Hang in there, Emily. I actually cancelled my surgery the day before it was scheduled to be performed. I had cancer concerns, and dh agreed with me that if I chose not to have it, he'd support my decision to search for alternative cures. As it turned out, all my tissue was benign! But I am glad not to be living with the uncertainty about whether I'd chosen the right course. If you are scheduled for surgery, there must be some reason why you are scheduled. If you don't feel clear about the reasons, you should talk with your dr some more. But many of the sisters here have suffered many difficulties all their lives, and afterwards, many sound grateful to be out of pain. I don't know why your surgery was scheduled, but know that we all go through terrible phases of doubt and distrust. Do what you can to prepare your home for yourself. I cooked like crazy, partly because cooking brings me comfort and partly because I wanted all my favorite comfort foods ready for when I got home. Best wishes to you as you face these next days.

Emily, if you are good and prepared you will be fine. I was not scared of the surgery. I was ready to have it done but right before they took me in I was nervous about not waking up. The anesthesiologist assured me she had done this a thousand times and I would be fine. And in the end here I am.
Good luck. You will be in my thoughts.

Hang in there. I can tell you that the night before I was VERY close to calling it all off but I went thru with it and despite being sore and gaseous, i'm glad I did it.

I'm freaking out too because my husband has a very, very bad back from a car accident... and he'll end up having surgery too... and I can;t get a job making enough money to support us while he's out of work... and 10,000 other things are going on....

the stress and pressure are too much for me honestly...

Hang in there- a week before my surgery I was also an emotional mess, but then the day before, a calm came over me. Try to trust us when we tell you the worst part is the waiting, and I had a TAH with a vertical incision. I had virtually no pain, just mild discomfort.

Just rty to relax and maybe try some meditation before going to sleep. Repeat over and over- "I will be fine, I can do this..."

Good luck!

Your dh is right, everything will be OK. Breath. I tried to keep busy before mine so I would not be able to think to much. I know its scary.

I am sorry about your husbands back. My dh had back surgery about 8 years ago, he had herniated disks. I know its probably not the same as your dh's but he did say it was the best thing he ever did he had let the pain get so bad that his legs were numb before he went in. I know you are worried about him but you have to be healthy to take care of him so take care of you first.

yea my hubby's legs go numb... he has constant hip pain.... 4 bulging disks... 3 in lower back one in neck... but he's working and toughing it out so we can have money to support ourselves... I don't know why I can't seem to tough it like him.. I know I'm driving him nuts... and he's had about all he can stand of me lately...
