Well I found the surgery to be quiet painful. It wasn't the worst pain in the world just a dull pain in the bottom of my stomach. The pain you feel just after you have been kicked in the boys. This only lasted while they worked on one side but it was the longest 5 - 8 minutes of my life. When he started working on the other side I felt no pain at all. I also had considerable swelling and was very sore. This lasted about two weeks but I was bruised for about 3. However it was all worth it in the end. I have two lovely boys but I do not want anymore. ***THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AND ALL THE GUYS SEEM TO BE LEAVING THIS OUT*** The first time I was ready to get it on again with the wife it had been about 4 weeks. Things happen and I pull out for the money shot. POW! I shoot a cloud of dust out and smoke up the whole room.
