I am due to go into hospital for four days on Thursday for a major operation and I'm scared stiff. I am on 50mg Sertraline and have also been prescribed Diazepam by my doctor to take as needed. I don't want to take the diazepam or make too much of my GAD in case the hospital decide I can't have the op so does anyone have any ideas please on how I can keep my cool while coping with anxiety and a fear of hospitals. I'm trembling like a leaf and eating immodium like smarties and this is just for the pre assessment. It doesn't help that the hospital is quite a way from where I live. Any advice would be appreciated. Thankyou
