Many people ask me about my StompahyX revision surgery, which I had in 2008 some 5-years after my gastric bypass weight-loss surgery in 2003. People are particularly interested in my experience on the day of surgery and my experience in the weeks following the surgery - what did I eat and how did I feel?

The main reasons for requesting a vasectomy reversal are remarriage or the death of a child. Vasectomy reversal can also sometimes provide pain relief for some of the small number of men who suffer post-vasectomy pain, but these patients should first be treated with pain management therapies.
