Please do not critisize me...I am already VERY SCARED. Anyone who has gone through this or is scared to go through the sugery please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I have strange circumstances. I have Hypervhentilated three times 2 AND 1/2 years ago due to past drug abuse (I am clean now.) I now cannot take anyting that make me feel "funny or stoned" or painkillers cuz it makes me hypervhentilate and extemely scared and anxious. I am due in one month to get my tonils removed due to 9 cases of strep in 2 years, chronic throat infections, oversized tonsils, sleep apnea. I am so scared of pain!!!! Help me with any insight you have for not freaking out while on pain meds, Thanks you for your help...you are blessed for helping.
