Like others have said, follow the doc's advice. I took it REALLY easy for the first couple of days. As in, I didn't get off the couch for anything other than calls of nature. Not that I was in pain or anything, but just as a general precaution. Didn't do anything too stressful for a week or two. Then things were pretty much back to normal. The surgery itself was fine. A couple of moments of fairly intense discomfort, and two very brief spikes of pain when the doc injected the local anesthetic. The most difficult part was trying to stay relaxed during the process. (Definitely not the time you want to be clenching unexpectedly!)

And in response to the_bird, no changes.

No noticable difference for me.

For me, the worst part was the shot. The doc has to find and hold the vas and sticks the needle right in it. I thought I was going to throw up! Recovery wasn't bad. Sit on your ass for a few days and have SWMBO keep your glass of homebrew full. That's the least she can do!

[strange] When my wife and I met with the doctor for a pre-op visit (his policy), he asked her if she wanted to watch the procedure. My wife loves watching surgeries and weird, gross stuff like that (I can't stand it!) Anyway, she said yes and watched the whole thing. I get the feeling she got some kind of weird, twisted satisfaction out of it. [/strange]

It doesn't affect any of that at all. You'll be just like your old self, only unleaded now.

So, after you had recovered, and she suggested a little "doctor/patient" roleplaying, I'm guessing you politely declined?

No, I just said, "OK. I'll be the doctor. First, I'll need you to undress."

Planning on it in the near future. Several friends and my dad have had it done. All said the same thing. Take it easy for a few days and you should be fine. All of em agreed that the smoke was the worst part. and the hot nurse in there watching.

My experience was twenty years ago and was done with micro-incisions. A little tender for a week, but no problems overall. Didn't have trouble walking, no scars, no post-op bleeding, etc. I think the worst moment was when the nurse tried to move a 500 watt spotlight with her elbow! I just grabbed the base and re-positioned it.

[No performance hit, either. In fact, it was probably a plus.]
