Went in for a procedure but was given no explanation about recovery time, no pre- or post-surgery care, the procedure was excruciating,he got blood on my clothe, and I was in severe pain afterwards. In fact, I am worse now (condition and pain) than before. He did not explain the pain associated with this surgery, and he made it seem like I'd be back exercising in a few days. I read later that the recovery time is 2-3 weeks and full anesthesia is used. He used a local. Brutal.
