Snip Snip - the side effects of a vasectomy
DH is thinking of getting snipped - we're done having kids.
Almost all Dr.s say there is no side-effects, The procedure is down, a day or two of rest and an ice pack and he's done.
However, the internet says shows a very different side. Men reporting pain, a constant pain for months following, the vas deferns (or epidideymis) bursting from pressure, swelling continuing for weeks.
So two quesitons -
Do you know any men who have had it done - did they have any issues a day or two post procedure?
Second - it seems like this is the case with everything medical. Medicine/Dr.s/AMA/Hospitals say whatever procedure/operation/drug/etc is safe and then the internet shows some pretty bad horror stories resulting from "Safe" procedures/operations/drugs/etc.
Do you trust that something is safe b/c "medicine" says it is - or do you think "big medicine" is just looking out for themselves and will say anything?
