Default Surgery scheduled next week VTOS

I am scheduled next week to have 1st rib resection and removal of scalene muscles due to VTOS. Not ruling out any neuro damage at this point as well based on symptoms. My main issues are pain, swelling, heaviness, temperature changes- extreme pain in left side of neck and left forearm. I am nervous, not knowing what to expect; especially as I am typically the care taker. Nurses make the worst patients. I am having this procedure done at Shane痴 ( UCF) which is 4 hours away from me) my husband is able to stay with me in the hospital which is a relief. I feel confident in my surgeon who is also the chief in vascular surgery and one of the top professors. I feel blessed to have his skilled hands work on me. It痴 taken years to get to this point, and I知 ready for relief
I知 sure there are a million threads , I知 new here if anyone could help guide me on what to expect. How painful is this, should I expect drain tubes after? How long were you out of work? I believe I will be in the hospital 1-2 nights. Thank you in advance
