Surgery--Ohhh Goody!

Hello all my fellow troopers; Here's the latest challenge I'm not trying to ignore but I'm trying to not obsess. I have pre-tests on the 17th and then an inpatient (stuck, vulnerable, anesthesia, lack of control, all nice trigers for fear & DP) surgery on the 20th. I will be there really maybe 30-32 hours total, but ohhhh Lord, the trust and control issues are freakin me. I don't know what else to say but that I'm scared and there's not a dam thing to do but go thru with it!

I guess? I'll be very happy when I get home and know it's all over. The hospital is way across town. I've had other ortho and nero surgery inpatient morphiine pump, all that. But it was always at this hospital about 5 minutes from home till this one.

Oh well, just wanted to share. Wouldn't it be something if I got there and got all prepped and all that scary sh*t and was able to calm myself down the whole time? Prayin for a miracle!

You'll be fine! I had minor outpatient surgery two years ago during the height of my anesthesia, just local. But they still make you wait in the prep area with all the other people who are high as a kite due to pre-surgery meds, and with patients who just came out of surgery. Speaking of fighting a panic attack and trying to control your heart rate when they're wheeling you into the operating room fully conscious with the medical staff all dressed like Darth Vader. I wish I had some benzo's, but it only lasted about twenty minutes.
