My twin brother did.

He was out of the hospital the following day and back to work within a week.

No biggie for him at all.

Good luck!

My dad had his out, he was good in a few days. My sister had hers out, and she was good in a few days too. My best friend had hers out and only took the next day off of work.

I'm probably going to have to have mine out....ugh. I've never had surgery :)

not bad

a breeze compared to a c section. if you've never had surgery before it'll probably be more uncomfortable because you won't be used to it

Not too bad. I only used one of the pain pills they gave me and I think it was about 2 weeks. It was supposed to be a one day thing but i had to stay overnight. When they were taking it out some of the stones came out so they had to go down my throat and grab them with a clamp thing.

Mine was same day surgery and other than some tenderness and having to figure out what foods didn't agree with me anymore, it was not bad. Honestly, the stitches from my first kid hurt more.

I had mine out and went home later the same day just a couple tiny incisions that they just taped shut. I was back doing everything in about a week. Good luck with it.

Yes, I just had it taken out a few weeks ago. I had a fairly rough recovery, but it was a rough surgery, with a post op infection. I'm also pregnant, so I wasn't feeling good anyway. Usually, it's a fairly quick and painless recovery.

Surgery sucked, recovery was horrible, took forever to get well, then I ended up with a narcotics addiction.

My surgeon has since "quit" her job.
