That's pretty much what we want to know lol

Jamie's going to make an appointment to see the doctor because he needs to get on something for blood pressure anyway (my dad has an automatic cuff since he's on bp meds and needs to take his daily and while I run in the low 100s/60s, Jamie's consistently getting 160s/90s) so he'll talk to the doctor then about having a vasectomy done and get a referral if our regular doctor doesn't do them. Thanks to all of you who answered my questions. We really appreciate it!

I highly suggest he goes to a Urologist for it., Eric had his done at 10am and by 4pm he was unloading 400sq of wood flooring. He was cut,tied and burned,..lol.. had zero pain. I suggest also compression shorts/tight boxer briefs, to be worn after for a good week..Eric swears that is what helped him. If you were to ask Eric he'd tell ya the worst was the hair regrowth after...lol.. he over shaved which didn't help..lol

Jacky had it done about 4 years ago. Like Alison, I highly recommend going to a urologist. I stayed in the room (done in the doc's office) during the procedure & we all just chit-chatted the whole time. Then we went out to eat. He was cut, tied, & burned also. Jacky actually did have a bit of pain for a little while. The first couple of days he stayed on the couch with an ice pack. After that he was fine, but had occassional "discomfort" for about a year. On the whole, though, it's been fine. And yes! The hair regrowth was probably the worst part of it for Jacky, too.

Our insurance doesn't require referrals so I looked up on our doc find thing and there is exactly one urologist in our town on our insurance. So Jamie's going to call him today and make an appointment. He still needs to go to the family doc for the blood pressure, but he doesn't have to wait for that appointment and the for another appointment. We've made the decision and now it's like, okay, get this done lol The urologist is in his 50s so we figure he's probably done quite a few vasectomies and should be good at it lol

lol Yeah, that's how we were, too. We debated for a couple of months whether we would want another baby or not. We finally decided on a Sunday that, no, we were done. The very next day I called the urologist & got the appointment for the following Friday. lol The one we used was probably in his late 30's-early 40's.

My husband and I decided since I went through the pregnancy and birth he'd get the vasectomy. It took 4 years to find a urologist that would do it because of our age and number of children. He was put fully asleep, Cut, tied, burned and clipped. He refused to stay still for 3 days. For a guy that doesn't take pain well he had no pain.
