Post subject: Feeling terrified!!!
Ok so i have my 'repair work' done on Thursday and i am absolutely terrified! I hate hospitals so much that i had a home birth and seeing as the only times i've had to go there has been when my grandad died and when i had my stiches, i don't exactly have any overwhelming feeling to rush back. They are giving me a general anaesthetic which scares to poo out of me, what happens and what does it feel like?

I've lost half a stone in two weeks cos i've been stressing about it so much (not really a bad thing!!) and i'm not sleeping, i'm so snappy and blubby all the time, i've turned into a right mess!

hey slummy

general isn't bad at all - they get you to count down from 10, and I'm always convinced I'm gonna do it... then get to 9 and that's it. Next thing you know you'll be awake and it'll all be over.

My mom has said when she had general it was just like going to sleep and waking up again. Try to stay as relaxed as possible. xxxx

Thanks guys, i know i'm being silly and thousands of people have them every day.

I've got a cold at the moment and don't they always say about not having a cold when you have an op? Or am i just clutching at straws here Laughing . At least if it does get put back then i might be able to worry off the other stone i'm having trouble shifting Laughing x

Honestly i am such a baby, i was so stressed that i was sick twice in the morning before going to the hospital! I was trying not to cry when they were giving me the anaesthetic and the only way i can not sob is to hold my breath, obviously i soon realised that i wasn't going to inhale the gas like that Rolling Eyes

Have been in so much pain and it's only really now that it doesn't hurt ALL the time! I still can't move around for too long without feeling sore for hours after but my lovely hubby has taken time off to look after me and help out and he has been a star.

Also lost another 1/2 stone so it's not all bad Laughing x
