Many people think of vasectomy reversal as an uncomfortable procedure, but this is absolutely not the case for most of our vasectomy reversal clinic patients. We offer a few options to ensure that your post-vasectomy reversal recovery is as comfortable as possible, including:
The On-Q Pain Buster Pump
If you request it during your initial consultation, Dr. Kuang will connect the On-Q Pain Buster Pump to the scrotal area during the final stages of surgery. The advent of the On-Q Pain Buster Pump has made it easier and more convenient to manage pain after your vasectomy reversal. If you request the On-Q Pain Buster Pump during your initial consultation, medication will be delivered directly to the vasectomy reversal surgery site on your scrotum to help your recovery. The comfort it provides makes it easier to care for the surgery site after the procedure.
Over-the-Counter Pain Relievers
Pain during your vasectomy reversal recovery period can often be managed by taking over-the-counter pain medication, like acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Take these after the procedure as needed in order to help give you comfort and to reduce swelling in the scrotal area.
Part of your care regimen after surgery will be to take any prescribed medication, including antibiotics to minimize the risk of infection (and uncomfortable complications) and pain medications that will help to make you feel more comfortable. Minimizing the chance of infection will also minimize inflammation to maximize healing. Make sure you take any antibiotic or anti-inflammatory medication according to directions.
Ensuring that you follow the prescribed care plan after surgery will allow you to heal faster, giving you the ability to make your post-surgery recovery more comfortable that will allow you to start trying to conceive as quickly as possible.
