Pro: my hip is back in place, I can feel when my balder is full, I am able to hold my posture in alignment allowing me to avoid sugary for on a herniated neck and my hernia has been repaired.
Con: I had necrosis and an open wound for 9 weeks, my husband and on packed 2X daily. The deep stitches on my back surfaced after 5 months post-op in painful blister. The blister lasted for 3-4 weeks before coming to the surface. Then myself or a family member had to pull them out (like a fish bone).
Now I have a very large hypertrophic scar across my back that is painful. Also, the scar feels hard an lumpy.
I spent the maximum time out of work on FMLA and still could have used more. The need for sleep and zero energy has taken a toll on myself, my family and my job.
