The surgery was under two hours. I got out of surgery around 8pm. They got me up and walking in the morning and I was out of the hospital by early afternoon. That was on Friday and I was able to fly back home from Los Angeles on Monday. I had to take pain pills for about seven days after the surgery. The hardest part was getting in and out of bed, the walking was easy. After about 10 days I had very minimal problems and the physical therapy started about two weeks after surgery. More questions??
