as you know, you're perfectly normal. As one friend told me..."you've got some rough paddling ahead of you, but you will be fine. This will ultimately be nothing more than an inconvenience." And he was right. The pain is not bad, the catheter is a pain but not literally, you don't even feel it. The whole thing is a drug induced fog and you go through it without anxiety. NOTHING is that bad in this whole experience. It is normal to feel anxious, nervous even afraid. you will look back on it as a pain in the butt, but not the worst thing you have ever done.
How long will you be out of work? a standard transmission won't be bad after 3-4 weeks. Actually, might be good exercise. Don't worry about
work. They want you back, but not if you come back too early and have a relapse. They don't give out raises or medals for being a hero anymore...so leave that stuff for superman.
OK...for a laugh...I told my buds about
the whole surgery thing and how everytime I went into an office they wanted me naked, all the women in the operating room had me naked as soon as I was under. i don't know about
you, but where were all these women wanting me naked when I was 19? too little, too late.
