Surgery tomorrow and I'm a big chicken!

I have a D&C in the morning, and I am so nervous about it! I do not handle general anesthesia well at all - my blood pressure crashes, and also I take forever to wake up. Also worried about pain and complications. I've never been like this with past surgeries, and they were serious ones.

Looks like not much sleep for me tonight.

When I had mine done, they did a subconscious sedation, not a full on Anesthesia

They do not put you under as deeply, so waking up should be easier. If they know about the bp, they can take steps with that. My bp seriously crashes with some anesthesia and not at all with others. 

I have had multiple d and cs and they are really nothing...minimal pain and minimal cramping afterwards. If you have made it through major surgeries, this is a cake walk. Good luck and try to get some rest.

 Ever since I had my son, periods are so heavy I am now severely anemic. Trying to get them back to normal.
