horrid thoughts post op...

I am new here and would love to hear that I'm not the only one having horrid thoughts prior to surgery. I hadn't even had my date set and was already bawling at all the "what if's".... It's set now and I know I will continue to think about all the bad stuff. How do you not, ya know?

What if I don't wake up type thing? What will happen to my kids type thing..you know..THOSE lovely things...UGH!

Thanks in advance for replying! KimAZ

No Kim, your so not the only one! I'm scheduled for a total hysterectomy (the 19th), everything except cervix out and I'm pretty darn scared. I was doing great till today, now I'm very nervous and withdrawn from everyone. I think it'll be great not to have the constant pain, but then the "what if's" creep in. I'm 38, have no kids, no special guy, thank God I have two great parents who will be my caretakers while I'm off. My emotions are all over the place, mostly me going "I can't do this". My doctor has been patient answering all my questions, he gets a little upset when I say something like "What if I have cancer or what if you find something". His reply is always that he is good at what he does, but only God knows those answers right now, and for me to have faith and trust in God. And to trust him as my doc, because he'll do everything possible. My doc has the right thought there and he calms me down when I talk to him. So like you, guess we have to keep positive thoughts and hang in there till the day comes. Take Care, I'll be thinking of you.
