I am due to have surgery on the 3rd April and I am very nervous, it is to remove 2 large neuromas in my right foot, I am not worried about the Surgery on the foot as such, but I am petrified about the Anaesthetic, for one I dont want to go to sleep and I asked could it not be done under local or even sedation (had this before) but the surgeon said 'No it is better if you are not awake' ...I had my ears pinned back and gromits done when I was about 9-10yrs old and that is the only major surgery I have had apart from teeth problems which I had sedation for...
The problem is I am a bag of nerves at this type of thing anyway, I think its a control thing
but I have so many problems now with my Jaw, my back, my shoulders I think my fear and anxiety levels have increased over the years, lets say I am not as cool as I used to be
Being 28 I should be a little more cooler I know, but I have heard horror stories, people dying, ... I am even thinking of cancelling it... please tell me someone out there is/was the same ?
Help!!!! Thanks in advance
