Re: Ankle Surgery

I have to be at the hospital at 9:45 for surgery at 12:15. Can I get nervous now?

Don't be nervous. You will be fine.

Re: Ankle Surgery

At that price you can never have too many . Do they have a color that you don't have now?

Do you get nervous prior to surgery?

Re: Ankle Surgery

The morning of my sugery, I was very calm and lots of folks posted the same experience. Once you are at the hospital, the pre-op routines will keep you distracted. Try to get some sleep tonight, and let us know how it goes when you are up to it. You will be on your way to a new foot, yea!! Best wishes!!!

Re: Ankle Surgery

I am usually up between 5:30 and 6:30 so I would normally be up in time plus my nervousness will wake me early.

Re: Ankle Surgery

I'll be thinking of you tomorrow (today since it's 1:45am). Don't stress too much! You're in good hands, it'll be over before you know it. Good luck!!!
