Vasectomy incision

Posted , 3 users are following.

Had my vasectomy 10 days ago.  No problems during procedure.  24 hours after when the doc said i could shower i removed the gauze and had to look.  I noticed no stitches, is that normal?  A 1/4 to 3/8" incision that was open.  Oozing like a normal cut, no puss and no swelling with a normal temp.  I have kept it clean and dry but even now 10 days later it is still open! It doesnt seem to be healing.  Any similar issues?

    You need to go back to your doctor. Same here, open wound for over two weeks. You are likely to need antibiotics. No oozing from my wound but it was slightly red at the incision. One on the antibiotics it closed up.

    Cleared up and healed within two weeks of starting antibiotics. Started to heal quickly

    It sounds like you had the no-scalpel method? How was recovery, how is it all feeling now? 

    I’m booked in 29th Sept.
