Is an office consultation with Dr. Billinkoff required before having my vasectomy?
No, not unless it is suggested by Dr. Billinkoff after he reviews your questionnaire. If you have questions about whether a vasectomy is a good choice for you,
you should discuss this with your family doctor.
How soon can I travel after my vasectomy?
Most patients drive home after their vasectomy, even if it is several hours away. Having someone drive you is recommended for those who have had issues in the past with feeling faint after procedures such as blood tests or dental work.
Business travel such as meetings in another city in Canada should be fine after 1 week.
Vacation travel, especially with families should be avoided for about a month after. Although unlikely, you donít want to have a problem while in Mexico or on a ski vacation. Timing is everything!
