When I met with the ENT doctor he told me that I would be out of work for 3 weeks and that I would have to have someone with me 24/7 for the first 10 days.... what did your doctors tell you? How long were you out of work? I'm not sure if I can take 3 weeks off of work for this to be done. I thought recovery time was 7-10 days.... help!!!I'm 21 by the way if that makes a difference.
