Surgery tomorrow

GregP Member Posts: 22

so the time has finally come...tomorrow is my turn to get this 3.6 cm alien out of my body. I'm not scared, just a bit anxious is all. It's amazing how many scenarios of what is going to happen can run through your mind. You try not to dwell on the bad ones but they seem to be the ones that always pop up. I find that I just have to stay focused on being positive and strong. I just want to say how much you guys have helped me get through this waiting period and I know you will be there for the next step in my journey...thanks...and I wish everyone in here good health

    Those feeling are very common...especially going into a major surgery.  Try to relax and trust the professionals that are taking care of you.  Before you know this will be a thing of the past.  Keep us posted.

    That's a relatively small tumor.

    This should be a cake walk.

    At a cake walk...

    At a cake walk, you have an opportunity to get a cake.  I'm pretty sure in the hospital, it's mainly jello, luke-warm broth, and weak tea -- but at least you don't have to dress up.

    But definitely -- the surgery should be pretty easy going (which is not to say you won't need / want the pain medication afterwards)!

    Prayers sent

    Prayer is the answer to whatever is going on.  I have prayed for you and all well be good.   God is the answer.  Spend time walking and trust Jesus and all will be fine.  You will find peace.   I am a little over 2 weeks out and all is well.
