You guys I’ve been in a really bad place this week. They fast track scheduled me a transcatheter surgery for my pcs and I have to stay the night in the hospital. I’m overwhelmed and anxious by all of it. I have terrible hospital trauma and extreme chronic pain (that the surgery is supposed to help) but I’m terrified of the recovery.

      I would say support and communication with your doctor beforehand will be key for comfort and post-op care. Also, I would bring all your meds and go over them with staff beforehand so that they are in the system, scheduled properly, and at proper dosages. It also helps me to have a comfort item from home and an activity to focus my attention away from my anxiety.
