I’m scheduled to have a small operation next week Friday. It’s an FESS sinus thing. I won’t even be in hospital overnight. I’m just nervous about it, because I have no idea how it is going to affect my diabetes and how to cope with it. I switch between thinking that everything is going to be fine and that the professionals know what they are doing, to thinking that my doc might never have performed this op on a diabetic and they might not have the correct info or might forget that I am diabetic. I makes me want to carry orange juice into the operating room and write “diabetic” in black marker on my arm, just in case.
Am I overreacting? Have you had surgery? How did it go? Any tips on how I could handle this?
