I am 15 will be having back surgery(again) this summer to replace a rod in back that has come apart. I am very scared because the last time I had back surgery I got Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). I know that they will take more precautions this time but I’m still scared. I know that I should not be afraid if I trust in God, and I pray every day to Him but I still have fear. I thank you for your thoughts.
