    Bored after vasectomy

    I got a vas this morning. I've watched Zoolander and Apocalypse Now whilst rotating ice packs on my balls. I also ate a container of ice cream. Boredom is starting to set in. The doc says three weeks until I can ride. I guess it's better than giving birth.

    Haven't done it yet but will be soon, my wife is pregnant with our 2nd so I have a little more time before I have to worry. Im quitting at 2 for the sake of ensuring I can support them and make sure they go to college. Being only 28 and a production worker I can't afford anymore either lol.

    Ug. I'm avoiding anything even mildly suggestive.

    All I have to say is make sure you wait the 3 weeks. I rode after about 10 days and my nuts swelled up to the size of tennis balls. The doc wouldn't see me again because it wasn't covered by insurance but thankfully he gave me a scrip for antibiotics. Scary **** I tell you.

    Hmmmm....3 weeks???

    I was back on the bike after about 7 days and did 27 mile ride.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,

    Maybe his balls are bigger? I've never heard of waiting 3 weeks. I wonder if there's a reason specific to you or if something happened during the surgery.
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    I had mine done a few weeks back. You're gonna feel like you can do anything in another few days, but take it easy or you'll regret it. Just my $0.02.

    My sack seems to be hanging lower than normal. Like I have to swing my hips forward before I sit down to avoid sitting on my balls. This is a troubling development.

    At first I was pretty worried to see this under the "Rider Injuries" category, thinking "wow, now that's a rough accident" to only realized that it was self inflicted, not chain related.

    I thought the whole point of the procedure was to make life more interesting, not less.

    "self inflicted"? That must be a DIY kit from the back of a Popular Mechanics

    The sack has returned to normal size, but I have a hematosis (large blood clot the size of a third testicle) in my spermatic cord. *highfives*

    I'm reading that it will take 3-6 months to go away. Not sure of the effect this will have on riding.

    Gentlemen, don't take this surgery lightly.

    The wife informed me I was going to be getting a vasectomy, but after reading this, I think I'll take a vow a celibacy instead.

    Ouch, brutal!

    Can you at least ride out of the saddle sometime in the near future?

    I had it done 8 years ago after our 3rd (surprise!) child was born and all is well today. I recall having like 2 weeks recovery but that was it. YMMV.

    3 weeks with no riding is better than 18 years of getting to ride a fraction of how often you ride now.

    Man three weeks is tough, I can't stand being off bikes for three days. I have been thinking about getting this done though. Does health insurance usually cover it? (US, employer based sort of health care plan.)

    Planned Parenthood frequently offers them for free, at least the one near me does.

    Build a new bike in your down time, with all the money you just saved by not having a 3rd child, you can spend something like $900,000.00 and still be ahead of the game.

    Yep, feeling better. The hematoma (blood clot) has been rediagnosed as epididymitis (swelling of the epididymus). Either way, it takes a while to go away. Instead of smuggling a ping pong ball in my scrote, it feels like a grape now.

    The doctor cleared me for riding - pain being the only risk. I've been twice with not much drama or pain.

    Just a dull ache now sitting around. Also, I have a pulling feeling just below the belt, which is where the vas deferens runs up on its way to the seminal vesicles, which is attached to the prostate. The only real pain is if I whack it on something or my waistband gets away from me taking a piss.

    BTW, this was covered under insurance, except for my deductible.
