[QUOTE=Bonney Daubenspeck]Pdaddy4u – it is not painful – I had mine put in at a same-day-surgery facility at my local hospital – whole thing takes about 1/2 hour – I had Versad – a conscious sedation – as well as local pain injection -lidocaine? – felt nothing – a small amount of soreness lasted about three days at most – and that was from bruising caused by insertion – pressure during procedure, not pain – I floated in and out of “sleep”. It was used on the 6th, 7th, 8th days post-op and worked wonderfully without pain – I’m glad I did have it put in. Bonney[/QUOTE]
