Yes, they also offered to do the less invasive surgery (Laproscopic) on me as well. I opted for the traditional. After doing some research, I found that the laproscopic might be a little less recovery time but it is not as stong as the traditional method. I was in pain for a couple of weeks after surgery but the pain killers did a good job. You really just need rest and to let it heal, I have had no issues since the surgery though.
