    Well... for now, I'd recommend watching a movie or reading a book or something, to get your mind off of it. It is easy to fixate on something scary or anxiety-inducing, and usually that's the least helpful thing to do. So if you can do something... play basketball with a friend, watch a funny movie, whatever helps you to not think about it for a little while, that's probably best for now, until you can find out whether you actually need the procedure.

    Hang in there...!

    Sorry you're feeling so scared...
    No I think it needs to be done. The comfort zone is too small. People need to go through this stuff to get over it.

    It doesn't really matter if it's low risk if I'm in the bathroom taking gauze out when I faint and hit my head on the sink, and nobody cares because nobody cares, and then I'm laying there while my concussion forms.

    It sounds like you have some severe anxiety. Have you considered seeking help about this? It isn't healthy or normal to think this way. (I'm not saying this in a judging way, i've suffered some awful panic and anxiety as well). I'm just saying, there's absolutely no reason for you to have to live in fear all the time.

    There is a reason, and it's that therapists are quacks.

    Not all therapy is bogus.

    You clearly have an anxiety disorder of some kind. Cognitive therapy, perhaps mixed with exposure therapy, may help you.

    If that does not work, try anxiety medication.

    hahaha.
    I agree. They never worked for me.
    At the same time, it's like, would you rather be walking around in extreme fear all the time, or just happy and normal? Someone can at least put you on some meds to bring down that anxiety level just enough for you to be able to straighten out your own thoughts, even if you don't talk to a therapist. You have to do something for yourself. Right now this surgery seems to be just a big reservoir for your anxiety.

    I do not like cognitive therapy. I do not like it at all.

    I'm not going back. I'd rather stab myself with a kitchen knife.
