Ok, we talk about everything here so here goes this, anyone had surgery to repair them? If so which surgery did you have and how long was recovery and was it worth it? I am the point that I am pretty sure I have no choice as I can't imagine living with the pain much longer. I an a stage IV. Any advice would be wonderful, I am going to dr on Friday (if I can make it that long) and want to know everything I can possibly find out before I go so I know exactly what questions to ask. Thank you in advance for any info.
