Nick listen don't worry, its not an open chest surgery. It's not as bad as you think. the Xiphoid process is superficial, thats why you'll be sent home right after the operation. Because to be frank, its not that complex of an operation. I speak from experience (Medical student at the Gdansk medical university in Poland), I have seen a similar operation, you have almost nothing to worry about. I wish you all the best :)
