So up until now I was fine. Surgery is this Thursday the 14th and im soooooo scared. I dont wanna be in pain. Plus I hate pain meds and the way they make me feel. I also have an anxiety disorder and im freaking myself out. I keep thinking the worst possible senarios. Anyone else having doubts? Someone please tell me its not as bad as people say it is so I can get through this.

It's really not that bad. Just had my GB taken out yesterday am and I'm feeling really good. I was very happy I had my morphine drip for the first 2 days. It helped me sleep. Came home the 3rd AM and didn't really need it anymore. :). Actually the surgeries were the best sleep ever. :P.

... just to give you some hope. I had my sleeve and gallbladder surgery at the same time. First day in the hospital I used the drip a couple of times... 2nd day I used it twice. I went gome that day and havnt used any pain meds since the hospital. No pain.. nothing

I was also sleeved on a Wednesday and by Friday evening was off of pain meds. I'm not going to lie or sugarcoat it you will be sore BUT the more you move around the better you will feel! I was sleeved on Wednesday and out and about on Saturday (still a bit sore though). It'll be worth it though! I was sleeved on feb. 27, started liquids feb. 18 and have lost 37 lbs.

My surgery is tomorrow and I also have an anxiety disorder and am really nervous. I think," what am I doing"? Just got to try and be positive and pray, pray, pray, that everything will go okay.

My surgery is also tomorrow. Saying goodbye to eating as I have known it has been very difficult for me. Not so scared of pain.
