Surgery this week

Mentally prepping for my Arteriogram/Embolization surgery on Friday the 18th...I have had 4 major surgeries and 3 minor surgeries since March of 2010...and this is the first one that I am nervous about...I can't shake this bad feeling I have!!! :(

Which embolic agent will the doctors be using, Tash?

Just remember fear stands for…False Events Appearing Real! Nothing bad has happened yet so try and think positive! I will be praying for you!

"Good luck" Tash. I'll say a prayer for you.


Barbara, I like that (smiles).

Ill pray for you!! Everything will be ok. Just think positive and things will fall into place. Time heals everything

Thank you all for my well wishes…I agree with the power of positivity…I am trying to stay positive…and I am otherwise healthy, broken, but healthy…I am strong and have made it through other major surgeries without a hitch…I am just having a very strange feeling this time…never had this procedure done, so maybe it’s just fear of the unknown…Dancermom…they are not 100% which agent they will be using…they had me sign off for 4 different ones (onyx, alcohol, coils, and another one, but I can’t remember)…they want to wait until the get in and then confirm which agent would be best in my case…I am so thankful for this group and all of your support!!! :slight_smile:

Tash, you’re in my prayers and keep looking up and forward even when that’s the last thing you want to do. Many of us know first hand how you feel. Just breathe and know we’re all rooting for you! Magda
