I'm having a vasectomy this afternoon, but I'm suffering from backpain and need to know if I can take any pain killers before a local anasthetic?

Thanks in advance

Do not use painkillers or anti-inflammatory medication, with the exception of Panadeine®, 24 hours before your procedure. If you are taking aspirin this must be stopped 1 week before your procedure after consultation with your doctor.

this is what we like in dadsnet. Exact, straight forward question, answered with brevity and accuracy. No hissies involved.

How disappointing - I was going to suggest a warm bath, massage and some deep breathing techniques to help with the pain...

It would have been a fair comment. Two medically supervised clinical interventions should have the same analgesia protocol, innit?

Was busy minding four children so the only option was a very quick to the point answer!!

Best advice DH got for his (not for painkillers) was to wear tight pants with el cheapo sanitary towels,the bulkier the better.
He said the extra support and padding was a godsend.
Hope it went well.
