    Hi serendipity

    I was the same (had my op on Friday) I had never had an operation before either and I also suffer badly from anxiety. I nearly bailed when I was about to be anaesthetised lol but honestly it's not as bad as you think. You will be fine 😊

    It's not worth that level of anxiety, it's so quick and you will be home before you know it!

    Where are you having it done?

      You'll be fine!

      I was scared but just before they put me to sleep they gave me a drug that made me happy as hell. Lol

      I swear I had a stupid grin on my face as I went to sleep.

      They also give pain relief to you while you are still under so it shouldn't be too bad when you wake up.

      Good luck for tomorrow
