    Just had the Big V this morning. Laying in recovery. So far so good.

    So two weeks on, I have to say it was a bit of a non-event. I've had no pain/swelling whatsoever. For the first few days it was a bit tender. I wore a lot of support, walked a bit like a cowboy who'd just got off a horse for a few days but that's it.

    Returned to training this week, running, jumping exercises etc continued to wear plenty of support. Only the stitches causing a mild bit of grief but nothing really.

    So guys, if you are considering getting it done, do it. We've all probably experienced much more discomfort and pain on the rugby field... and it's nothing compared to child birth

    The op was never the issue.

    It's when the ferret realises that the main fuel line to the V8 has been cut.

    You need to revisit the schematics on your mixed ferrett / engine metaphor.

    The fuel like is fine, but now it ensures the driver doesn't have an accident.

    You still have to wear "L" plates for the first 15 outings.

    Fond memories of a former colleague, who, after four kids, decided it was time to nip things in the bud. He resaddled the pony a bit too early and nine months later was welcoming his fifth child.

    If you imagine it's diesel, the experience may not be as frenetic, but think of the mileage.

    In reality more like a second hand 2 stroke lawn mower. Very hard to start, runs rough when it does.

    Sorry Ptah, but nothing is quite the same now.

    No, re-saddled the pony, not did the doggie! ;) Line crossed?

    May be that's all I ever had so I haven't noticed yet :)

    It's in the National Interest,

    Meanwhile he still thinks he got it.

    Ok so the kids are 7 & almost 5, I'm 40 next year, my missus and the pill don't go together will & I hate frangers (the wife is onboard too).

    I've had a chat with my GP & he's happy to do the op (we last has a chat when the younger of the kids was 18m and he said wait).

    I've heard the horror stories on GP jobs though..

    I've heard people suggest a urologist over GP - sans re-reading the whole thread can anyone recommend a good urologist in Brisbane? Also will I need a referral from my GP or can I book in a visit?

    I'm biased. See a Urologist. Plenty of good ones in Brisbane.

    I saw the urologist, I wanted a specialist playing with my junk.

    I don't let my normal mechanic do auto-electrical work on my car or service the auto so when it comes time (which will probably be soon) I'll be asking a Urologist to take care of the business.
