You should do fone, Brad.  I had mine fixed nearing 60.  Do this... do a search on "Jannie411".  She is a mamber who wrote some great journals on the procedure, and I think it will be useful for you.  Recovery time varies, but expect a few days out of work, and a few weeks before you can start pushing it again.  Good luck!
