The procedure – no-scalpel vasectomy – was surprisingly pain free and there were only two very brief periods of mild discomfort, and that was having denied the offered valium prescription for the procedure. On top of that, while it is ongoing, you are allowed to watch TV to distract you from worrying about what’s happening. After channel surfing for most of the procedure, I found Parks & Rec and was actually laughing while the doctor finished up!
The recovery was an absolute cake walk: I took Friday off from work for the day of the procedure, and afterward took one over the counter Tylenol when I first got home, then kicked back watching movies and playing video games all weekend sitting atop rotating bags of frozen peas. I experienced no pain during the entire recovery period and was back in the office on Monday!
Guys, if you’ve wanted to get a vasectomy, but have been understandably nervous about it, choose Dr. Parviz Kavoussi and you have absolutely nothing to worry about!
My only regret now that I have gone through the entire process, including the follow-up analysis, is that I won’t have a chance to work with Austin Fertility ever again. Too bad they don’t practice general family medicine on the side!
