I am afraid of the pain , as well as the idea it might not improve my situation a lot .
Before the surgery, tell your doctor that you want adequate pain control post op. And don't be afraid to take your medicine. You will receive only a short term prescription, so no need to worry about dependence or anything like that. Many patients are afraid to take their pain medication because they have heard so much on the news about addiction, but as long as your doctor is responsible and orders only the necessary refills (if any), most people do just fine with their meds, and wean off of them earlier than the prescription calls for.
Secondly, I've only known a few women who've had this surgery, but all of them were thrilled with their results. Small sample, I know, but maybe a little helpful?
