Well, this ablation seems to be pretty much as painful as vats. The last one was simple :roll:

Well that pretty much answered my question, as I have no idea how VATS feels.

Michael, basically it feels like someone stabbed you between your ribs. My first RFA was almost pain free and I was up on the ladder painting the house the next day.

Well then stay the hell off the ladder and get some rest my friend. There is such a thing as too much work, and not enough of one, taking care of themselves.
