Golf after a vasectomy??

51 posts in this topic

After three boys I am scheduled for a vasectomy this friday. With my new found obsession with golf and not playing great I was curious if anyone out there had any tips as to when to get back to swinging. I would think putting and light chipping would come pretty soon but maybe im wrong.? If you have had a vasectomy how long did you wait to play a round??

There is a saying...."old golfers never die, they just lose their balls".

(Or you might simply ask your doctor)

You'll be fine within a week.   I went to work the next day and rode my mountain bike within a week.   Some guys take longer to recover though.

Ask your doc but only do what's comfortable and easy. Too much exertion before you're healed completely can cause swelling, extreme pain, and a longer recovery time. Where your jock strap and ice down the beanbag daily until you feel normal.

Suck it up, Cupcake.

Rub some dirt on it and get back to the driving range.

Obviously the posters had not ever had one, 'cause it ain't fun!  Imagine someone hitting you in one testicle and after the cold swear goes away, they hit you in the other one!

You won't want to make a Saturday or Sunday tee time, but you should be good to go by the following weekend.  It's been so long since I had mine but I for sure took it easy the first weekend and pretty sure I was back to playing by the following weekend.

Same here.  You really just need time for the incision to heal.  You will ache a bit the next couple of days.  You will also the brunt of dumb jokes for quite a while.

definitely wear a jock to keep your boys in order for a while.    Boxers would be bad, very bad...

No, not lost, just 'unplayable'. Seriously, just take it easy for a while.

I think we already feel bad, it's just too hard for some of us to be serious about it. Btw, is your name a game from the apple 2 days? 6502 is a processor and I recall a game called Blaylock. You won't be losing anything except lots more kids. ;-)).

I dont see how it could possibly hurt my game but ive been wrong before. As for my username I wish I could say I put that much thought into it but its the same username from aol messenger in high school (last name football number and graduation year) but I do remember looking at some pretty provocative dot matrix images on an apple II though!

      Actually, they mentioned today that it's an environmental requirement imposed by the government; local, state or federal, they weren't sure.
    • Steel vs Graphite generic question
      Spin is OK though? I could be flipping a little but I may need work on Key #3 to get that launch down to where it needs to be... Because I SHOULD be carrying my 7-iron 160-165 with that speed.  Maybe the motor is fine (the shaft), just need to work on in-line impact more...
    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      I'm liking this:   That makes a lot of sense.  Local Retailers may be getting some of the last years models dumped on them when the new clubs start cycling through.  I was thinking about doing the demo days thing to get a taste of what is out there.  The R7 limited and R11 Taylormade Drivers were good to me.  I think a X2 hot/Big Bertha/etc/ect would probably be more forgiving.  Still, I look at the clubs of old... the Cleveland Launcher Comp / Callaway Hawkeye and think: "If I can buy that club for $20... and I can buy newer (used) for $50-$100... hmmm.  Spinning the wheels.  Thanks for the advice though I really appreciate it. If anyone has a Driver / had a Driver they loved from (2009-2014) let me know about it!  What did you like/didn't like?
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      I just found out that my ex-home course, Sunol Valley Golf course, went out of business last month.  I played 2 - 3 times a week for 2 years not too long ago.  The course was done in by shrinking golfers, and 500% increase in water cost in the last 4 years of CA drought.  They could not make money.   Another ex-home course is now doing business as a golf and foot golf (soccer golf) course.  Golfing customers were not enough. Another course nearby (Santa Clara Tennis and Golf Club) is going to turn into a parking lot for a recently built football stadium. It is sad that despite improved economy in Bay Area, CA, golf business is in decline.  They have been in decline since 1990s but most of the courses around here survived 2008-9 recession.  The current drought and the resulting water cost going through the roof appears to be the final nail in the coffin for the weaker courses.   Sad.
    • Injury Question
      I didn't play golf for about 11 weeks due to it being difficult to play with work after day light savings time fell back.  Now, from the sounds of it, I played through the majority of the repair time as I walked 9 holes 4-5 times a week with 1 day of walking 18 for 7-9 weeks after the injury....I know, I'm an idiot. As it stands now I don't really notice it 90% of the time, its just something that pops up on a swing every now and then.  From the sounds of your healing time, I may have caused it to heal improperly leaving me with a hitch....  If I really just need to not do anything and it'll heal over time then I'd gladly do it, kicking and screaming the entire way as I already had a plan in place to push my handicap into the single digits by years end. I don't like the sound of having something happen as "I get older," I'm only 26 damn it .
