Default Time recommendations between bilateral surgery?

Anyone who did it within a few months to six months of each other? Do you think trying to get it done sooner effected your healing? I thought I would rather take it very easy and get it over with because spending two more years limiting activity sounds worse, but I am now wondering if it would actually complicate the recovery?

I would do the one side and see how it goes for you..I think others have done
3 - 6 months apart if there is a semi urgent reason, others have waited longer.

It all depends on so many things, how severe other side is, if any Ins requirements, vacation time, job or school timing..family .. personal choice..

i was determined to have my second 1 done fast but will most likely wait at least a year - gotta heal and also you see if it actually worked. takes a year to know for sure. do what is best for you. our poor bodies.
