I had my surgery on May 17, 2011. I had to be there at 600 am and they took good care of me. I was taken into the surgery room and I got to speak to my surgeon before I was put to sleep. The surgery took about 2.5 hours. I had a great stay in the hospital and they took great care of me. I was in a lot pain after surgery but I took vacation time and had a week to rest. I don't like taking pain medication but I thank my surgeon for prescribing to me because I couldn't have done it without the medication. To date, I'm doing great in my journey and this site is a great support system.
