    Unhappy Tese / pesa procedure under local

    Hi Guys

    I am booked in for a Tese / Pesa procedure on the 28th of Feb and i am scared, did any one of you go through this via Local anesthesia, the Doc states that i will be smiling , hes just going to extract sperm and a few tissuse samples .....please help do i go under local or complete knockout ....the costs vary
    14k for local
    17k for complete knockout + aneshethic fees 2500-3000 = 20k

    Hi Rocky,

    My hubby had two Tese/Pesa done, both with jsut local..he didnt feel anything during the extraction...but was a bit uncomfortable the next day. Had a nother friend that went for the same procedure, he was perfect the next day? Good luck!

    Ours was some time back...+-3years ago, not 100% sure of amount but think it was about R7500 (back then)?? The procedure takes about 20/30min or so, for me it felt like hours watching them (they allowed me in the first time, but not second time) looking for our precious swimmers....for hubby on the other hand he found one spot on the seiling to focus on, and didnt even know when they were done? You will be fine, they are so professional and they do these procedures all the time....

    Hi Rocky, welcome! Glad the tese went well and you haven't had toooo much pain. I have no personal experience of tese success but RichardsL has the cutest little boy from a tese icsi, so it does work. Good luck and please keep us posted.

    Hi Roky,
    sorry, I somehow missed your original post...
    Firstly, welcome to the forum!! Not many guys here as you've no doubt figured out.
    Congrats on the TESE results - so glad you didn't go through the discomfort for nothing.
    I don't envy you at all - I've been on injections 4 days a week since November 2009, and think I prefer that to the thought of a single TESE!!!
    So hats off to you for going through with the procedure and fantastic that they found live sperm!
    Keep us posted on your next steps...and welcome again.
