I had the same kind of procedure done in 2006. You are in and out that same morning. As I recall, I was back to work in about 10 weeks and you just have to take it easy for a while after that.On a separate topic.
I have been dealing with an umbilical hernia. I will be going in for a hernia operation tomorrow morning.
I will be recovering for 3-6 weeks.
Good luck on the procedure and the arbitration. I hope you get back enough to make it right.
