    Getting Snipped. Post Op Advice

    So tomorrow morning I am getting snipped.

    Anyone have any advice and must haves to get you through the first couple of days.

    Also they said I should be OK to drive myself home so I am planning on doing that. Is this a good idea?

    Tissues, for the first 60 minutes you realize what you've just done.

    Then for the next 60 minutes, when you realize how much more you can do.

    Even if you are feeling good the first day or two, make sure you relax and don't slack on icing things down. I think my recovery was slowed down by the fact that I relaxed, but didn't do much icing, and things were pretty painful for the rest of the week.

    Look a little pathetic for some extra TLC from the lady in your life for doing this noble thing.

    Make sure if you are taking anything for the procedure that you take it early so you are okay to drive yourself when the time comes.

    Take your ibuprofen when you are supposed to even if you don't feel like you need it.

    Go scalpeless.

    Wear the tighty whiteys to support the boys for a couple of days.

    Good luck, you should be just fine.

    She went through three C-Sections so I don't think she will have any sympathy for me at all.

    suprised they will let you drive, they made me have someone bring me and wait for me. they gave me some OXY, but it really didn't have much impact on me.

    I did mine on a Thursday and played golf on Saturday and Sunday. I did the peas on Thursday, but just had a OXY and a little vodka after that and was fine.

    As long as the procedure goes ok, you will be fine.

    Don't forget about the 75 releases your wife has to help you out with to ensure that you clean out all the straglers.

    NEVER let her forget you did this. It's the ace up your sleeve for ALL time.

    Maybe bowling can be substituted for golf this time of year.

    My dad (I know, its kinda awkward) told me when he got snipped, the doc told him to buy a 2x4 and a case of beer.
    Dad knew what the case of beer was for but asked what the 2x4 was for and the doc said its to bite down on when he has to pee.
