Haven't had surgery yet.
In the study I mentioned to Patti, only 1 out of 642 had nerve involvement. Not wonderful if one happens to be that one, but it seems like reasonable odds. (?)
The study also said a little weight-bearing activity helped to heal from the Endoscopic surgery.
There are so many choices and DR opinions, its hard to decide.
Regardless, its my own descision that if I do this, I'll have local anethsesia. I think there are too many complications from general.
Good luck, let us know how you're doing.
