    As the doc said everyone is different. I would give it a week before planning any long ride. Don't want to ruin your trip. I took it easy for a week, 39 yrs ago.

    You should be good by now!! Lol

    Except it's been a couple years and mine hurt today for some reason. :deal
    Mostly good to go though. I recommend stretchy athletic underwear and standing in the pegs!

    24hrs of Religious packing the boys with frozen peas and vegetables and you will be good to go. That's what I did and way laying tile within 3 days of surgery with no ill effects.. Good luck..

    Well, I'm happy to report that I was back on the bike in just two days, and a week later I feel pretty damn great. I'm still a TINY bit sore, but I think it might be due to wearing such tight underwear since the process. It's a VERY VERY minor almost not noticeable dull ache along the sides, but I'm still planning on setting off on a large trip in a week!

    Having them nipped is no big deal. Ice and relax for a few days and you are good to go. Having one removed is a whole other level. Took me 6 weeks after that and we took off for what we affectionately called the "One ball ride" in Arkansas.
