I am suppose to have ACDF surgery in June and Im scared , is it normal to be scared. Im scared of the anesthesia
If you weren't scared, I would be worried about you, I had ACDF surgery C4-C7 2 years ago, everything went really well and so far things are still good.
Take care and keep us posted
I think in all reality, everyone is scared of any kind of surgery. But especially the anesthesia. You have to have faith and trust in your surgeon. One of the things I try to stress is have a positive attitude, before and after surgery.
When I went to the hospital for all of my lab work, I asked for a tour of the floor I would be on and a room. Everyone was so nice and answered all my questions. I felt so much better.
