My spouse had a vasectomy in 2000 and an unsuccessful reversal in 2008. We are considering a second reversal.
1. What things should we look for or consider when choosing a doctor?
2. Would you normally recommend a revision surgery on a failed reversal with the original vasectomy being so far out?
3. Is there anyway to know whether a V-E is needed prior to surgery?
4. Can a redo be done in a VV fashion? If so, why would the first have failed?
5. What is a good price range for this surgery?
I would like to get a vasectomy. I have 1 daughter that is 1.5 yrs old. My wife and I have been together for 10 years and we cannot have more kids. Rather than have her go through a painful tubal ligation, I told her i would find a way to get a vasectomy. Is there any way to get this done for free?
My husband got a vasectomy 2 months ago. We both kind of regret it, but he won't reverse it. Dr cut cauterized and used titanium clips. We kind of hope it would fail, can clips fall off and maybe regrow back together. What are titanium clips used for anyway?
It is slightly painful. I went in and urologist said should go away with heat, anti-inflammatory meds and no major exercise. Called me in Bactrim 1.5 days later when not getting better. Any second opinion suggestions? Figured I will give it another few days and hopefully will go away, I expected a small lump, but not this size.
My husband had a vasectomy when he was 26, +/- 7 years ago, he had never had a problem before the op but in the last +/- 4-5 years , he ejaculates almost immediately after inserting himself in me for intercourse. What could help this not happen, and could this be caused from the vasectomy?
My husband had a vasectomy 6 years ago before we were ever together. We want to have a baby together but he does not want to have to go through the pain of reversal due to pain meds ineffective and had to feel everything during vasectomy. Is there a relatively inexpensive way to extract the sperm and not have to reverse the vasectomy?
I have heard that I could not surf for 6-8 weeks after a vasectomy because of pollutants and bacteria in the ocean. Is this true? I need to know since I am planning on a surf trip in the next month or so.
