Hi Amelia B.
Have your hubby do some kegels, before the surgery. He should try to stop and start his flow a couple of times as practice and to et used to the idea. Believe me it will never be easier than right now.
Other than that, try to relax and set a side some alone time. That too will never be easier than right now.
Good luck to both of you.
