Many people have questions. We have tried to answer the most common ones here – if you have a vasectomy reversal question that you cannot find the answer for, please do get in touch and we will gladly help
It is with regret that we have had to charge a deposit that is non-refundable at the point of booking. This is not negotiable or refundable and will be for £500 per person.
If you plan to pay by the BMI Payment Plan card, this still means that you will need to find the deposit of £500 in order to make the booking. The cost of the surgery that you can pay for via credit will be £2831 minus £500, leaving £2331 to pay.
Mr Harriss is a fully qualified consultant urological surgeon. This means that he has completed rigorous training in surgery and specialist training in Urology. He is recorded as being a member of the GMC Specialist register. He is entitled to list these qualifications after his name. As a surgeon he has earned the right to be called “Mr”.
Someone who is a “Dr” does not have surgical qualifications.
The law has recently changed. You will need to give your employer a doctor’s ‘fit note’ (previously called a ‘sick note’) if you are off sick for more than 7 days in a row (including non-working days). This can be obtained from your GP.
Self certification starts after 7 days and your employer should have a form for you to complete. More information can be found here.
Live sperm can start to appear from the first time you have intercourse, two weeks after the vasectomy reversal operation. We recommend that no intercourse or indeed, ejaculation takes place during the first two weeks as this can place a strain on the surgical join. Therefore abstinance is highly recommended. However, after this two weeks, we have had a few couples conceive within this first week and have their babies, 9 months later.
There is no evidence to suggest any higher rate of miscarriage after having a vasectomy reversal or having a child with abnormalities. If anything, having a vasectomy reversal means that your chance remains the same. If you were to have IVF, your chance would be higher of having a child with abnormalities and miscarriage.
No, in our experience, they are not weaker. The way they are is possibly how they had always been, except you didn’t know then.
The first two weeks are really important in your recovery. You musn’t do any lifting, any sport or have sex. A really quite restful time. If your job is physical in any way, you will need 2 weeks off work and Mr Harriss can assist you with a sick certificate should you need one.
