Reply To: Had my surgery done finally – Shouldice
I do want to keep record of my recovery in some form and share it in case it helps others. Not sure how much help it is, though, because this aspect seems to vary a lot from person to person. I need to figure out how best to do this. I’ll post here since I feel loyalty to this forum after interacting with a few members here like yourself over the last year, but there isn’t much activity here for some reason, and it feels like there aren’t many readers. The reason for having so little action on this site is a mystery to me actually.
Yes, they do have the leeway now to modify the procedure, at least in terms of deciding whether to cut the cremaster entirely, and whether to use steel or prolene sutures. Not sure about other aspects of the procedure – I didn’t see any indication that they deviate in additional ways.
