surgery Thursday, starting to freak out

so my decompression surgery is scheduled for Thursday, and Im starting to freak out. I am worried about the recovery that i am going to feel worse. I am worried about being put out and an 8 hour brain surgery. I haven't let myself think about it because i didn't want to, but my husband and i are leaving tomorrow night for ny pre-op is Wednesday and its becoming very real. Does any one have any advise for how they got through this

  Hi wish u would have told us via the surgery list,....I had no idea u scheduled surgery.....

Well if u were not a mess I would be worried about u,...it is scary, but u have to have confidence in ur Drs....I know I was scared too and wanted to stop it just as I got to the OR, but the anesthesiologist was so nice and helped calm me...and I was so grateful for the convo with him....

Just remember all u have been thru to get a DX and teh more positive u r the better results u will have....u can not go in with negative thoughts.,

Good luck....
