Successful. Back to running quite quickly. Pain levels ...think I’d been in so much pain pre op that post op I felt such improvement I was oblivious to pain. Stopped pain relief very quickly.

My ex DH had this done. When I picked him up from the hospital he got into the car and yelped "OW!" as it was so painful before. Then he said "oh, that didn't actually hurt!" He just assumed it would grinQuick recovery and so so worth it. He could barely function beforehand.
