Hi; I've been looking at the surgery also, and the people I've talked to about it are all glad they did it, because it relieves a lot of their problems and pain. Some still take meds, but a much smaller dose.
I haven't decided either, but I've felt so bad the last couple days I'd do it tomorrow if it would make this go away! On other days, I'm in no rush.
The surgery is done (most of the time) by laparscopy, which is so much easier to get through than a regular incision. I've had five surgeries that way, so I can speak with experience.
Just make sure you end up with a surgeon that has a lot of experience with this procedure.
