Fear of Surgery or Other Treatments
I was incredibly scared of getting a thymectomy. I had already been in and out of the hospital and was frightened that something would go wrong during surgery. I had a panic attack and my blood pressure spiked so much that they almost postponed the whole thing.
Now that I’m on the other side of it, I realize that it was routine surgery and I should have mentally prepared myself for it better.
Have you experienced fear before surgery or other treatments for MG? How did you deal with it? What advice would you give to those who are scared of upcoming treatments/surgery?
