I also posted this on the TTC with Male Infertility board. But has anyones' DH done the embolization or. surgical ligation for Varicocele? We are trying to decide what would be best. I worry about putting something in his body, but not sure if we want to have his abdomen cut open either. How big is the scar with the embolization vs. surgical ligation. What about pain with both? I have read that the coil with embolization can cause pain later on. We are so confused as to what to do.

Has the doctor offered any thoughts on which would be better? I don't know anything about it, sorry. Also, I know my insurance offers a nurse service that you can call and talk with someone about medical things. Does yours offer something like that where you can get another opinion from a medical expert without having to actually see someone? The only other thing I can think of is to google it and see what other people had to say that way.

Not really. My DH is seeing another doctor tomorrow to get more info on the embolization. I did some googling but most people only post the bad and not the good. I was hoping for some first hand experience on here.

Just wanted to update y'all. Not sure if it matters but it makes me feel better to post somewhere what's going on!

So my DH has surgery scheduled for the next of next week! I didn't think he would be having this done so soon. I really thought it would be more like October. I'm freaking out a little. I don't like the idea of that part of his body being messed with! Prayers that this will work and give us our baby.

I had a dream last night that really bothered me. I was pregnant and went into labor. We had no idea we were pregnant since I was busy with school and did not notice any changes and got AF every month. We had a boy and were totally unprepared. We had nothing for him and could not even decide on a name for 2 days! I told my DH, well at least you don't need surgery anymore.
Crazy part is when I woke up and turned on the TV, "I didn't know I was pregnant" was on. LMAO!

Good luck with the surgery. Praying it all goes well, he heals quickly and then you guys get a bfp. It's great things are moving forward so quickly.

Good luck girl! I just went through my DF getting surgery and I know how it feels to see them go through all that. It may be really hard on them, but it's hard on us too. I hope everything goes smoothly and you get your BFP soon to make it all worth it!

It's supposed to be Next Friday, but that depends on our insurance. Hoping everything goes as planed.

The morbid part of me wants to see if I can be in the room and watch! I'm taking an anatomy class right now and it would be awesome to see something like that up close.

I'm not sure what our plan will be after his procedure. I know they will want to do another SA after 90 days, so might just ntnp until Christmas. Ugh! Why can't we be like "normal" people where one day I realize that AF is 2 weeks late... All this planning sucks!
