Recovery has not been an issue for us at all, we went back to work 3 days after the surgery and we are back in normal routine as of this week (2 weeks post op). We have not had an issue with pain after 5-7 days, even during the first week post op when there was some discomfort, it was minimal. The biggest problem we had was with a post op medication, dexamethosone, making our skin break out which was a very small price to pay considering how happy we are with the result of the procedure!
We both definately recommend silkwood medical for anyone looking to under go this procedure. It is definately worth it, and has already made us feel 100% better than what we did prior to the surgery. Dr Nettle and his nurse, Elise, was very helpful and comforting along the whole experience as with the whole staff team at Silkwood medical. All very understanding and welcoming.
