      The first input box when you post a question is for the general subject area of your question, kind of like the subject line of an email, and is limited to 140 characters. The second larger input box below that is for the question itself and any related details and has a limit of 1000 characters.

      Find things that make you comfortable and have them close by (I have a warm soft shawl that goes). Make sure you have someone with you to help you understand what the doctor is saying and help you communicate to the medical teams. Bring funny short stories or a few magazines and take everything day by day. Remember it will get better - take care Tracy

      I'm sorry. Before my last surgery, a lady told me that each of hers was easier than the previous surgery. I didn't think this wasy possible, but it turned out to be true for me as well. I hope you have the same result. I will also need another surgery soon. One thing is sure, the anxiety never seems to get easier, at least for me!
