The purpose

While narcotic medication are commonly used for pain control near the time of surgery, there are significant side effects including constipation, nausea, risk of overdose leading to decreased breathing, and risk of addiction to narcotics. Our goal is to explore alternatives to narcotics for perioperative pain for patients undergoing sperm retrieval surgery. We have designed a prospective randomized clinical trial to evaluate how effective the anti-inflammatory medicine celecoxib(Celebrex©) is for pain control near the time of surgery. Celecoxib is known as a COX-2 inhibitor, a drug that belongs to the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) class. It is used to reduce swelling and to treat pain. Patients will be divided into two groups: the first group receives a celecoxib pill and the second group receives a sugar pill(placebo). Patients and doctors will be unaware of exactly which pills are given. The patient will complete questionnaires for pain level. By comparing the pain levels we can better understand whether celecoxib (Celebrex©) significantly decreases perioperative pain.
