Is it normal to be this nervous before BA surgery?

I'm having breast augmentation surgery on Dec 7 (about 3 weeks out) and I am completely freaking out now. I have wanted them for 6 years (I'm a 36 small B cup but losing them slowly as I'm losing weight again) and went to a consultation the other day. I was in a hurry to begin with so everything happened lightning fast and by the time I walked out an hour later, I'd been approved for financing, a down payment of 1k had been made to reserve my surgery date and I was all scheduled. I was so excited and part of me still is, however...
I've been reading a ton of horror stories online about women who have developed capsular contracture and health issues including other painful complications or permanent numbing and are dying to just have them removed but can't afford it. I'm officially freaked out! What's worse is that if I wanted to change my mind and call the whole thing off, I'd have to pay the amount of my reservation fee (1k) just to get out of it! So that would put me behind just over 2k for absolutely nothing. I'm obviously going To continue with surgery because of that but I'm just so nervous now! The only thing keeping me from having a total meltdown is the fact that I chose a board certified, very professional surgeon with plenty of great reviews and experience and that most of the horror stories are from some years ago. I know implants and the whole process has improved greatly over the past few years too. Still nervous though!
Please, will anyone who dealt with this or is post-augmentation and can give me some advice please help me out here? Did anyone have this level of nervousness or jitters? Thanks for your input!
