My girls had it done Lapryscopically so much quicker recovery. Willow was a tad slower with recovery, but I was able to take both home after they had it the same day. By the next morning Ivy was back to normal. Willow, 2 days to feel up to par. But still couldn't resume normal activity, running and playing etc for 1 week. Plus they didn't have the surgery until the afternoon since they had 2 emergencies come it.
