    Greetings from Florida. Just came back from the hospital doing my preoperation check in. I'm having a five hour surgery tomorrow. Hoping to only stay one or two nights. My family is going to stay with me around the clock and shifts so that I am not alone. I am not afraid of the surgery, but today I'm very anxious and concerned about being under Anestesia that long. Last time I had a hard time coming out of it, I have no idea I was in the hospital.

    I'm trying to stay positive, doing prayers and meditation ... Recuperation time will be 6 to 12 weeks .... I'm glad I have somewhere like here to talk about my feelings and get support

    I know how you feel. I use to take an low dose anti-anxiety tablet that would dull my senses for a day. I can not imagine what anesthetic do but here's what I do know,
    1. You will be relaxed
    2. You will be comfortable
    3. You will wonder why you had so much anxiety because you will be alright.
