    Bless ya, I'm preop, but its natural to be scared, but just think of all the positives that will come from it and how many people say it's the best thing they've ever done and they wish they could have done it sooner. I know when my time comes, I'll be scared too, but it's not going to stop me. Xx

    I honestly found the few days before my surgery very hard, I barely slept. This was mainly due to the fact that I’d never had an operation before and put to sleep so I was scared but I also questioned wether I was doing the right thing. Just focus on WHY you made this decision in the first place and what exactly has kept you going for so long. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done and I’m sure you’ll feel the same. Best of Luck and Take Care x

    I'm still pre-op but as others have said, just keep in mind why you're doing this and how long it's taken you to get to this point. The losers bench is in reaching distance x

    Fantastic news, so pleased for you, I think it’s perfectl normal to be a little nervous and I believe a few nerves are healthy too, just remember it’s the first day of the rest of your new and healthy life xxx

    Probably all of us have said am I still sure I want to do this and still in shock that the date as arrived. Have to say I was relaxed the night before and even on the day , I had a 4 hour wait before they did me , so I just read a book, listen to some music and waited. All of the theatre team you meet will be relaxed, calm and professional. They will put you out and the next thing you know you will be in recovery and it has all been done.
    Good luck for tomorrow.
