What fantastic news. Wishing you well and a speedy recovery. Was it one leg 0r Two?. Take care Ginsing
One leg right now. Will do the other in about 9 months to a year. It isn't as big as the one they just did.
I went from Chicago to Dr. Granzow last month. I liked them and all but logistics and insurance have my skeptical. Im seeing Dr. Chen in Iowa next Monday. I am a candidate for the SAPL then the VLNT. I cant wait to discuss.
Please let me know how you are doing. My surgery went well. I will be doing my other leg soon.
Also what insurance do you have?
I am going to have him perform SAPL on my leg Sept. 24. He will also have to remove skin and suture my whole leg.
How long was your recovery, and did you have to stay in the hospital at all?
I will be having the SAPL surgery on Sept. 27
Did you have to stay in the hospital at all?
How long was the recovery?
Did you have any insurance problems?
Daveman I paid for surgery out of pocket. Was surprised when my secondary paid me back about a third of the amount a year later. I did not have any skin removal and for most part skin has receded back to normal except right at top of inside thigh. But not so much that it bothers me. I stayed in hospital for 3 days. Took me a month to the day to be able to get garments on by myself and then very gingerly. It has been a year and a half now and I am doing very well. My leg is still healing some on inside which I was told could take a year or 2. But overall no big deal. I am having my right leg done end of October. Slightly modified surgery but still SAPL. Good luck to you. Keep us all posted on your recovery.
