Question of the day???

Hello Friends, Hope everyone had a Wonderful Mothers Day!!! Now I always try to ask at least 1-2 questions per week to gage and enhance my knowledge. Since my surgery is being moved up due to my Gall Stone...I feel a welling up of fear and a bazillion questions burning a hole in my brain. So help me out here, I know the medical and technical side for the most part but, I want to here from you who did it and got through it! Sooo y question is......Were you afraid or totally calm when it came to your surgery(RNY or Lap)? How and what did you use to get your fears (If Any)resolved? Please let me know, I'm very curious about the coping mechanisms you may have used. Thanks for your input :)


  1. My best advice is to stop reading books on the subject. I was at peace with mine - scheduled about a month out... while waiting I started reading things like WLS for Dummies and stuff and really freaked myself out.

    Come surgery day though - I was completely at peace... I knew it was the right thing for me, and was just ready to start life after surgery.

  2. I was fearful up to the point of picking which surgery to have. Once I made my decision, I was at peace with it and have never looked back. I would do it 100 times over again too!
