I am having a lot of anxiety about my upcoming surgery. Do you have any advice to help calm my nerves?
It is normal to be nervous. Feel free to discuss your concerns with your doctor, the nurse who calls the day before your surgery and with the surgical team in pre-op. Rest assured that while this may be your first surgery, this is certainly not our first surgery. We are here to support you and decrease your anxiety. As a faith-based organization, we also offer prayer at the patient’s request at any time. It is our role and our goal to provide you with as much comfort as possible and ease your anxiety.
