Prolonged recovery: You did not mention where , most common is leg , was done to releases the the pressure and prevent damage to nerves and muscles.Most of the times procedure is brief, recovery is not instant even with minimum damage , full recovery takes months, may need additional surgery skin graft rehab etc most will recover some will never regain full function will not be in sports and has to accept out come.
