Re: I'm having major surgery on Monday and scared....
What a bummer, the surgery. I'm sorry you're got to go through this, on top of everything else.
How long a recovery period will it be?
Could you possibly get some extra support for the SH now? It'd seem your body needs all the wellness it can get.
Let us know how it's going, keep in touch. I will be thinking of you.
I believe that post-surgery, with the effects of the anaesthesia and trauma to the body, many get very depressed and disoriented for even a month or so afterward. That will pass, though, so stick with it. I'm sure your p/doc will work with you on this -- do youhave to have pain-killers after the surgery, too? As you know, they depress, too....
You have the support of us here, so please do check in when you're able to.
My sympathy and wishes for a speedy recovery and not too rough a one.
