    I have my doubts that all of the people claiming to have complications really did ;)

    No complications. Wear compression shorts for a week or so. Had mine done on Thursday afternoon and was back at work on Monday and, frankly, could have gone back on Friday if I had wanted to.

    Had mine done by a urologist in office, no scalpel. Every horror story I've ever heard involves letting a general practice doc do it.

    Whole other discussion but for our second the wife had a c-section scheduled and was going to have a tubal at the same time but the baby had other ideas and came three weeks early. She still had the c-section but they wouldn't do the tubal because it had been less than 30 days since she signed the paperwork. For me, I saw the urologist on Tuesday and had the procedure on Thursday.

    Had mine done over a year ago at the iowa clinic. The only painful part of the procedure was when they injected the numbing medicine into the tubes. Like very brief searing pain. Had pretty bad discomfort for a couple weeks and one side swelled up pretty good. A year later and there is still discomfort down there, but not constant. Seems like I'm that 1-2% that have longer term discomfort from it. Oh well. It sucks, but having another kid would suck more.

    I had a reversal done. It's a 3-4 hour surgery vs the 15 minute vasectomy. Hurts worse, for longer. Insurance covers zero - cost us $5000 I think. Ended up not working (5 years post vasectomy). No refunds.

    On the bright side, we started down the path of foster-to-adopt and ended up with an incredible little red headed boy with Down Syndrome. He's been in our house since 7 weeks, adopted him at 18 months, and he'll be 3 in a couple weeks.

    Impossible. As some of you may know, whenever I want to know the facts on any subject, I turn to TV sitcoms, the go-to source for all book larnin'. And according to Thursday night's episode of the Unicorn, you should be lying on the couch with a bag of frozen peas in your crotch and grimmacing in pain every time you laugh.
