Talk to your surgeon: Any surgical procedure can be scary. Talk to your surgeon and his staff who will be working with you on your surgeries. They should be able to address any concerns and provide you with information about your concerns to help you feel more comfortable about your upcoming surgeries. You can also go to myoms.Org, a website with information on your procedures.

Talk to your General DDS. Get a second opinion. All these folks have your best interest at heart. Have them explain what the end result will be for you and any additional treatment you will need after these surgery. Do this before Any Surgery. Best to you.
