    Something to break the nerves? (For Surgery)

    Well tomorrow is my surgery for my colon (see colonoscopy and surgery recovery threads.) And I've never had a surgery before and I'm nervous as all get out. It doesn't help that I'm having it at 19 which is exceedingly young to have this type of surgery....

    What helps you break the nerves? And I can't have alcohol, I asked that already

    Marijuana. You can't drink anything, but they don't say you can't smoke anything.

    Booze, oh ****.

    You'll be good though, the doctor has probably done hundreds of these, there's a reason he gets paid the big bucks. I'd just try to do anything else to keep your mind off of it, tv, vidya games, books, whatev.

    Re: Something to break the nerves? (For Surgery)

    Find comfort in the fact that you will be in the hands of professionals. You've caught something early that could have had profound impact later on in life. Finally, you're young enough where your healing time should be much quicker and allow you to bounce back.

    Good luck.

    It taught me how to tie a tie, so he should be ok with a colonoscopy.

    Re: Something to break the nerves? (For Surgery)

    Not sure if this is standard procedure, but before they put me under when I got my wisdom teeth out, they gave me oxygen through my nostrils. That cooled my nerves while they were doing questions and stuff.
