Customer Reviews for Preparing for Surgery

The day after I decided to have double mastectomy and reconstruction surgery, I went into shock. I knew it was the right decision, but emotionally, I wasn't ready. I found Dr. Rossman's "Preparing for Surgery" program online and it literally saved me. I listened to it twice a day for almost two weeks before the surgery as recommended, and it completely changed my attitude. I can't thank Dr. Rossman enough for this program.

I've used this for 2 surgeries and it was very helpful both times. It helped calm my anxiety before, and get through the recovery phase without too much discomfort. Ask if you can have it playing into headphones during the surgeries.

I have found these guided imagery exercises to be very helpful both before and after surgery. Martin speaks with just the right tone of voice.

I benefited greatly having this audio to prepare for my surgery and for post surgery. I found it extremely helpful and would highly recommend it.

I used this tape as designed for preparation and recovery of a major surgery. It was magnificant. I believe it helped me to be completely prepared and am still using twice daily, as this is day 5 post op. i am exceeding all recovery projections. Thank you for the wisdom and guidance offered through this excellent healing meditation tape!

I bought this CD for my total knee replacement. unfortunately it didn't delivered what I expected. I found it boring to listen almost the same words in all sequences even if there are some slight variations of words. After 2 days I had enough and turned towards other audios.

I was never able to download this item, thus was never able to use it prior to my surgery.
I tried multiple times to download it per the instructions and the file would not download.
So I am out the money for this item.
Luckily my surgery went very well and I am on the path to recovery. I will not order another item from your website again
I was required to give this a rating of 1 star but would actually rate this a zero.

Not useful, any relaxation tape would have been just as good.
