"Dear hubby goes tomorrow (Thursday) morning. I'll be sure to give you an update after I'm done nursing the poor guy - if he's anything like some of you guys sound, I'm sure he'll be milking it through the weekend!"

And rightly so, You would have a better chance of running through hell wearing gasoline soaked undewear than getting me to get that, I cringe just thinking about it and I have had a couple major surgery's and that one just ain't going to happen.

I should have never looked at this thread now I'm all weirded out.

Jeff

LOL, Jeff.

Hubby came through just fine. After a couple days of moaning, grimacing, and walking like an ole time cowboy, he says "that wasn't as bad as I thought" The boys are still a little tender, though. I think a week is just about right for total R&R.

Had it done 4 years ago. Besides a Dr. with zero personality and the uncomfortable 'tugging and snipping' it was not that bad. I was snipped Friday AM, sat with ice in my lap for pretty much the whole weekend and was mobile on Monday.

Was 'back in action' a week later. Of course, you are not 'clear of the boys' for about a month, but hey, I wanted to put myself at ease that everything was still in working order ;-)

Had my "Counseling" session at the Urologist. This basically entailed watching a super cheezy 70's film about the procedure. Funny thing is that the glasses that the wife wore in the film are now back in style :rm_shifty: ( I still dont understand that one). They really go out of their way to scare the crap out of you prior to getting the procedure. I guess its truly one of those things that has the potential to really change your life. In fact, California actually has a law that MANDATES a 72 hour waiting period between the counseling session and the procedure. Id like to know what meathead wasted my tax dollars authoring THAT bill. But I digress. My big day is next Thursday and I will have a couple of HD-DVD movies, xbox 360 and a six pack or 3 of Dead Guy Ale to get me through the weekend. Then my rings, some newly built paralletes, and my pullup bar should get me through the rest of the recovery. I think that I will plan on having my new pendlay bar and bumper set arrive at my doorstep 2 weeks from the procedure. That should get me back into the swing of things!

Thanks for all of the support!!

Nick
