Thank you all for sharing. I wish I had read these remarks BEFORE my surgery.
Yes it is very very very painful.
My surgeon truly forgot to tell me what "there will be some discomfort associated with this!" means.
I had my surgery 8 days ago, and thank god i am now feeling a tad bit better.
Anyhow, my heart is saddened by the horrors you all relate, I can truly say, "I understand'"
After calling my surgeon for the third time concerning the amount of pain I was having, he finally told me to take ibuprofen 1 hour after I took my narcotic medication. That finally gave me pain relief!!!! So i continued that regimen for the next few days.
BM is a demon!!
