For many of the men who come to Your Vasectomy Reversal Clinic, their biggest concern is not about the surgery itself, but what their two-week recovery period is going to look like once the surgery is completed. If you’re thinking about having vasectomy reversal, it’s important that you follow your surgeon’s instructions regarding vasectomy reversal recovery once you return home. This post will give you an idea about what that recovery period should look like.
Your First Few Days at Home
During your first few days at home, we recommend relaxing as much as possible. In fact, we recommend that you stock up on a few good books or some movies that you’ve been hoping to watch for a while. You’ll have plenty of downtime, because you’ll be staying in bed, or hanging out on your sofa, at least through the first few days.
The End of Your First Week
Once a few days have passed, you’re going to find that you start to feel quite a bit better. However, you still won’t be permitted to return to work just yet. If your job is able to be done at home, it’s perfectly fine with us if you choose to answer phone calls so you can speak with co-workers or clients, and you can even converse with them through email. We just don’t want you to do anything too strenuous, so do these activities only if you feel like it.
The Second Week
During your second week following your surgery, you’re going to be feeling even better. Even so, please heed our words of advice that it’s still important for you to take it easy. You may return to work, but you won’t be able to do any heavy lifting. If you’re active in sports, or you enjoy working out, you won’t be able to do it just yet. You also won’t be permitted to have intercourse until after your second week of surgery.
As long as you follow these instructions, you’re going to find that you heal very well, and the chances of you having any complications are very small. These two weeks will fly by, and before you know it, you’ll be back to your regular activities.
