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.

Best wishes for later today Irish Girl.
I hope you feel better after the anaesthetic than you did last time.
Also I hope for a speedy and well-supported recovery. x
