Can you tell me your experience with the surgery if you have had it? I have to go for a scan monday, then see the surgen shortly after that.....I just kind of wanted to know what to expect and is the surgery painful? What about the scar? Thanks for any help

  • Ive trained my hubby. Hes been going the last couple of years. Every year his job gets a little bit more difficult. This year will be a true test for him as I am sending him to Walmart where everyone else will be. I would go but our walmart is right by our house and about 15 minutes away from any other shopping areas and I dont want to waste time getting to the next store. There is a walmart where Ill be but its a busier one. ***l have a better chance getting the things we want at the one by our house. Its all strategy

  • I don't know much about WalMart, but my neighbor had really high blood calcium rates and had to have a small nodule removed from his parathyroid. After his stiches were removed, I don't see anything on his neck. As for pain, he said it was fine. PS. if NSAIDs are not enough, get hydrocodone for a few days.
