    Default DH heading back to Urologist today

    Dh had his vasectomy on Friday. During the stitching up portion on one side, "something snagged". He wasn't sure if it was internal stitching or external, but it hurt SO VERY BAD he said. Over the weekend, one side healed, the other got worse. Today he's still REALLY swollen on one side and the stitching site actually started bleeding. So they said they want to see him. My dad is being a very nice man and driving him the 3 hours to the urologist and back. They are probably going to redo the stitching and give him an antibiotic. He's not super worried about it, but I'm feeling guilty. MIL is being very supportive and says that I shouldn't feel any more guilty than he would if I were pregnant and had complications from that. We both decided on the big-V, just as we both decided on each of our pregnancies. and it's nobody's fault. simply a complication.

    Here's hoping they can really help DH and that after this he's all done with them and doesn't have to repeat anything else.

    I've already told him that if the vasectomy doesn't take that I won't make him repeat it, that I'll just schedule getting my tubes tied.

    I hope he feels better. And you definitely should not feel guilty, the doc should for screwing up! DH made an appt for a consultation, so I guess these guys were our last two

    Yikes! Poor guy! Hopefully it will be a quick fix and he will feel better. I agree, you have nothing to feel guilty about, this was a mutual decision, and sometimes things don't go as planned. Not your fault at all.

    So DH is in a good mood this evening. I called him to check in. He said the doc said he's fine. Everything looked like it was healing where the stitches are. He said that there's no infection, just inflammation longer than usual. They switched anti-inflammatories on him and told him to take more than the suggested over the counter amount. He says he's feeling better this evening. Thinks he shouldn't have been sitting in his office chair at work yesterday and that it made it probably made it worse. But it should have healed mostly by then. It's most likely taking longer because of the "snag" that happened.

    Thanks everyone.
