    I have never been a candidate for surgery, so can't speak to that.
    But wanted to bring to your attention a couple posts that may be helpful to you.
    One is...Post op Must Haves...and ...Recovery the Most Important Phase.
    You can find by using search, upper right on page.

    There is also a ..Surgery Buddies....for each month. That kind of encouragement may be helpful, also.
