    Hey, it was in bad taste, but you started it. Now, I'm off to find a bra big enough to hold my enormous man-titties.

    Can't be any worse than the DivaCup thread aka SpecificToWomen... which should be re-named to SpecificToVeryHighMaintenanceWomen... IMHO

    A couple days with ice on my balls and I was ready to go. Been shooting blanks since.
    A friend won't get it done. Something about his manhood. What a pussy. Lets see, condoms the rest of your life or lettin' er rip anytime anyplace? Easy for me, and easier procedure. Do it. You'll be glad you did.

    Ice is your freind! and I don't mean in the scotch your not suppose to drink.
    I knew for over a year that I had it done. Not pain, but sometimes felt like I had pulled spagetti from somewhere in my abdomin. Usually when I picked up something. I was swollen, not too large, almost baseball size for a week. Ice helped a lot. for six months I was slightly swollen, just enough to be very tender. Your system still produces the sperm for some time, (differs with diff people) and that backs up, causes swelling and some minor discomfort for a while. Mine was done by a Dr who does a lot of them. The proceedure involved cutting the 2 tubes, (I actually had 3, unusual) and then bending them over,tying them, and stiching them to the sack so thay can't heal back together.
    The worst part, Mine DID NOT WORK! So make sure you give some samples, until all those little swimmers are dead and gone.

    Just wait till you stop pissing blood and then head out, simple as that.

    You Mary's! I did my own snip and rode a horse the same day. Training was using my BMW R1200GSA factory seat for a year to toughen the boys up.

    Warning Will Robinson! Dont Read This Reply! I got mine snipped,the right one swole up to nearly 4" and stayed that way for many moons. Like 6 months at least,Hydroseal is what the jackass doc called it,he even jabbed it with a bic pen size tube to drain it then it swole up again right away. Hurt? I thought Id die!
    It throbbed painfully for the whole 6 months to some degree.

    The only thing that fixed it was a 2 week drinking excursion to Baja on my Lc4 620SC. I think the jackhammer vibration shook things right again.

    But Yeah,get it snipped and plan a trip,shouldnt be an issue.

    I got snipped on a Fri and felt fantastic the rest of the day. Drove 120 miles the next day to pick up a boat motor I had bought on Craigslist. The fellow had a motor lift and lifted the pallet and motor into the back of the truck and I didn't lift a finger to help. A few hours after I got home the swelling and pain started. I was back to work on Monday but wasn't feeling all that great til the next weekend. I was icing and taking a vicodin here and there to get through the days. About 3 months later, all of that was behind me and I hit a good sized ditch on the CRF230 and it felt like I had been mule kicked in the sack:eek1 No real problems after that.

    People react differently according to their anatomy, the doc, post care, etc. I would plan on at least one week post snip before going on a trip (hey, that rhymes!).

    Surgery in the morning. Felt fine all day, so like a fool I did my normal Taekwondo session in the evening. Big mistake. Split my stitches. Ouch! After that, I took it easier for a few days.

    I rode home from the doc's office after mine.....the numbness hadn't worn off yet.

    "Hung" around the home for two days after that with tight underwear on and a gel-pack of blue ice.

    Uncomfortableness faded and two weeks later, no problems doing much of anything.

    I'd wait a week for 400 + a day. Make sure you get a good doc. Don't lift anything heavy for a few days. Ice and whiskey, keep them separate.

    I both perform this surgery and have had it done. Three days of rest on the couch, keep a cold beer on it. Should be able to go to most work after that, wait a week to do any real riding. Some people need less, some people think they need less and swell up like a softball.

    Get it done on Friday and make sure you sit on your butt Saturday and Sunday with frozen peas on the swollen area. I went to a wedding the day after, and was down and out for 2 weeks they swelled up and tender so bad I couldn't ride for over a month. I would take it easy for a week and you should be fine.

    The above two have it right. Do it on a Friday, ice it and stay your butt on the couch Sat. & Sun. Be ginger for the next week. The only diff you'll notice post procedure is a reduced volume of organic excess. :huh

    I think you'll find everyone is different and every Doctor is too.
    I had mine done 25 years ago and everything still works as it's designed to. I had it done on a Friday and I felt so good that I picked up and engine block on Saturday. No problem but I ended up with a black and blue spot from my crotch to my knee. I guess I pulled something huh. I would have ridden on Saturday except like I said the engine was out of the bike:huh

    I got mine done in Xela, Guatemala. $35 cash!

    No stitches, they used superglue. I was told no riding for two weeks. My group was going to head out in five days. CJ came along on his R100GS/PD right when I left the clinic. I got on his bike for a lift home.

    No pain, no issues, no complications. That was three years ago. Feeling fine.

    I know people who had it done for $2000 in the US and who had complications and swelling. It's a roll of the proverbial dice.
