Good luck!  I hope your recovery is super easy!  I was a mess right before mine, and I thought about walking out of the hospital several times.  I don't regret it at all.

You can do this. I think we all are scared going into surgery, anesthesia, the unknown, how much pain will I have. You will do fine. Keep positive thoughts going. I didn't have much pain at all, I was astonished and kept repeating over and over to anyone that would listen about how astonished I was not to have any pain to speak off. Walk early and often in the hospital and sip your liquids when cleared. Don't worry about your intake except for fluids in the first few days. God bless.
