March mayhem game plan: A vasectomy
Tuesday, March 1, 2016
Admit it, gents. All you want to do during March and April is watch basketball. That makes it the perfect time to have a vasectomy.
Why? Because sitting around, doing nothing, is the best way to recover from the procedure, says Dr. Richard Windsor of Aurora BayCare Urological Surgeons in Green Bay and Marinette.
“We’ve found some men choose to have a vasectomy at this time of year just so they can stay home, put their feet up and watch the games,” Windsor says.
We’re not kidding. When BayCare Clinic advertised the procedure in 2008 – “Are you thinking it’s time for a vasectomy? Trust Your ‘Boys’ with Our Boys” – our ad was featured on “The Late Show With David Letterman.”
Seriously, though, a vasectomy is a form of permanent birth control for men, rendering them sterile.
Men are urged to stay off their feet as much as possible for the first two days after having a vasectomy, and to avoid heavy lifting or exercise for four or five days.
