Very very good luck to you! Everything is going to be fine. What type of surgery are you having?
I only had five days between deciding to have surgery and the day of the operation, so I got off easy on all of the fear and anticipation the first time around. My second op was scheduled nine weeks in advance and I think I counted down the days (in excitement AND dread) every day.
I also did Remicade before surgery to no avail. Hopefully you will get a little relief with this infusion so you can be comfortable until the procedure :)
