New and Nervous!

I am scheduled for my first ever surgery wed. 2/13/02 TAH-BSO Exploratory Lap for large ovarian mass. I have been able to keep a certain peace about this with lots of faith and lots of loving family support. It seemed the wait was so long, but now time is flying and I am getting very nervous. For the last 6yrs.I have been treated for congestive heart failure which is believed to have been caused by a virus. I kept having a distended abdomen and have been treated with diuretics. However my belly continued to get larger and larger. Meanwhile my heart has grown stronger. thank Goodness. Now we found this mass thru ultrasound for gallbladder(I told them of my swollen belly) they could see and viewed a little lower and found the mass, then did CT. My cardiologist and gyn surgeon have conferred. I have had no pain no bleeding only bloating swelling and fatigue. I have already gotten encouragement by reading you all's posts. Has anyone had a similar situation? One measurement of this mass is 18cm. Thank you in advance for your thoughts and prayers.
