Encouragement needed

This is my first surgery and I am trying to resist panicking over every little thing. I was thinking I was calm but started the magnesium citrate - half of it 7 hours ago, the other half three hours ago, and not even remotely feeling like anything is happening, except for the same gurgling I've had for a couple of months.

The bottle says do not take more than that dose during a 24 hour period, and I need to start focusing on being at the hospital in 10 hours...

I know I'd love to find a way to not have to have surgery, so I'm thinking this is psychological. Otherwise I am going to have to panic for another reason: bottle says if it doesn't work at all, it could indicate "a serious medical condition"... you mean, besides the stuff that is already happening?

(Note - I have 'squamous' tissue, endometriosis, polyps, fibroids, chronic cervicitis... oh, and a gallstone.....)

Any encouragement would be appreciated, thanks!!!!!
