Scared about Carotid Artery Surgery

I've just recently had triple bypass surgery, but now I am facing carotid artery surdery as well. I'm kind of scared to have to go through it all again.
Looking for people who have had this surgery. How long is the hospitalization, Is it painful afterwards, how long to recoup, (drive, etc.?). Have heard you stay awake? Oh no!
Anything else you could tell me would be very much appreciated.
