Question Has anyone had a carotid endarterectomy?

Hi, I'm a 64 year old female with stenosis of 50-69% in my right carotid artery and will probably be having a carotid endarterectomy. Has anyone had this surgery and if so could you share your experience? I am extremely worried about the possibility. I have an appointment with a cardiologist next week. The stenosis was found in a carotid ultrasound. I having not been feeling well for some time with dizziness and blood pressure spikes.

Thanks in advance for any responses.
