I have been in increased pain (big time) over the last several weeks. You would think I would be looking forward to this, after reading every thing here. My preop appointment is in three days, which means the surgery cannot be far off. And now, I am getting scared. I can't even put my finger on exactly why. Perhaps it's the fact I have to go to the hospital alone. Maybe the recovery. I don't know exactly what it is. Just general anxiety. I really feel like a fool posting this here when you all have shown it is a positive thing, but I just needed to express my feelings.
