Thanks Jason. I had it last Monday. I'd say I felt like a weenie having my senoir citizen mom pushing me through the orlando airport.
This is my last day of bed rest. So far, this has been much more comfortable than the original vas. I feel some minor aching on one side, but different from my pre-vas pain and more like healing pain from vas.
Everyone at South Lake hospital was very nice. What is interesting is I had a different Dr perform one side for me - I forget her name but she had a Carribean accent. I am a bit dissapointed since you want the master surgeon to do everything. Hopefully the robot is a good technique equalizer so my result is still good.
The wound is very small, about an inch across the bottom of the scrotum. Interestingly, they shaved me when I was out so I woke up with a total pornstar shave.
I'm still surprised that my findings were clear fluid/no fluid at 14 mos post-vas. I wonder if inflammation quickly blocked up the epi for me and gave me congestion quickly. Then the steroid opened it up for relief in the fall when I took it.
Laying around doing nothing is not my personality, so it is tough! I feel like it's been the right move so far for me.
