I had my vasectomy about two weeks ago and I have to say, as skeptical as I was, the procedure was as painless as the doctor promised. I am a garbage man and had it done on a Saturday and took Monday off and went back to work on a Tuesday. I never felt any pain and from day one could have returned to work on that Monday. I recommend it to any one who has wanted to have it done but is skeptical. This is the way to go.
