Hello Triona- 

I just wanted to welcome you to our forum and wish you the best of luck for your surgery. It must be a very stressful time for you at the moment but you will find out more very soon. I hope you don't have to wait too long for your surgery date. 

I am not sure what type of surgery you are having but it might be worth giving your doctor a call and asking them more information on the surgery and whether it will be performed under general anaesthetic. They will be in the best position to advise you on this and give you all the information you need ahead of your operation. 

I hope everything goes well for you!

Best wishes,
