New here and very scared

Surgery is definately scary, but the advances made with anesthesia are awesome! Today they have the ability to closely monitor what you get and to give you just what you need. I had eye surgery when I was 10 years old and I remember sleeping for an entire day after I initially woke up. 22 years later and the experience was so much better. Once I woke up, I was up! My family could not believe how alert I was for having just woken up from surgery! As for the initial going under, well I don't know what they gave me, but all I remember is them putting an I.V. in my arm and giving me something through it and I was O-U-T! I woke up about 3 hours later and it also felt like only 5 minutes. Anesthesia used to be more of an art as well as a science. Today it is much more of a science and the doctors can better regulate how much you receive. This means less risk and quicker recovery! I know it's still scary, especially when cancer is involved. I was stage 1b and my chances for survival are wonderful, but nothing can prepare you for going through the diagnosis, even when the stage is as early as yours is. The fear is normal, but your chances of survival seem to be fine. Hang in there! We're all here for you. Keep us posted!

Hi and welcome

I found out that my pap smear was abnormal on the third day of a month long trip to Spain!! Anyway, I ended up having a TVH 5 months ago. The mental part was much worse than the physical! Keep coming here with your concerns. The women here have been a great support system for me.
