The story of my journey to (hopefully) get a vasectomy

Getting close to the surgery date!

Today is Thursday May 16th, my surgery date is Friday May 25th. Only 8 more days until the big day!! I have since let a few people at work know about this due to the fact that I HATE taking days off of work, and I had to take off next weekend for the recovery (I work weekends only due to my school schedule). Of course, everyone thinks I am crazy, haha. I think I am somewhat sane now, but I would indeed go crazy if I had another child!

I really do not know what to think at this point. I think I am at a point right now where it hasn’t hit me as reality yet, even if there is only 8 days to go, haha. My girlfriend did have two wisdom teeth pulled out last weekend, and was in a little bit of pain for the day, but good to go the next day. I am hoping my recovery will go just as smoothly. A lot of what I have read online, people who had the vasectomy where saying that after a day off their feet, the pain was almost gone. The thing that concerns me is, I hate being off my feet, I am a very active person. Most the bad things I have read so far are from people who said they were in no pain the next day, and took that as a sign that they were good to go, and went on about their every day business. That definitely sounds like something I will do if I am not careful…

I am glad I wrote this post, it reminds me that I need to call the scalpel doctor and cancel my appointment, haha.

I got the paperwork from my possible doctor today…

So yea, I got the paperwork from the “free vasectomy” doctor today. So as of right now, my appointment for surgery is June 2nd. I am still not sure if I will be able to get that weekend off for the surgery though, or if I will have to reschedule it. I do feel a bit better about him at this point in time than I originally did. At first his method (no permanent clip on the vas) kind of scared me, but I have been reading a little more about it, and it seems like a legit method.

My boss actually asked that I take off the weekend BEFORE June 2nd. The weekend before is the weekend that the traveling doctor will be in town. Something in my gut (or is it in my nuts?) is telling me that I should go with the traveling doctor. I don’t know what it is, but the “free” doctor gives me bad vibes. Maybe its the fact that I have never seen this guy’s face, and do not know anything about him. I do not know.

Anyways, the plan for tomorrow is to call the traveling doctor’s office tomorrow and see what they have to say…This may get interesting!
