Find out how long it will take you to recover after the surgery. Ask about how much pain you should expect. Perhaps you should take painkillers, or plan on spending a few days in bed after your surgery. Make all the arrangements necessary before, going to surgery if you should expect a long recovery.

Every surgeon has a specialty. You should talk with the surgeon you are considering, to make sure that his specialty is what suits your needs.
