To all those out there looking at the posibility of a reversal. I had one after a vasectomy 5 years previous, and my wife fell pregnant with in 6 months. This was done by a surgeon in QLD. Dr Chris Lekich. Even though this proceedure is costly ($10 000 for me before medicare), it may not work for everyone. However, the same could be said for IVF. In regards to recovery, a few stitches had to heal, and a little brusing (small price to pay given what the women go through later)
