Gettin neutered vs. gettin fixed-there’s a difference.

Did you know?

  • When a male dog is neutered he is having his testicles removed.
  • Testosterone and sperm are produced in the testicles, however only sperm goes out through the vas deferns.
  • Although produced in the testicles, testosterone goes out into the body through the blood system.
  • So…a vasectomy, which severs and occludes the vas tubes, prevents sperm from being in the ejaculate and does not affect the testosterone level.
  • Tell that to your friends at work who, upon hearing that you are having a vasectomy, that no, you won’t be having a voice like a girl. Now you know why.
  • After a vasectomy you are infertile, not impotent.
  • Because the testosterone remains the same you have no change in your libido.
  • It takes about 30 ejaculations to clear the vas tube of sperm beyond the vasectomy site so you will be advised to use protection until the urologist confirms…

How long out of work if you have a vasectomy reversal? Ga Vasectomy Reversal.

Patients often ask if the post procedure course of a reversal is similar to that of a vasectomy. Usually not. The reversal is a much longer and involved procedure.

Medical aphorism: “The art of getting away with it.”

Patients who are considering a vasectomy reversal usually have a busy life. They to a person don’t like being out of work and even if they did their employer probably won’t view a reversal as medically necessary. So a common question is how soon can I go back to work and how soon to resume working out? Well…this is where “getting away with it” comes in.

Since a reversal is a procedure which usually takes a bit over two hours, the incision on each side is open for about an hour each and this lends itself to bruising and scrotal swelling. A patient can physically go back to work in three to four days but because of the nature of the procedure and the fact that the scrotum is a dependent structure (hangs down) and is potential space (not tight like…

What to expect after a vasectomy reversal…is it like having a vasectomy?

What You Can Expect After a Vasectomy Reversal

Vasectomy reversals are longer and more complicated than the original vasectomy procedure. Because of that, recovery takes more time, although it is still fairly quick. In general, side effects after a reversal tend to be mild and disappear within a short period of time.

The First Few Days

During the first couple of days after surgery, you may experience slight swelling or bruising in the scrotum. In addition, the surgery and anesthesia could cause a headache, general pain, and nausea, among other short-lived side effects.

To soothe the scrotal area and help minimize swelling during the first few days, you’ll need to elevate your legs, stay off your feet, and use ice packs. You’ll need to avoid submerging the incision in water fort he first 48 hours after the procedure–showers after a day or so are just fine but…

What does the vasectomy site look like at the time of a reversal?

There are several things about the picture above. First of all, the vas deferens has been isolated and is ready to begin the vasectomy reversal procedure proper. There are basically three parts to a vasectomy reversal.

  1. First you have to dissect out the  vas deferens and identify the vasectomy site. In the case above this was easy. You see in the middle of the picture a conglomeration of clips which were used to do the vasectomy. I like it when clips have been used. The area is much easier to find and there is less damage to the vas deferens.
  2. Secondly, the vasectomy site is excised and fresh vascularized vas deferens are delineated and prepared to reconnect.
  3. Finally the actual reversal. The microscope is brought into the operative field and after having approximated the two ends…the reversal is performed under the microscope using microscopic suture, usually 12-14 on each side.
