I am having this surgery and would like to get some input from anyone that has had this surgery.  I would like know what to expect with regard to restrictions during recovery.  Lifting, vacumning,, other household duties, etc.

    Do you have any specific questions about the surgery?  Have you discussed what to expect with your surgeon yet?

  • Hi Cheryl1027,

    Did you have your surgery? How is your recovery? I may be having the same op in a few weeks? Please share your experience....
