Make sure and do the therapy. Surgery is wasted if the therapy is not done. I had the same surgery and very glad I did. Good luck on your healing.

Self Pity. I never saw a wild thing feel sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself. D. H. Lawrence
