My surgery (ligament repair -- Brostrom) is a week away, and I'm freaking out. I don't dream - ever! And pretty much every night since about a week before even scheduling it, I've dreamt about it. One night, it was a nightmare that woke me up!
I don't know why I'm so scared. I've had a ligament repair before, though different technique I think, not that that's the point...I think it's because I was so young, naive and carefree (16).
Another thing is, I'm going to have to stay at my parent's house for the beginning of my recovery (first 1-2 weeks, until I get my fiberglass cast is what I'm thinking), and while I get along with my parents for the most parts, and my siblings for the most part, the last time I spent an extended period of time with them, it was hell. How do I handle that?
The other thing is, I forgot to ask about getting an On-Q pain management thing. I don't know if they're planning on it, but I would love one!! I had one after my first surgery, and I really think it helped! How do I go about asking for one?
