panick acttacks. is this normal ?
Are you getting panicked by anything particular, or just panicked? I worked on the cardiac floor, took care of bypass patients for years. I am not a doc though, i would say your just anxious about another big surgery. Those r two huge surgeries very close together, and I would probably panick too. I would mention it to ur doc just to be on the safe side though.
I'm just coming up for surgery for a problem that I've complained about for 30 years and I understand at one level that killing someone is nice and relatively safe while they do their magic, but it absolutely terrifies me even though I know that there is only just a tiny chance of something going wrong.
I'm feeling quite a bit more anxious than usual so I would say it is probably normal. I tend to worry about really improbable things like waking up without a leg when you went in for gallstones; things like that. I'm almost phobic about it.
Good luck with getting your neck fixed, does it interfere with your sleep now? Certainly something the surgeon and anaesthetist should be made aware of. Get your PCP to fax them a medical update as a courtesy. They ask you all of this again the day or so before surgery, I tend to forget things unless I write it down. But it never hurts to be sure.
Creel55, Just as you have been told I would for sure let the doctor know that you're having the anxiety or Panic attack, But it really is pretty normal going through one major surgery and just waiting to heal and build up a little and know the other one is getting very close. Just make sure you let your doctors know about this new problem, But also try and remember the benefits of getting all of this over with.
Good luck. Chuck1957
