Microdiscectomy tomorrow L4-L5

Hello all

I am having a microdiscectomy tomorrow and am very nervous. I have been in constant pain for 6 weeks now and have had no luck with non surgical treatment. I am terrified this procedure will not work. I am only 23 and want my old life back. I cannot imagine suffering with this leg pain forever. Any pre surgery advise? I've never had surgery before and am scared.

Thank you
