Divya imparts advice for women preparing for open-heart surgery.
I would say just be strong for your family. They are deriving their confidence from you, and if you were to just fall apart and manifest all your nervousness, you’re just ruining it for everybody. So my focus was just to be strong and be normal, and because I was so normal and I was so confident that my doctor would do a good job and it is for the better, that it really had a calming influence on the other members.
My mother was here and my husband and my children, so we were pretty much normal till the last day when I actually had to go in for the surgery, and I think just be strong for your family. That’s most important.
