In a weeks time I shall be having my surgery to remove two discs and fit coflex springs.
Like many of us I have had a rough time with back pain. I hope I am not alone in being so scared of my impending surgery. It will be my first operation
I really am trying to stay positive but I keep bursting into tears. I don't know whether I should be focusing on the op, or on the recovery.
I know stress and anxiety are not conducive for good healing but I am struggling to be 'calm'.
I really would value any thoughts or tips. At this rate I am worried I will be too scared for surgery.
