I'm 22 and tomorrow will be going into hospital to have a laparoscopy for suspected endometriosis. I know I will be okay and it is a relatively common procedure but I am so nervous, I have never been under anaesthetic before and I have this irrational fear I just won't come round. I also have had Epilepsy since I was 14, although I haven't had a seizure in 5 years and it's well controlled, I'm terrified about going into a seizure coming out of anaesthetic. My surgeon knows this and so did the pre op nurse and they aren't worried because my Epilepsy is controlled but I can't shake this feeling of worry and panic. I have spoken to my family and they have reassured me, my sister had the same procedure so she has helped. My fiance is coming with me on the day so I'm glad for that, couldn't do it without him. My anxiety is going through the roof at the minute, does anyone have any words of wisdom? Or advice? Anything would be so helpful.
Thanks so much
