I know that the surgery is for the better, but not knowing what my life will be like post-surgery scares me to death! (I hate being dependent on others for anything!) I'm so glad the doctor told me about this website, and that there are others here that we can all learn from.
Just wanted to say Bravo to your doctor!!!!
I had to google search and stumbled here by accident..and now,
well, my name is Theresa and I am a hystersisteraholic...

Mine is on the 21st, and I wish I had talked to my primary about getting an anti-anxiety pill during my pre-op visit the other day. But he was being obnoxious anyway, so doubt he'd give it to me. Not sure if I should call my ob/gyn about it, think he'd prescribe one? I'm crying continually, so scared I might never see my 4 children again, especially my baby who is 4 and attached to my leg. I will pray for all of you getting yours soon!

Ask your doctor. ask your doctor, ask your doctor. It cannot hurt to ask. It is very common for women to get an anti anxiety something or other prior to surgery.

I feel you on the "never seeing your kids again" fear...but, trust will be fine. The stress of the upcoming surgery is terrible. The anxiety pre op is causing me brain damage....
Trust your doctor, trust the hospital and trust yourself to be strong enough to pull through this.

If you want to PM me about that particular fear, I would love to swap nightmares with you! Seriously, PM me if you would like to talk.

I had all kinds of fears such as that. I was going to do a "just in case letter" but decided not to. I'm not scared of dying per se because for me to live is Christ and to die is gain, but my kids need their Mom and I want to be around to complete the God has given me which includes the ministry, and to see my grandchildren grow up. I actually had a panic attack last night for the first time in my life. As Monday approaches I am becoming more and more anxious. My calm, cool, and collected self is gone (I hope temporarily). I'm a nervous wreck.

Samila and all
Well, I was calm, cool and collected because I had so many social events to concentrate on (DD's graduation, etc) but now, I am stressed too. I had a panic attack last night and have been fighting another one all day. Wish I had asked for a sedative too. I will pray for all of us, that we would feel calm, peaceful and confident as we enter these last few days/hours prior to our trip to the castle.

I had to take Xanax before bedtime cause I couldn't sleep with all the anxiety. My family has been busy, my brother in law was diagnosised with a malignant brain tumor, my mom had to have surgery and then my surgery. Luckily my doc was able to schedual me a week after my appoitment wiht him. So I didnt have that long to wait. But was freaky cause the Coroner was going up to the same floor as about a bad omen lol

I am scheduled for my hyst on Wed. the 21st. I seem to go between really calm and crying off an on. I will be praying for all of you that are having yours on the 19th and 20th. It is nice to have a place to go where ppl understand what you are talking about. Take care friends.

Hi Artis,
Boy, can I relate! I have to be at the castle in eight hours and sleep is elusive. If you can, see if you can get a sedative for the night before. You can always decide NOT to take it. Wish I had known to ask for one!
Best wishes for a smooth surgery and recovery.
Looking forward to talking to you in the post op forum!
