I had a torn meniscus in my right knee along with a meniscal cyst. I had surgery on Nov. 4 this year and had about 60 % removed because, it was a large tear completely through my meniscus. I was pretty nervous going into surgery too. I never had any surgery and only had been in the hospital in 95 for the birth of my daughter !! I learned alot on this board prior to surgery but, nothing can help with the nervousness. I will tell you that once I was back in the hospital area before surgery I felt much better due to the nurses making me calm plus they put heated blankets on me that felt oh so good
Try to focus on how gret it will be when you recover and if you are having pain now how it will feel not to have pain. I only have pain now when I am overdoing it and pushing myself. I do have a torn ACL he found during the scope so, I am not sure how my knee will be feeling as time wears on but, back to surgery .. once they take you back to the operating room it goes so quick especially if you will be put to sleep the nurses and anesthesiologist work really quick and the next thing you know you are in recovery waking up !! You will be fine and all will go well
Remember after surgery rest, ice, and elevate and by next week you will be feeling alot better.
Good Luck .. Michelle
