'The Snip'

The local anaesthetic didn't work. When they pulled one of the tubes out to cut it I felt it and had a reflex reaction to kick out. I hit someone and heard them falling to the floor before I was knocked out completely.

Absolute bollocks (pardon the pun). They'd just stop doing the procedure and either stick in more local or abandon it and bring you back for a general anaesthetic. No way you'd just be held down and anaesthetised without your consent. You're a fantasist.

I'm no doctor but it's exactly what happened. 

As I said the anesthetic was applied using an IV drip. I've got to say as well the idea that they stop with your tubes already pulled out would be way more horrific than what actually happened. I don't know what kind of butcher shop you guys got done in. I'm just glad I was in a hospital.

You didn't get a general anaesthetic. You might have got a bit of sedation. Impressive they managed to draw up the drugs so quickly, mind.

Aye that's a fair point. My dad was talking about his that he got around 30 year ago and he was sedated. You don't get offered sedation these days, must be easier now and considered unnecessary.

This week has been horrible, the recovery is definitely worse than the procedure.

My pal had it done this week but the silly c**t won't be told anything. He has been at work and doing loads of stuff round the house. Now he's whinging it fucking hurts.

I'm no sure information on how the recovery process is overly accessible or detailed enough by the NHS. 

I'm back at work today (day 5), been taking it easyish. Didn't go out for two days and mostly spent them on the couch. Done the big shop on Saturday and a bit more again yesterday.

Still slight swelling, bruised and tender. Mild pain if I'm walking too much. The worst bit is the growing back of my pubes though and the uncomfortable Y fronts for support giving me some chafing. Braw.

My other half keeps on at me to get it done but she can GTF. No medic is coming anywhere near that part of my body with sharp implements for anything other than a life saving op.

I got it done 20-odd years ago because my wife was on so many drugs because of her condition that she couldn't take the pill or it's derivatives. She also nearly died under anaesthetic on the operating table so the chances of her surviving childbirth weren't good. So it seemed a no-brainer. I've described the procedure up thread and how, due to the tubes unravelling, I've been in mild pain and discomfort for 20 years which is worth it compared to putting my wife through trauma.

However...

 

I get more than a bit pissed off when she has those teary moments and starts greetin that she wishes she'd had more kids, seems to be more and more lately.

A couple of years after I got the snip,  Mrs Ranter announced that she was feeling broody again.

I pointed out that it was too late, and she replied "not for me, it isnt". 🤣

On the "back to work" front, I had my snip on a Saturday and was back at my (desk) job on the Monday. I can sit behind a desk as easily as at home.

Back in 1999 though I had a cyst on my right epididymis (the tube off the baw). I had it removed under general anesthetic. I was in hospital from 9 till 3 on a Friday. My baw swelled to double its size and was rock hard. On the Monday I went back to work as a door to door salesman and it wasn't all that bad. No stories of bloody clothes or anything I'm afraid.

Pretty much back to normal. Slight tenderness at the back of the left one, but that's all that's remaining.

The NHS don't really tell you what's normal and what is abnormal which leaves, what I'd say, is a week long period of looking at them and thinking 'there's no way that's normal'. That week has been the worst of it though.
