Re: Re: successful surgery!

thanks, but dont be nervous. believe me, i am the biggest clausterphobic/anxious/panicky person around and i went through it, luckily, you wont remember a damn thing, which is the GREAT part about it, it just goes by quickly. what you have to prepare for is excessive thirst along with a sore throat from anaesthesia, and a bit of a headache. youll be in good hands
