The general consensus seems to be, "No, you should not drive yourself home from a vasectomy."

Thanks, everyone.

@PostMasterGeneral I have co-workers and friends who have had a vasectomy done and the answer is absolutely not.

@PostMasterGeneral No. You'll be uncomfortable enough to be distracted, and even if they don't give you a general anesthesia at all (but often they give you a light one), the local and the pain meds will make you at least a little sluggish and unfocused even if you "feel ok"

It's not safe to drive after the procedure, for at least several hours, possibly more depending on the pain management strategy in place.

@PostMasterGeneral @c0debabe The Valium made me loopy as hell. The place I had mine insisted that I have somebody to drive me.

@PostMasterGeneral yeah I thought I would be, but my wife said "no you're not doing that."

I walked out fine. Just felt kind of weird, and as John Mulaney would say, "different."

@PostMasterGeneral I wasn't even allowed to drive home by bus on my own. Vasectomy includes light anesthesia which keeps you dizzy for a few hours
