    I am getting nervous as the time of my recovery or interview is approaching.

    I am getting nervous as the time of my recovery is "approaching" or "coming nearer" (I mean the time when doctors ask me to stop wearing brace and taking medicines). I am getting a bit apprehended as the interview time is "approaching" or "coming closer". Its only two and a half month to go until my interview.


    Please check my sentences.

    Please check your own first. After having hundreds of your mistakes corrected, you still make basic slips, wasting your time and ours.

    Drop "to go" and you have a compact sentence expressing the idea. If you want "to go" in it, start with "There are" - though there's no reason for the extra words.

"It is only two and a half months until my interview or recovery time" or "there are only two and a half months to go until my interview or recovery time".

    How about the other sentences are they correct? Could you please check those as well?

    "Approaching" is better than "coming closer".

    The word you want is not "apprehended", which means "caught" or "arrested".

    Re: I am getting nervous as the time of my recovery or interview is approaching.

    Recovery is usually a gradual process so I find it unnatural to refer "my recovery approaching/my approaching recovery". In your case, I would just use something like "I am getting apprehensive as I approach the day that the doctors will tell me that I can stop wearing my brace and stop taking my medication".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
