A whole lot time and a six-inch incision later, I'm home from the surgery. Two percocet later. and the incision still hurts, it's just that I don't care . I am not allowed to lift anything that weighs more than 15 pounds for the next two months. FYI. Quitting smoking is still going well. In fact, I think the painkillers are going to make that a non-issue for a while. Thanks again, Allen Carr.
