I am trying to talk DH into getting this done after we have one more baby. He said no at first and now he says he will think about it. I want your DH's to be honest. But what is it like getting it done. How much pain were they in after they had it done? Any info at all they would like to share about the procedure? Thanks!

My husband had this done while I was pregnant with our second child. It was his idea since the down time for him was so much shorter and the procedure was much less expensive. The doctor gave him a prescription for some kind of "relaxation" drug. He took one on the hour for three hours before going in. He remembers very little from the procedure (however, I remember him being very willing when the nurse offered to help him get dressed afterward - it was a hoot!). The pain was a lot less than he expected, he only took Motrin the first day because I insisted, in fact, he was up driving that evening (not recommended, however, because the drugs they had given him before the procedure made him a little loopy and he got lost). He had two doctors, one with way more experience and the side he did never bothers hubby, the other side will hurt once in a while, but not bad. His advice: get a Dr with experience.
