Hello I'm due my lap on Tuesday and to be honest I'm getting increasingly panicky and nervous to the point of being on the verge of a panic attack at times if I think about it too much.
I know I have some cysts that are quite large and need removing but I have no idea what else is going on. I'm terrified of what she might find and what that could mean.
I am petrified of the op and going to sleep. I've never had an op in my life so the thought of being put to sleep and having no control over my conciousness is causing me major anxiety. My consultant advised me to explain to the anesthastist how nervous I am but am reluctant for a sedative as will feel even less in control! (Control freak by nature me!)
Have packed my bag tonight with overnight bits just in case. Have plenty of fluids and peppermint tablets to take for after.
Help! I'm in a tizz really.
What he feeling is totally normal even I get nervous and I have had to many ops to count and I still felt nervous about my second lap. My best advice is think on the think on the positive but honestly when u wake up u will just want the nurses to leave u alone and if u have an questions the docs and nurses can answer them before u go down.
Hope u have a speedy recovery
Thank you both and I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets so nervous! It's silly really as anything and everything that could go wrong I'm imagining x
