Well I haven't had a free flap, but did have a large skin flap surgery a little over a year ago. It's kind of scary thinking that they are moving that much skin, but it's not too bad. They took the skin flap from my thigh and the donor sight is where it hurt the most. But overall I think it went really well. Everything healed nicely and it's been great to have it done, though it was basically my only option. Personally I'd try embolization first, as it's less invasive/radical. Then if that doesn't work, you can try surgery.
