Post-operative recommendations for Vasovasostomy

  • After the procedure, we apply a bandage to protect the incision. We also recommend that the patient wear a scrotal support for 15 days.
  • You must be accompanied home after a vasectomy reversal and must not drive for 24 hours, until the effect of the anesthetic has completely worn off.
  • Plan to reduce your activities for the 2 or 3 days following the surgery. Avoid major physical exertion, lifting weights or exercising for about 1 week. Any exertion may cause bleeding or swelling of the scrotum.
  • Intermittent application of ice after the procedure will reduce pain and swelling. Pain is usually controlled by Tylenol© (2 x 500 mg tablets every 4 hours for the first 24 hours). You may require a painkiller prescription to use as needed for some days after the surgery.
  • You may shower after 24 hours and take a bath after 1 week.
  • Sutures will disappear after 2 weeks.
  • A vasectomy reversal should not affect your sexual function and you will not notice any change in your sperm.
  • You can resume sexual activity after 2 to 4 week, depending on the healing process and general well-being.
  • Sperm analyses are performed at 3, 6 and 12 months to monitor the success of the procedure.

    Dr. Marois is a urologist who is not a member of the Régie d’Assurance Maladie du Québec (RAMQ). As such, the clinic can not claim the RAMQ for the payment of his services. If you consult Dr Marois, you must pay for the services rendered.

    Cancellation of appointment:

    To ensure the smooth running of the clinic and a minimum of courtesy towards other patients and our staff, we ask you to notify us 48 hours in advance for the cancellation of a consultation, 5 working days in advance for a surgery at the office and 21 working days in advance for a major surgery. If these deadlines are not respected, a cancellation fee of 50% of the service will be charged.

    Change of appointment:

    We understand that events occur, so we ask you to provide us with at least a 24-hour notice for any change in their appointment; we will be happy to accommodate you, the best we can. However, if you fail to inform us within this timeframe or do not show up, we will charge a $ 100 fee.

    Thank you for your understanding.
