Hi Matt, I agree with Linda H.
Take the time to read the journals here, you'll learn a lot and if you have questions ask, you'll get answers from real people who have gone through the same or similar situations, it will make you feel better and less scared.
Hi Matt, Welcome to HVJ. Wish you were on here a while back, might have helped you, but anyway, read some of the journals on here while you have time. There is a lot of info on here that just might help you understand things. It must be really hard to be in a hospital and get turned down again wow. You will be fine and go thru this coming out feeling so much better.Everyone says surgery is better than they thought but its not a cake walk. It takes time for recovery. Just listen to your doctors and your body. You will be amazed. When you cough, sneeze, or hiccup, hold onto your pillow, that will help and dont forget to do the excercises on the spirometer. I wish you the best and may I suggest to do a lot with prayer. It is the best and it will be answered. Good luck to you.
