Hi Lilly - Welcome!  I had my surgery this past summer, but prior to that I had not had surgery except for an outpatient procedure in my 20s.  It was a great first experience with a major operation and hospital stay for me.  I felt pretty confident going into my surgery because of the large number of surgeries my doctor had performed.  I sort of went into the whole thing thinking that if I felt too nervous I could always change my mind - I'd always been sort of a scaredy cat when it came to medical things.  Then about 1 or 2 weeks before my surgery I had a dream that I woke up in the hospital post-op and the doctor said that he hadn't been able to complete the surgery and in my dream I was SO disappointed.  It felt real when I woke up.  From that point on, I was pretty much only excited and eager to start the surgical part of the process.  It was like my subconscious was telling me how I really felt.  : )  I've found the psychological part of this journey to be pretty fascinating.  Anyway, I wish you all the best - your date is right around the corner!
