Ok all.. tomorrow is the big day and I am scared as hell....
Surgery is scheduled for 2:00 pm and I am going to check in at the hospital at about 12:00 noon.

My nerves are shot and I am having a hard time concentrating on anything besides for this surgery.

I could use all the good thoughts and prayers you can all muster for some good karma to be floating my way :)

Thanks in advance guys :)

  • Hey Dina,

    I was scared like a baby. But they look after you so well and the nurses are so kind theres no need to fret.
    Let them do thier thing and focus of the outcome.

    I was scared of waking up after the most but that wasnt that bad. Had no real pain just a bit uncomfortable.

    Now six months on after PLIF L5 S1 Bolts and screws etc, Im as good as new almost!

    Hope all goes to well

  • I'm sure everything will be fine. I'll see you on the flip side. :H
  • Good thoughts are coming your way!
    Positive thinking goes a long way, as I'm sure you know!
    Best of luck with your surgery.
  • and prayers from me to you.. soon it will all be over and you can concentrate on healing and getting on with your life. Take a bath, watch a good show, and eat something you really really want.... You will be back before you know it...
  • >:D< >:D< >:D< >:D< Good Luck! You will be in my thoughts! >:D< >:D< >:D<
