    Mrs Hermit definitely would, although I could possibly get away with one of those Ikea pencils.
    Heh :D

    Or an Argos pen?

    Anyone else ever get the feeling they've been smashed in the bollock with a hammer?

    You been doing some DIY again?

    @BigOrkWaaagh had extreme pain (thankfully briefly) when one of them twisted the wrong way. Apparently it can be very serious. I know it flipping hurt and i could hardly move. Toroidal something or other i think it's caused.

    Once got hit by a hockey ball. Had to be stretchered off and checked out by the doctors. I was on so many pain killers for that, i could barely feel my feet.

    Testicular torsion apparently and not toroidal anything or other.

    Of course, that pain that feels like being smashed in the bollock with a hammer was from when I smashed myself in the bollock with a hammer!

    Time to resurrect this thread as my referral is winging its way through the NHS... Please say it isn't too bad???

    One silly worry is having an enforced break from cycling- I commute by bike and ride lots as a hobby, but reading online suggests at least a month break. Quietly hoping the waiting list will drag things out into the autumn when the weather sucks! At least worrying about this is a distraction from the thought of the actual op...

    Itís not that bad if you plan things correctly.

    They say have some well fitting underpants for the next week day and night. They say put a bag of frozen veg there on regular rotation. They say have painkillers for the first couple of days.

    Youíll be thankful you did all the above.

    I didnít mess around and took a week off. Probably overkill, but for the first few days youíre really not going to be doing much except feel very sorry for yourself.

    @Chug666 I've just had mine done, will be a month on Friday. Was a little nervous but was completely painless under a local anesthetic so much so that after 4 days I did a load of work in the garden which my body kindly reminded me to take it easy when the evening rolled around 😁
    I did a couple of 10 mile walks over the weekend and had no side effects from those, think the gardening set me back a little, so my advice is take it easy for a couple of weeks.

    Ugh, this bump reminded me I need to have a look into getting this done. Have 2 kids, have no intention of having another one.

    It's not that bad. I didn't dare get on my bike for about 6 months after, but that was partly because I was getting some entirely unrelated pain (varicocele).

    Had mine done on a Friday, was back to work on the Monday and went for a run on the Tuesday. No pain or swelling, just a bit of discomfort now and then. Don't see what the fuss is about.

    Oh - I had to have mine done under general, though. Local kills the pain but not a weird tugging sensation, which I couldn't cope with. They knocked me out and sorted it from there.

    Mine was fine, took a couple of days off but luckily not too much pain (didn't take any painkillers). Had a bit of swelling and walked around the house like John Wayne but all-in-all not too bad.

    Best thing was getting my partner to help out with getting the samples as she couldn't say no ;)

    Don't be a hero though, if you need painkillers, take them. I would have if I needed them!

    Cheers all- that all sounds fairly reassuring. Just waiting for the date now...

    Booking a week off and making uninterrupted gaming time a pre-requisite of going through with this is starting to look like an appealing idea!

    Just reading the information on the NHS site makes my bollocks ache. I hate the work scalpel.

    This is a timely bump- I'm meant to be calling the surgery today to book mine for sometime in June. Hadn't heard about not cycling for a month, that's a pain (literally?)

    Judging by the number of replies in here it looks like 95% of the forum has had their wings clipped! My condolences.

    Don't be, now we can fly without worry!

    (even if most of the time it's flying solo... ;))

    Yeah that tugging feeling during the op was the worst part for me. Not painful, just really really unpleasant.

    That tugging feeling lasted ages for me after the op. I had to walk out the hospital and find a taxi which probably wasn't the best idea. Left me very bruised and battered for a good while after.

    Booked in for a consultation on Friday. Did ask to just go ahead with it as soon as possible as I know it's the right move but you have to go in to do it as a referral initially, then a consultation. Fortunately he's doing it all in one so won't have to go in twice.

    Talked about the Mrs having the coil but she's not interested, having taken the pill for most of her adult life, I can't blame her to be fair.
