3 days to go and I am sooooo nervous
« on: July 28, 2006, 05:01:28 PM »
Im in for scope monday night and what ever needs doing when hes in there!
i am getting so nervous now, i am having spinal and sedation, but am really scared im going to feel something or see something, Im not having a general as I would prefere not to, asI am way overweight and by not having one it reduces the risk.

I am also scared I will have a panic attac in theatre, is this why they will give me the sedation???

when will i get sedation before i go in during or what??

cant believe im in such a state, he said the op takes 30 minutes, how long has everyone elses took??

would really appreciate some answers to my questions!!!
i know im normal. but the old butterflies are going in the belly!!!

I just had a scope and had a meniscus cleaned up.  I wish I would have had a spinal.  I was so sick from the general, that I could not leave the hospital.  I also can not take pain meds so it did not make the recovery very fun either.  But if you can take pain med's take them when they say to and it is not so bad.  I had to use crutches for a few days.  I start phsical therapy next week.

Good luck-it is normal to be nervous but I am sure you will do great.
