Have read the very helpful threads on vacuum devices and injections. I have kind of a poll-type question(s) to ask those who have tried these. When did you start after surgery?
1) If you use/used a device, how soon after surgery did you start using vacuum therapy? (and also, seems like most people's insurance didn't cover, but if it did cover which insurance do you have? Haven't checked on ours yet).
2) If you use/used injections, how soon post-surgery did your doctor authorize the use?
