Forced CS after myomectomy? VERY anxious

I have to say that I hate hospitals, I hate IVs, I hate anaesthetic, and I hate having no choice in what happens to me/where I go. I have had bad experiences being in hospital. IVs are horribly painful for me; I can't imagine trusting them to stick a needle in my spine. I'm feeling extremely anxious about the whole thing and just want to go in, have my baby, and leave the next day. It was at least 6 months before I felt back to normal after the myomectomy, and the thought of recovering from a caesarian makes me want to cry (as does the idea of being imprisoned in a hospital for a week and not being able to go home). It is worrying me to the point that I can't sleep if I start thinking about it.
My doctor is also the surgeon who did my myomectomy, and he told me originally that I will have to have a caesarian to avoid the risk of labour rupturing the uterus. I'm seeing him again on Thursday and I guess I'm just wondering if there is any hope that I can do this the old-fashioned way....?
Thanks for any advice you can offer!
