Sweating, Shaking, Fusion in 2 weeks. Please help!

Hello everyone
Im having fusion of L5-S1 on August 28th. Im terrified of the pain and recovery. I've already had a laminectomy and dissectomy for this disc. I currently smoke for at least 12 more days anyways. Scared about quitting, this is my first attempt. I'm very active, or I was before this all happened. Running, Dancing, Weight Training, Hot Yoga. Will I ever be able to do these things again? How long till the pain goes away? What if the screws come out?
