To help me make a decision I need input from you guys (and gals - if you have seen this first hand, so to speak).

I have no need to father more children. I am contemplating getting 'the snip'. Just wanted to gauge the aftermath of the doc.

There is some residual soreness but in my case it wasn't all that severe. I was sore for awhile and then it passed with no adverse effects. In my case it was well worth doing. The whole procreation thing becomes a non-issue and you can play risk free with the missus. The worst part was the actual procedure. It's like getting your boys slowly squeezed.

I don't like the sound of that.

Been there and done that. The worst of it was the hair growing back. Best of all, it will give you a sense of freedom.

Good luck

I heard they load you up on valium... that would be cool, but not sure it would be enough. I'm afraid I just can't have it done, but the wife might make me later on.

I voted "Ralph Nader" on account that I won't need to get it done. I'm broken . We had to go through In-Vitro fertilization to have our child and with six embyos on ice, we have three more chances for another kid. If things were different though, I wouldn't hesitate to get it done.

I am still in the recovery stage (from snip last Thursday). I honestly was expecting little to no effect given what everyone else had told me. I am still having soreness and discomfort - sleeping on my back, or on my sides with a pillow between my legs.. squeezing bad bad idea. I think in the end it'll be well worth it.

The actual procedure wasn't bad at all. Some discomfort, but I was able to walk out without any problem (still numbed up). 2 hours later I was in bad bad pain for about 4-5 hours before I was just so tired, and the vicodin finally started doing something after the second dose.

I had it done - wasn't a big deal. Just do what the doc says and take it easy for the better part of the week. I was advised to use a bag of frozen peas to keep things cool - worked like a champ!!

I've got no reason to get it done at this point. I don't want any more kids and the wife had her tubes tied when the twins were born. She initially wanted me to get fixed but decided to get it done "while they were in there".
