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.
Easier than you would think to get one. I have had two. One about two years ago and the other when I was really young. Sometimes it can be really small and impossible to tell, if that is the case you just need to go to the doctor and have them look at it or take an MRI. If it is bigger, just press slightly on the area, remove your hand and cough, if the skin pops up with a small lump, most likely you have one.
I don't understand how it is a knock off. I have seen tons of leather jackets that look like that.

Drug crimes are like thought crimes. So somebody...
