Getting Surgery This Summer. Someone Help.

Hi. I was diagnosed very recent and ....well I'm getting surgery this summer. It's the Nuss Procedure for my Pectus Excavatum(indent in chest). It's a symptom of Marphans so I thought I could post a question here. I don't exactly know how to ask this..... Look I'm really scared. They basically put a metal bar in my chest that pushes up on my indent. And I'm scared. I know I won't be awake but it sounds awful. There's a six week recovery needed and the pains supposed to be so bad that I'll have a little button I can push for pain meds. Also the idea is scary. There's gunna be some doctor guy messing around with my chest. I just don't know what to do, how to respond. I am totally lost and scared.

I use to have an indent when I was little it however it wasn't very pronounced and puberty either helped it or covered it up pretty good
