Surgery date fast approaching

Hello all,
Well my surgery date is July 23 - and I go tomorrow for my pre-admissions prep-work.
I'm sor scared about the surgery - but I know I can't live like this forever. It just would not be good from me or my family.
I just want to thank everyone for your posts. Glad to see I am not alone. It's nice to have somewhere to turn when I have questions and doubts.
