Anyone ever had surgery?
« on: March 05, 2014, 08:31:39 PM »
I have always suffered from severe health anxiety as long as I can remember. Well a couple months ago my doctor found a mass on my ovaries. It is very complex and has more than one side so they don't think its a cyst. I am having surgery in the morning to have it and most likely my left ovary removed. I am TERRIFIED to say the very least. I have fully convinced myself that I am not going to wake up from the general anesthesia and if that doesn't happen that I will definitely wake up during the surgery unable to move. I have actually convinced myself so much that I am going to die during surgery that all I have been doing is crying. I literally feel like I am living the last night of my life right now.

My question is, has anyone gone through surgery and felt this scared and convinced that they wouldn't wake up? I know I cannot be the only one.

Thank you all for reading and in advance for any advice/kind words!

I am hoping your surgery is going well or over.  I have never had surgery other than dental work but I am facing a hysterectomy (due to large fibroids) and I am scared to death.  Like you I am afraid of the anesthesia more than the surgery.

If anyone can give us some insight it would be so helpful.

I hope you come back on and let us know how it went...especially me.

having a cyst removed from your ovaries isn't a complex surgery.

you're going to be fine.

i am right there with you, though. if someone told me i had to have surgery, i would say no. lol
