hiphoprex :  are you allowed to take an Ativan or something for anxiety?  Might be worth talking to your doctor about.  Good luck!

hiphoprex :  3 weeks ago I went to the ER for intense pain in my side and it turned out to be gallstones. It was so bad they needed to do surgery immediately. So before I could even wrap my mind around it I was getting dressed into a gown and being wheeled down! I was so nervous but I didn’t even have time to think about it. usual me would have obsessed over it just like you and freaked out and needed to be talked down from a ledge lol. My only real advice is that you have no reason to worry. Of course there are always things that can happen but theyre so minimal. if it was even a risk they wouldn’t put you under, and they have people monitoring you the whole time so if you went under they could pull you out before it got bad. you know that once this is all over you’re going to have a wave of relief that you did it and that you don’t have to think about it anymore. instead of focusing on what’s coming just think about what’s happening after

Ug, I’m in the same boat as you. My surgery is next Tuesday and I havent slept for a week already, and i still have a week to go! I agree with the other poster about maybe seeing if you can take something for the anxiety.

Just try to stay in your rational self that it’s routine and you will be fine. I know, easier said than done! Good luck to you!
