Having an operation is such a daunting thought , even more scary if something was to go wrong. In my time I gave had a fair few operations as I have suffered with ENT problems my whole life. This started with a tonsillectomy when I was 3 and then many more sinus and throat operations in my late twenties. Thankfully for myself nothing went wrong and all was as planned.
