A man who underwent vagus nerve stimulation surgery listened to the Successful Surgery imagery and he says it did his pre-op anxiety and his post-op pain a world of good.. I underwent Vagus Nerve Stimulation surgery yesterday. My therapist recommended "Successful Surgery" a month ago. I got it, and forgot all about it until night before last. I started listening non-stop. I even looped the subliminal part to listen while I slept [Ed. Note: There actually is no subliminal part, but there is a music track]. It lessened my anxiety pre-op. My post-op pain was not too severe, and today it''s not much worse than soreness after a good workout. I was able to cut back on pain meds, and I feel much more alert. Thank you and please post this message.
