    Hi LanaKay: glad to see another May Marvel. I was beginning to think I was going to be the only one!

    I got my second Jan. 16th. You will probably find this one easier than the first, mainly because you will know what to expect and not be blown away by the initial discomfort. Good luck on your surgery!
