Never thought I could do it, but Friday I go under the scalpal. Will be shooting blanks after 24 "encounters"..... or 2 weeks (whichever comes 1st). Is it possible to drive yourself to/from the hospital? I only live 3 miles away. They told me to have a ride, but I'd rather drive myself. How long until you are 100%. I'd like to deer hunt next week, which involves riding a quad and climbing a ladder stand. Is everything REALLY the same? I read vasectomies could be linked to prostate cancer. Scary!
