My procedure

Today I put a end to the question -"will I have any more kids?"The answer is --no. I got to experience the pleasure of having a vasectomy. I am slowly recovering and should be able to walk normally soon. In case anyone is wondering what a vasectomy feels like-- I can only describe it as the feeling you get when someone kicks you in the crotch, repeatedly, and it won't go away.
The procedure starts with 2 shots to the crotch. The first hurts. The second burns. I decided not to watch the rest of the procedure and covered my face with a "TIME" magazine. After the shots, the procedure isn't painful, but you can still feel the doctor moving things around down there, which you can imagine isn't pleasant. I think the most unpleasant part came when the doctor began to sow up the stitches. That felt pretty weird, like she (the doctor) was pulling something out of there.
After I returned home, I quickly discovered it is not a good idea to have your kids jump on you. I also think I might skip my daily bike ride. Frozen peas never felt so good. I guess it is worth it if it gives me the peace of mind that I won't be fathering anymore children. I love the two I have- one boy and one girl. But I think another would be too much.

You are The Man! Facing a guy's dark fear of shots in the crotch, indignity, and fiddling around "down there" all for the sake of your family is worthy of admiration. You guys that have had the procedure make me want to buy a bag of frozen peas just because it sounds so soothing.

Thanks for the image!!! I used to eat frozen peas as a kid - they taste as close to candy as any vegetable ever will. Now that good memory is forever tainted.
