When it comes down to something as big as surgery I think we're all a little scared and nervous. Thinking about
it is always worse than the actual event I think. When I was a little kid I remember always getting a penicillin shot every time I went to the doctor. I remember lying in bed one time with a bad cold and waiting to go to the doc's office. The time came and we went and I didn't get a shot and I remember being almost disappointed. Strange but true. The worry is sometimes worse than the event.
I had the NF on August 1 and the worrying I've done has been good and bad. It's helped me in some ways because I've looked around and learned and listened to others who have had the surgery including a couple of close friends in the town where I live and from this forum as well.
Worrying has also been not so good but we are who we are and we recover and progress at our own rate and in our own time. You can't heal as I do and vice versa. Most people do very well and I just bet you do too.
the choking: I really never worried about
that aspect of the surgery and I never choked once.
Good luck -
