My DH just had one the end of April. (He volunteered!) Anyway, it cost far less than you having anything done, the recovery time is minimal compared to what you would need, all in all a better choice.
If he doesn't mind taking care of the kids, house, and cooking for at least a week if you have it done, tell him you'll do it. Otherwise, he can have it done and spend a relaxing weekend recouperating! lol! Just make sure that if he does get it done, he goes back and gets checked!
