I have a question. Since I was "fixed" many years ago and the seminal vesicles will be removed during surgery, what happens to the vas diferens tubes that are not attached to anything at either end? Are they removed or just left to rot?

My guess that left to rot would be a bad thing. Removal on the other hand would be pretty easy.

I was fixed a while back and that was a question I never though of. I will have to ask.

I had my vasectomy in 1072 and as far as I know, the remainders was left in place. It isn't like they are just dangling around in there unattached on either end. They are embedded in tissue, ligaments, being tied off at each end, they will remain in place forever with no further attention needed to them.

"I had my vasectomy in 1072 "

Ha, ha, James, always thought you were older than you let on, so you were born at the start of the Middle Ages, what
were PC treatments like back then? lol.

Perhaps they buried the patient up to his neck in sand, then the villagers plummeted the poor guy with pomegrantes on his head till he either died or was cured.

A red hot poker up the rectum was the common method of treatment for the 'devil's ills', as it was known back then. That's also where they got the idea of BRT and the DRE centuries later, at the end of the Enlightenment, when things had eased a little. They did use a holly berry paste, gold flake infused pomegranete treatment that was rubbed on the belly and feet. As close to supplemental as could be gotten at the time. smilewinkgrin
