Good Morning. I am sorry to hear you are headed to surgery. As you can see our "post op" members are extremely supportive and more then willing to share as much info as possible to help each person make it through surgery with the least possible anxiety.
You may fear surgery but if surgery is the only option presented to you as a chance to increase your quality of life, chances are you'll undergo surgery. Everyone experiences fear and it is very common in your position. Getting past the fear is not always easy but I know you will make it and fear will not hold you back from doing what you need to do.
When you face your fear, most of the time you will discover that it was not really such a big threat after all.
We are all here to support you and help you in any way we can.
Wishing you the best,
