You'll be fine. A friend had told me to allow a full six weeks for recovery, and I did. Pamper yourself. It was a jolt to me to realize that it meant no more babies. My family was complete, but I hadn't really realized how permanent until afterwards. My doctor, or your doctor, should make that clear. It shouldn't be necessary to tell us, and it was silly of me not to comprehend it emotionally, even though I knew it in my mind. But it also means no more periods, which is a plus.
Any surgery makes us nervous, it's perfectly all right. When you go in for your surgery tell you medical people about this feeling so that they can offer comfort and guidance. I am convinced that you will come through this very well. Good luck, and ((hugs.))
