Private here too (covered by work healthcare!)
no idea of how much benefit this was over nhs (tho i presume it would not have been deemed essential on nhs!) but in and out same day, no painkillers after op and recovery timeframe as expected.
Some arthritis was expected from the scan but nothing significant found during the op. you are correct, scans can only give a guideline of the problem, but can only know full extent once they open you up.
lots of physio which was hard work and you need to be disciplined to keep it going.
