Correct. There’s a huge difference between occasional pain during some exertion or random occasions, and debilitating pain. I actually asked about this when I was at the Shouldice Hospital, and was told 1% for chronic pain, and some of those are debilitating, but I wasn’t told what percentage was debilitating. I don’t think they really know the answer. They are doing a multi-year study of this, but I think many patients don’t bother participating because of the burden of filling out all those extensive forms. They should have made it much less burdensome – don’t let the perfect get in the way of the good enough. I asked a few patients, and none of them were participating.
