Because the procedure is so successful, routine follow up is not required, but Dr Al-Ausi will assess any cases that require further follow up. For the vast majority, the only thing you will have to do is produce a semen sample at 4 months.
Immediate after care
You will usually have no pain whatsoever immediately after the operation. It's a good idea to wear close fitting underwear the night after the operation. It is not uncommon to have some mild discomfort and swelling above the testicles 2-3 days after the operation, so an ice pack, Paracetamol or Ibuprofen can usually be taken to successfully manage any discomfort.
General after care
It is usually safe for you to start having showers the day after the operation. The small split heals naturally and the best advice is to leave the area alone. Avoid heavy lifting and all sports for one week following the procedure.
Returning to work
Although full rest is advised immediately following the procedure, most patients are able to return to work within a couple of days.
