I am having my surgery tomorrow and I am super scared. I also have stomach problems pretty much nausea and cramps. I ve done all the tests and everyrhing is good, now I am thinking since I have tonsil stones and my tonsils get infected all the time I might be getting nausea from that. I was wondering if any of you felt the same? I have headaches and my nodes in my neck hurt even my eye feels puffy and painful. I can't live like this so they have to go. I am super super super scared after Inread all of your posts. I am not scared of pain I am sared that the pain meds will make my stomach feel worse. Do you guys have any advice??? I am terrified.

    Hi Melissa

    You have nothing to worry about, if they are aware of this then you will be given something to counter act this. Most likely afterwards. If you are having a general anaesthetic, then your surgeon would prefer you to have an empty stomach. But as I said, all will be fine.

      Hi melissa

      The answer to your question is yes you can feel nauseous (feeling sick), also being sick along with headaches, raised temperature and generally feeling unwell. These symptoms should pass after surgery, so much of what you are feeling are due to tonsil stones.

      I have looked up the problems that you are describing and it does look like that the tonsils / tonsil stones are the main cause.

    god hun what can i say , the thing making everything worse is you anixty if you had longer i would say find a relaxation cd and do it twice a day .

    but in this case you havnt time . all i can suggest is take the pain meds your need to and use weleda calming stomach drops for the nausea and cramps .

    you can by the on line .once again you have left it a bit late .

    if its mainly nausea and cramps other things that help this is ginger ,and cloves .

    stand cloves about 3 in hot water and some ginger root as well when cooled sip .

    or you can just try plain old ginger ale .the worse thing pain meds do to me is cause me constapation so have something in for that . and try to calm your self down aniexty makes thing so much worse . 

    i know i am living with the results of constant anixty .it cripples you . smile

      Gosh its morning and I am awake for surgery. Actually I couldn't sleep so I woke up way too early. You are right anxiety is playing with me and mekes me feel this way. I don't know how to control it. I need some xanax.. I drink ginger all the time but since I am getting more and more tonsil stones ot doesn't even help anymore. It makes me more nauseous. I am so scared 😁😁. Thanks for replays I am sure I will need you all for next

      when your thru this ordeal hun .

      why not look at a brain retraining programme i am doing one recommended for recovery from chronic fatigue ,fibro, ME these all carry very high aniexty problems.

      the programmes are designed to rid the prehistoric part of the brain of the constant flight and frieght that its got stuck in . i started mine on the 27 dec and have had some good results.

      iv had a couple of days of because i was shattered but you can do this the whole point is not to push your self to doit  but encourage ,people with aniexty problems normaly to hard on them self which just keeps making there stress worse and making them iller .got to break the cycle

      hope all goes well and i am sure it wont be as bad as you think . 

      but they dont give you ice cream any more hun but toast  ouch eek

      i would be just the same , but i am working on it like i said .

      i think they insist on you having toast afterwards something to do with the healing process. and to clear your throat.

      so glad your home safe and sound , they cant wait to get you out these days can they they used to keep you in after ops even minor ones just to be sure you had a good rest and that you were ok before being sent home.  some ice packs are good to help numb any pain .

      hope its not to bad for you . 

      your like me i hate taking pain meds cause they give problems but will have on stand by .for certain things .

      when your over this try ordering some of those Weleda stomach calming drops i find them great for nausea and upsets .and a relaxation cd for aniexty . i wish you a good night .in all ways hun.eek

      Thanks i will. I am waiting for pain to really kick in. They say usually first day is fine and than it hits it. But at least i am calm and glad its over.. Now deal with the pain.. I havn't taken very much of pain meds kind of saving it for the worst. I was wondering if thats common for the first day??

      dont worry what may happen hun your stressing when you do that 

      when you start thinking or worring about what might happening your releasing chemicals into your blood stream ,which then causes the aniexty 

      you got the pain killers hun thats your comfort blanket . just distract your mind .from thinking about what may happen .do something you enjoyrazz
