I road four days post-vasectomy and paid for it! I was up all night in pain.

I was able to ride comfortabley about ten days post-big-V. Not to get too technical ('cause I can't) but the snipped vas deferens form calcifications (right term?) where snipped. It felt like two little peas in my "pod" for about a month post-V. That's what really hurt for a while. Don't push it, the ride ain't worth the pain IMHO. Paul

No, actually I'm just getting your attention. Two friends and I had vasectomies the same month (not a group deal; it just worked out that way). I waited to ride until I felt pretty much normal. It's been awhile, but I think it was eight days or so. Then I started with short rides and had no problem. Both of them pushed it--one was on the bike in three days--and both had longer, more painful recoveries than I did. Anecdotal evidence, but it's good enough for me.
