I will leave the pros and cons of these units alone for now. I did want to tell you after my surgery, it was the quickest recovery time ever. Because they and installed just under the skin, no muscle involved, the recovery time as least for me, was at the most 10 days.
Its funny, when I woke up from the surgery, of course they give them right straight your IV, so they work quickly. When my daughter was driving me home, I said to her, they must have given me alot because I really feel ok, considering. For the next few days I kept waiting for the pain to come, the awful pain of after surgery. Well I can say thankfully it never did.
I asked by doctor why it didnt hurt to much and how it took no time at all to recover, he explained because they are installed just under the skin so its not like surgery you get where it goes so deep. And I am beginning to repeat myself, I am going back to bed.
But good luck to you, and I hope you dont have a long recovery time or much post op pain. Take care and hope you are feeling well.
