Surgery in 2 1/2 hours and I am a nervous wreck 😢



Recommended Posts

I haven’t slept all night.. I am so excited to get this done, but I have never had surgery, and the unknown is worrying me. I’ve cried on and off the past 24 hours. Is this normal?

Yes!!! I have had lots of surgeries/general anaesthetic procedures (so many I have lost count) and I still felt nervous going under this last time for my bypass. You will get through this!! It's hard but totally doable. Just keep reminding yourself why you are doing this, and that the docs wouldn't do it if they didn't think it was in your best health interest!!

Perfectly normal to be nervous, I am always terrified of anaesthesia.

Thimk not long now and you will be a postop patient and on your way to the new you

Super normal :)
The next few weeks as you start to lose you’ll be emotional so expect that too.
You’ll do great!

Getting through surgery and that first month is the hardest part! Soon the weight will be falling off and you'll be like the rest of us raving that it was the best thing youve ever done! Good luck!

It’s normal! I almost started crying in the pre-op waiting area after that hooked me up to the IV!

The first week is rough, but you can do it! Being able to look through the forums here and talk to be people helped immensely. You’re not alone!

Hope all went well! I was a nervous wreck before mine but excited as well. I will be one month post op come this Saturday. First few days are the hardest but nothing you can't handle, then like someone already said, you'll be like the rest of us saying it was the best thing you ever did!
