Recovery after Vasectomy Reversal Surgery
If you are planning a vasectomy reversal surgery, you are also probably wondering about the recovery process. One of the first items on many patients’ minds is what the pain will be like. Let’s take a quick look at what you can expect.
Most of our Vasectomy Reversal Patients Experience Minimal Discomfort
Due to our careful and meticulous micro-surgery, pain following the surgery is greatly minimized. While we cannot guarantee anything, and what you experience will depend on you, and your exact procedure, most of our patients can expect for the discomfort to be very mild. Often patients describe it as a sensation of “fullness.”
When Can You Resume Normal Activities After a Vasectomy Reversal?
Initially, you will want to stay home and recover for at least 2-3 days. By resting after the surgery, you will increase your overall speed of recovery, reduce discomfort, and minimize swelling. We also advise all patients to avoid heavy lifting for 4-6 weeks. Doctor Larish will carefully go over your vasectomy reversal recovery plan and discuss what is appropriate for your unique circumstances.
