I am trying to stay calm (for now) but they found a growth on my adrenal gland. It is very possible it is causing the severe nausea I'm suffering as well as the daily panic and "fear". What I'd like to know, is if anyone with Panic disorder has ever had to go through a surgery and if so did they do anything "extra" to help you control it during the process and stay? I am terrified of being put "under", TERRIFIED. I also fear being in the hospital and the what ifs. I had a surgery 15 yrs ago but my panic was not daily like it is now. I did however wake one morning at 3am with a panic attack. It was NOT pleasant. Forty+ yrs ago I had a sinus surgery done and experienced a FULL BLOWN panic attack in the OR prior to being put under. The nurses thought I was "cold" because I was shaking so bad. I did say I was afraid, but back then knowledge of panic disorder was not as well known. If anyone can relate any experiences, I would appreciate it. Thank you.
