If you are a Christian, pray a lot and have others pray with you, casting those cares upon the Lord, who cares for you and will help you to bear in His strength whatever the aftermath of surgery may bring.  Focus on His sovereign control of all situations.

  Try to distract yourself from thinking about the surgery a lot with other things that absorb your interest and attention.  

Have a plan in place for who will help you with things you will need and who will take care of things like cooking, laundry, dishes, help you wash your hair, etc. after you come home.  Determine you will patiently wait for healing to take place and make sure a discharge planner outline in writing a plan for pain management.
