  • I had it done and I was doped up for that day. Next day I was up and moving no pain the next day either.

  • Same as mamaofficer. I was on heavy pain meds the day of the procedure. After that I had some pain meds that I took for the weekend (vicoden cut in half) and then I was done. They just usually like to give ya extra pain meds in case you need them.
