My advice is to remain active and busy as much as possible. The more you ponder on the the surgery the worse it gets. My Surgeon before I went under said you have been through your hardest part on waiting and getting to the or table. Truly it was the hardest part from a mental standpoint. Also helped me was removing caffeine from my diet completely, helped tremendously with anxiety. Good Luck and LIVESTRONG!!
