    Hi. I'm happy to have found this forum. I'm on course to have the LIFT surgery. I currently have a seton and no chronic digestive issues. For those of you who have had LIFT what (if anything) do you think contributed to its success or failure?

    I had LIFT surgery last week. Could those who have also had the LIFT procedure describe your recovery and how you knew it DID or DIDN'T work? Thank you so much!
