I was in the room with my ex husband. It was vendication.
I loved every minute of it...um...wait...sorry...tangent.
He had some complications because he didn't follow dr's orders to the letter and instead of being out a week, he was out for nearly 3. (There was an issue getting to the tube on one side as well).
Smiles and good luck to you and yours.

I just suggest that he goes under instead of being awake during the procedure.

We used Dr. Stroud at DFW Urology. He was great. My hubby healed fine- he was sitting around for a couple days and couldn't lift our three kids for a week, no problems. Just follow the doctor's orders.

Go for it! It will improve your intimate relationship significantly! Just make sure he takes it easy for a day or two. The kids and I went to the store after we got him settled after surgery, came home and found out "macho man" mowed the lawn. Bad Idea!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Bush in Plano was great. We both loved him. Make sure your husband follows all doctor's orders and he'll be fine. I think I took my kids out of town the weekend after the surgery so he could heal in peace. My husband did it while awake and I got to watch the whole thing. Have lots of ice packs and lots of TLC and he should be fine. Good luck!

It is so easy for them (men)!
Get it done in the morning, and he spends the rest of the afternoon on the couch with the remote in one hand the his other hand on the bag of peas on his crotch.
The next day - he is fine!
Get him some junk food and some movies... done!
One big, important step for you - make sure he goes in to get tested when he is supposed to!!! It will take the worry out of the whole ordeal!!
