Like others have said, its normal to be afraid. I had surgery 10 days ago on July 20th and I was scared to death. However, I was even more scared of not doing anything about my health and lifestyle. Although everyone is different, my experience so far has been nothing but a positive one. I have more energy than I've had in 10-12 yrs and I could walk 3 miles daily within 3 days post op. I feel "brand new". LOL!
This may sound kind of crazy but I look at weight loss as a very positive side effect if you will of my lifestyle changes. From here on out m,y concentration is mainly on healthy eating and daily exercise and the rest (excess weight) will take care of itself.
Good luck to you and best wishes.
