Hi just found this site, hope everything goes well tomorrow, dont rush things when you come out, remember you have had surgery, try to eat healthily and drink lots of fluid.

you are probably already done with the site for a while, but i wanted to wish you luck and to tell you, that if you think you can't handle the pain for hte surgery, or if you get worried about it, just remember, that pain is temporary, the pain from the other is permanent and you will feel better soon!
also know, that after you have your surgery you will find small things that make you happy each day
