They gave me something to calm me down before the procedure so I felt ok but I will still anxious.
When I came out of the operating room and started to wake up, I started hyperventilating and freaking out, my monitor was going beserk! The nurse ran over to me and asked me for ‘slow, deep breaths please’. I found the anxiety post-op much worse than before-hand. I was crying which the nurse attributed to the morphine.
I remember asking the nurse after she took a look at my abscess ‘what does it look like, does it look scary?’, I was in tears, and she was great, she told me what to expect and how it looked. After my 1st seton surgery and discovering the gaping hole I wanted to be a bit informed before I took a look!
