... Hi Jenn, I have had no experience with this type of surgery. However I am surprised your doctor tells you not to take any pain med. if you can't sleep.

... Hi Beetroot, You had exactly what Pearl66 had, so she should be able to shed some lights on that for you. That sounds like an Akin issue which I didn't have. I only had bilateral Scarfs.
