Quote:I realize what you are advising is true, however it is much easier to say than to do the 'relaxing' part. I worry about the diabetes even though I am well controlled. I also have fear of the anesthesia which doesn't seem to bother anyone but me. I like to remember my late father's advise which was "this too shall pass."
Oh, before my Septoplasty, I was scared to death about being under anesthesia. What helped me was to meet personally with an anesthesia resident two days before my surgery to go over my concerns. She listened very carefully and passed on all the necessary information to the one who handled my surgery. After the meeting, I felt so much better and as an FYI, had a very speedy recovery.
Would meeting with an anesthesiologist before your surgery be helpful and if so, can this be done in your situation?
Lot of luck with everything.
