Ok. I just went to the doc because I've have had sinus and fluid build-up issues all my life. He told me I have a deviated septum and need surgery. I have never gone under. I'm terrified! Help. Someone ease my mind!

I have never been under before so I don't know what it is like. I would be nervous like you are. Do you think that something will happen to you when you are under?

I just guess I don't know what to expect.

It's really not that bad. I've been under twice.

You'll be fine :) I've had surgeries before as well. You'll be asleep while it's happening so you won't feel it and it goes by very quickly.

I have had 3 nasal surgeries deviated septum included! You will rest and I had very little pain! Just a little uncomfortable cause your nose will be packed for 3 or so days! Well worth it tho!!! I would do it a 4th time!

They should give you a muscle relaxant that just helps you to relax. You won't remember much after that point. You will wake up and be in the recovery room. Its not bad at all. Just make sure not to eat or drink anything after usually its midnight the night before the surgery. They want you to have an empty stomach before surgery. After you wake up, they will probably bring you crackers and juice or crackers and soda pop. You will probably feel a bit groggy from the anesthesia. Its really not that bad. The not knowing is totally understandable. You'll do just fine! Hugs!!
