  1. I too felt nervous about my op and when one of the consultants came to check on me before my op asking how I was I explained that I did feel very nervous. She looked me in the eye, smiled and responded ,
    “I’d be very worried if you weren’t!”
    She made me laugh and this reply made me realise that it is very normal to feel nervous.
