      Contact your surgeon. He/she can provide you with some short term meds for anxiety.

      I have had chest discomfort from surgery a few times to the point where they were concerned about my heart. I have heartburn issues and it turns out that is a big problem, especially combined with anxiety. Tell the anesthesiologist about this reaction before you go into surgery and they can limit this. Take care, Tracy
