DH having varicocelectomy tomorrow

My husband is having a varicocelectomy tomorrow.  We trust the hospital and surgeon - no nonsense guy who has performed thousands successfully, so not asking whether to go ahead.  My question is - what can we expect in terms of post-op discomfort/pain?  Also, he may have choice b/w epidural and general.   Thanks!!

I'm not really sure about what to expect after the procedure...but if I was a guy, I think I would go for the general anesthesia ;-) ...but I'm sure he'll make the decision that is best for him. Good luck tomorrow. Hopefully it'll be a success and you'll get your BFP real soon!

I'm sorry, I am not sure what a varicocelectomy is, but I wish you and your husband luck!  Sounds like he is in good hands.  Good luck to you!
