Summer 2017. Had surgical removal of area on upper chest. Required 6 staples to close. Very hard to keep bandaged and covered properly. Surrounding skin too sensitive to suffer adhesives on tapes. More pain than doctors admitted to. MD very chinzy with pain medication as being blamed for opiod epidemic. If you need it, you're not likely to get it. (Same following sinus surgery last year.) Final result satisfactory.

Went as Expected: Agree
Minimal Recovery: Disagree
Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Neutral/NA
