I am not a review kinda guy but this is different. Surgery is sometimes frightening and more often than not life changing so I felt compelled to share my experience. I went in for surgery less than a week ago to have my Gallbladder removed. It's hard to believe that I was up and visiting with family pain free at the dinner table hours after the procedure. This was easier than a trip to the dentist. Hope this helps settle someone's nerves cuz I definitely didn't know how to feel prior to surgery but he is honestly gifted at his craft. -Ben
