hi willow
i was so glad to see your post and that you made it thru surguery i cant wait till may 6 th to get my surguery over with so i can go back to work im going crazy at home and had another bad anxiety attack but didnt call 911 this time lol called them 2 times last week and didnt want to wear out my welcome they probably think im nuts but with my symptoms lt arm shoulder and jaw pain and hands going numb i wouldnt know if i was having a heart attack or not because when the panic attack sets in i have pressure in my chest and heart beats a million miles an hour so i get nervous and call 911 because there no one here to help should i pass out i think staying home has made me more aware of just how bad the pain really is and i didnt feel the full brunt of it because i was constantly busy with customers and running the the day to day operations of my department so my days are filled with severve pain and the constant preoccupation with it and the surguery did they give valium before they took you to surguery also how long did it last and how long before you awoke in recovery well lsten i got to cut it short pain is intensifying and got to take my oxy i wish you a speedy recovery and want you to know that i said many prayers for you all day friday
have a painless night
