    Riding after vasectomy - how soon?

    For those who have had a vasectomy, how long after the surgery did you wait before riding again? I know there must be some people out there that have been in this situation...

    The nurse told me to wait at least a week...

    If you were told to wait a week. Wait at least that if after a week you have any discomfort or pain I would not advise riding a bike...

    About a week after mine, in '98, I had to Q.C. over a rough (very rough) dirt cut/fill operation in one of the old Chevy Diesel 4X4 pick-ups the military had at the time.....I felt every bump....and it was still painful. I wouldn't advise anything like that for a while, at least not until you can jump off a curb without wincing. It also depends on your bike too. I wouldn't want to be all crunched up against a gas tank. A cruiser/tourer may be a better ride.

    I'm sure you know about frozen corn and peas? It works great. A couple 3 or 4 bags, rotating through the freezer will provide alot of comfort.

    I'm going to go through motorcycle withdrawal... I haven't gone a week without riding since late february or so.

    Yeah I've got a Ziploc freezer bag I fill with ice and do a 20 minute rotation, works pretty well. My bike is a 650r so yea, crotch just about against the tank. Might be more than a week then I suppose...

    Have the procedure scheduled for January, that way you'll be less tempted to go out and ride.

    A week was morethan enough for me. I had a ZX6 at the time. try short rides first. Ice is ok frozen peas work better the`re small and comform better then ice cubes. I used frozen blueberrys and made a pie after they thawed out
    Enjoy life you never know

    I just had it done today... had to get it before my health insurance deductible resets on July 1. Getting it done today meant I paid $0 for it.

    Oh, don't worry, you'll pay tonight when you're trying to sleep...

    It's not actually all that bad. Just relax and take it easy for a few days. Peas or corn work alot better than just the ice though.

    Hahaha! I have 2 cups, one for 2 months, one for 4 months. My wife is staying on birth control until the count comes back 0. I love my kids, but I sure don't want any more!

    The act of riding is a form of meditation, because the concentration that's required to safely ride a motorcycle tends to focus the mind in a way that eliminates other mental distractions that might interfere with the mission. This creates a single-mindedness that, in effect, displaces the continuous stream of thoughts that normally flow through our consciousness.

    It will be worth it...

    It isn't that bad now. I have some pretty bad anxiety when it comes to shots/surgeries/etc, and that makes everything worse, even if it doesn't hurt. So mine wasn't easy like so many others I've talked to. It probably wouldn't have been that bad if I did not have such bad anxiety. They gave me a Valium and that didn't even help at all. But it's only a one-time thing and once it's done, it's done, so it's worth it.
