Hi and welcome! I am sorry that this is such a hard time for you. It does sound as if you have a lot of things to deal with right now! It is no wonder that you are suffering with anxiety with so much going on. I certainly understand your fear of having sugery. I think everyone is nervous before a procedure, and a great many people are acutely afraid. Doctors are aware of this, and know exactly what to do for the more anxious patients. Be honest with your doctor, and tell him/her exactly what you posted. He/She will be able to best help you with either medication, a therapy referral or both. Once you are feeling stronger, you will be able to reach your goal of corrective sugery. Try to keep your goal in mind, imagine a stong, straight healthy back, and then make that appointmet with your doctor. Good luck and let us know what happens:)
"Courage is not the abscence of fear, it is feeling afraid and doing it anyway!"
