New - TAH scheduled for 6/22

Hello, ladies. I'm 41 and was diagnosed with stage Ib1 adenocarcinoma of the cervix on May 11. My TAH is scheduled for this coming Monday. I have so many fears that I don't even know what forum I should start with. Not only am I afraid of the possible complications associated with such a radical operation but I'm afraid they'll find I'm actually worse than stage I. My doctor said that this surgery is both therapeutic and diagnostic. I have no idea how I will cope if more cancer is found.

My husband is supportive but has no idea how to handle my extreme anxiety. I'm taking Valium and meditating but my thoughts are still constantly consumed by cancer.

Any advice, support, and virtual hugs would be appreciated.
