TMI: Thoughts on my recent vasectomy…

This may be (probably is) a post you have no interest in reading.  By all means, don’t.  Just putting down some random thoughts about the procedure. Don’t worry, no pics on this post.

…the decision was made b/c my wife and I have decided we’re done having kids, and the vasectomy’s more of a sure-thing than my wife having to remember to take her pill each day.

…I like to say I’ve taken myself out of the gene pool without actually dying.

…since my wife’s a vet, I can’t stop thinking I’ve been “fixed”, minus the whole removal of anything.

…as I wrote earlier, I’ve been reading the “Song of Ice and Fire” series, and can’t help but think that had vasectomies been available to kings, it would have helped keep the reign of Westeros from being so damned complicated.

…the worst part of the procedure? The injections of the local anesthetic – they were uncomfortable (and this, kids, is what we call ‘understatement’). Don’t get me wrong, they weren’t painful, just not pleasant (I suppose a shot to the scrotum shouldn’t be).

…my wife was in the room while the doctor performed the procedure.  They were talking about neutering dogs while he was working on me.  It was a bit disconcerting.

…guys, if you ever undergo a vasectomy, frozen peas and a jock strap are your dear friends.

…after two days of rest I was back on my feet (literally). While horizontal I started watching “The Wire” – fantastic show so far.

…actually, now that I think about it, the worst part was getting the two stitches removed, particularly the first one, which involved some tugging.

…went for my first run since the procedure this morning – I was a little tentative for the first 5 minutes or so, but everything seems back to normal.  Except, of course, for the capability of making babies thing.

…if you’re ever over for dinner at my house and you’re served peas, don’t worry, the bags I used were thrown away.
