Are you SURE you have to have the surgery? Did you get a second opinion?
If you are truly at peace with this, then the next thing is being proactive. One is doing what you are doing now, by asking questions.
The other thing is being in the best physical shape you can be in. That includes eating well.
Talk with a nutritionist about how you can beef up your system to heal quicker.
Also, what to apply to the scar area, too, would be good. There's some great stuff out there.
Best wishes.... AND, keep in touch.
