Thank you all so much for your input and encouragement, the surgeon told me I will be in for a long hall because of being a smoker. I went to my family doctor this morning and she has given me a perscription for morphine to help with this pain before my surgery. I was told to bring my c-pap machine to the hospital with me for the surgery and afterwards. My family doctor also ordered me a walker and a scooter to help me with my recovery before my next surgery in three months because I have copd and take oxegen during the day and at night. Hopefully everything will work out I am just so scared I can't even think

Good luck buttons, I know it is a very scary ordeal. The good news is it wasn't nearly as scary as I thought it would be. I wish you the best.
