Well - most of the people are happy with surgery.
A lot depends upon your surgeon. You must go to the best. I have heard that Cleavland Clinic is theeee Best. Pb4 would be able to provide more inputs. She is one of our elite members on this forum, always available to us with her best advice, and encouragement too.
