|All the kitties in our family, male and female, bounced back immediately from being neutered/spayed. By the time the anesthetic wore off, they were back to their normal behavior--which can be kind of frustrating with young kitties when you're trying to get them to take it easy and they insist on running, jumping, climbing and playing like always.
Ben had a testicle which hadn't descended. When he was neutered, he had to have one incision in his scrotum and another in his belly. Within a day, though, he was back to his usual crazy self like nothing had happened.
I guess our family's been lucky, but none of our cats had complications or had to wear an e-collar. Of course there's always a chance that things won't go perfectly, but I think the chance is extremely small.
I'm glad you're looking into getting him neutered now--it's better to get it taken care of before he develops hormone-driven behaviors. If you're worried about cost, check into low cost clinics in your area. Some humane societies, shelters and rescues offer low cost services or can refer you to vets who do.
