Depending on how big it is, be prepared to lay on your side for awhile, and take lots of percocet. I had one removed about a year and a half ago, but it was apparently pretty bad. The part that was cut out ended up being about 2-2/1/2 inches so it was sutured shut. The part that sucks the most are the sutures. When you bend or lay on it they pull and hurt like hell. (Using the bathroom is interesting.... they tell you to take milk of magnesia or something similar to make it easier) I was also instructed to keep the area shaved, so make some good friends quick!
My recovery took about 4 weeks until I could get the sutures removed and go back to work. Even then I still had to go in and have some parts re-sutured.
