I think I’m a bit scared. I know next week or so I will be put under and the doctor will work on me…first surgery. Nervous.
Wishing you the best of luck
Good luck!! Many positive and quick recovery thoughts coming your way!
May I ask what you’re going in for?
Surgeries happen all the time. You’ll be great. I understand though. I was nervous for my first surgery.
@SpringRose is quite right. They are very common. My dad has had dozens. He gets worried each time, but he keeps coming out swinging!
@Happy_H oh thank you…I am not knowing what is going to be worked on but the surgeon suggested it is muscular in my abdomen. He ruled out a hernia but it acts exactly like a hernia so I don’t know until monday or tuesday…surgery will be soon after.
I am sorry they don’t know what’s going on. I don’t know anyone who’s had abdominal surgery, but I bet there’s jello involved after!
It sounds like routine surgery. You’ll come through it like a champ.
Its normal to feel nervous about surgery. With that said, try to figure out ways to calm your thoughts or to distract yourself from worrying too much. I know thats easier said than done.
@Moonbeam oh deep down I trust the surgeon…he was as sharp as a tack during our visit. Knew how to pronounce my last name…studied German…just matter of factly and very kind. It will be like my colonoscopy…before I know it I will wake up in recovery I’m sure of it…thanks everyone…
@Happy_H thank you…it will all be known monday or tuesday…will post about it.
Best wishes for you .
@SacredNeigh7 oh thank you…it will be alright…I feel better after reading all the support on this thread…
What surgery do you have coming up?
I think they are going to have to mesh my muscle in my upper left abdomen…that’s what the surgeon said he could probably do.
Surgery is scary as heck. When I had to have surgery, I was terrified each time. Was awake for 3 of them, but not for emergency gall bladder removal. That was scariest because I’d never been completely under.
All I can say is to practice slow breathing and grounding exercises for the time leading up to surgery. It will help you control the fear some on the day of.
Surgeons are highly trained, professional people. You can trust them. You’ll get through this in a snap.
