Default 2 weeks to surgery

Hi Everyone
I think I was last in here a few years ago and now it's all happening...I am 36 and I have a 68 degree curve that will hopefully be straightened into the 20's in two weeks time. Fusion will be T5-L2.
I'm currently sitting awaiting the pre-op appointment and so scared that this is actually happening. I have read through the posts and love reading all the experiences and trying to prepare myself as much as possible but also prepare family for what is about to happen. My main concern is actually getting to the theatre on the morning of and waking up in extreme pain and sickness.
Any advise in dealing with this would be greatly appreciated and also ways to deal with the meds causing depression.
I know everyone is different in their recovery time but I have spent 12 months doing core strength and exercise. It's probably the only time in my life I will have a 6 pack!!
Hopefully I can return to work around 8-9 weeks even for a couple of days/hours.
Thanks for all posting your experiences. I would love to hear from others in the same boat too
