The operation was a success this morning. Surgery took about an hour, and the right side was worse than the left.
I arrived at 8am and I walked out under my own power at 12:30pm. I am still shaking off the post-anesthesia hang over and have been icing every 30min or so. Unfortunately, I have a thick layer of bandages so I believe the ice is minimally effective. I do have ace bandages on when I am not icing to minimize swelling.
The post-surgery supplement protocol cost me a pretty penny, but I am sticking with it for the next 5 days and I am hoping that it will hasten my recovery time.
