Vasectomy Reversal in Lake Charles, LA
A vasectomy is a simple micro-surgical procedure that involves blocking the tubes (vas deferens) that sperm uses to flow into the semen. This results in making a man permanently sterile. It is a procedure that should be considered thoughtfully since it does eliminate a man’s potential for reproduction.
A reversal vasectomy, also known as vavovasostomy, is generally considered when there has been the loss of a child, a remarriage, and a change in financial conditions or in certain situations, to treat testicular pain.
It is a micro-surgical procedure that is complicated and doesn’t always restore fertility. Like a vasectomy, it is a procedure that should be thoroughly considered before having it done. Vasectomy reversal is usually an outpatient procedure (without an overnight stay in the hospital). Spinal or general anesthesia is commonly used to ensure that you stay completely still during the surgery.
Vasectomy reversals can be attempted even if a long time has passed since the original vasectomy was performed. However, only about one half of the procedures are successful. A discussion with your doctor is must to make sure you are a good candidate for the procedure.
After both procedures, you may need plenty of:
- Pain medication
- Antibiotics to prevent infection
