Andre, I assume you are referring to vasectomy, where the tubes from the testes will be tied off...?
Sexual performance is not negatively impacted by such a procedure, it is a minor operation requiring local anaesthetic only, and other than mild discomfort and bruising, you should be able to be up and about immediately thereafter.
I'm a little unsure why you wouldn't want you wife to know, I think that secrets in relationship can be harmful and may cause unnecssary difficulty. Surely she will know something has changed when eventually you stop wearing condoms? However, it is your body and you have every right to proceed without her consent.
You will still ejaculate after sterilization, just your ejaculate will not contain semen (the sperm). YOU MUST, HOWEVER, USE CONTRACEPTIVES FOR AT LEAST 6 MONTHS or until you get the 'all clear' from a doctor after several months that your semen contains no sperm.
