Hi, im shana. I have had to go for a c-section for the delivery of my first child, I'm booked in for just over 2 weeks away. My midwife showed us around the hospital and theatre last week and since then I have been so scared. I'm not worried about operations as I've had a few before but I have had a spinal tap (which is what I'll be getting for this) before and during recovery I got really panicked and felt trapped, I kept trying to pull myself up etc. I'm worried that I'm going to have the same experience in surgery. I know I will be fine for the start but I'm worried about the closing up half as she said it would take 40 odd minutes. I just wanted to ask anyone who has had one does it feel like that long in the moment? Been having awful nightmares since just thinuking about it so would help to heareduce from people already experiencd. Thank you x
