I am having a partial thyroidectomy next week and am absolutely terrified. I'm already having nightmares about it and just very scared about something going wrong. I've only ever had one general anaesthetic before and am also scared about that. Does anyone have any tips in order to decrease my anxiety before the op? I don't want to get myself into a state beforehand but the way I am going at the moment I know I will be! Also, any other tips in general about recovery etc. after the op would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
