Vasectomy - 2 Week-postop Visit Instructions

Activity: You may resume normal activity, including more strenuous activities, such as going to the gym and running. Resume activity gradually. You are at the point where you cannot cause damage or harm to anything. If you overdo it, you may notice some swelling or discomfort. If so, back off for a period of time then try again at a slower pace a few days later.

Scrotum: You may notice a small nodule above and behind the testis on each side. This nodule can be about the size of a pea. This is normal and is not a sign of trouble. This spot is the body's reaction to surgery itself. It is called "sperm granuloma". Sometimes this nodular area can be present for 4-6 months. It will resolve eventually with time.

Semen analysis: Continue to use your regular method of birth control until two semen analysis shows no sperm. At your 2 week appointment, you will be given one sterile container to collect a sample 2 to 3 months after surgery.

When it is time to give a semen sample, call the office to confirm there is a physician available to reach your sample. Collect semen by ejaculation into the cup at home. The sample can be kept room temperature. Bring the sample to the office right after collection. A fresh sample is more accurate. The nurse will let you know the results once read by a physician.
