Hello, resident hypochondriac here again!
I am going in for a tubal ligation this Friday. I am not particalurly worried about the surgery itself. My doc is excellent and I have all the confidence in him. I am more worried about the pre-op stuff. I have to go to the doc tomorrow and have him check my lungs and heart and run a blood test. I am worried that they just might find something out of whack in one of those tests. Then they will refer me to another specialist and I will be subjected to more testing. I am also worried that when the doctor performs the surgery, he is gonna see a tumor or something weird inside me. I know that most of these fears are somewhat irrational and negative. I have been pretty solid but I noticed my anxiety level increase more and more as the day draws near. I just want it to be over with quick and have everything turn out fine. I don't know if posting my fears and concerns here will help but heck it wouldn't hurt.
Thank for reading!
