this could be good or bad, but I found it to be a pleasant distraction.
I hafta admit, that's the first time for that mental image for me.
...I've never missed...that....
I wanted more kids, but wifey didn't like being pregnant, so she took matters into her own hands (the good way).
