Not sure the sedation was strong enough - they said it'd be like being very drunk, and I probably wouldn't remember anything.
Don't feel drunk, and remember quite a lot of cutting, chipping and tugging
Looking forward to a few days feeling sorry for myself, mooching about doing nothing but reading - my favourite part of feeling poorly
Decades ago, when they took mine out, I do believe they forgot to put the diazepam in the IV (This being before invention of Versed) I remember every bit of it and being unable to talk what with four hands shoved directly in my mouth, I couldn't remind them. Mom was all very solicitous and acted as if I should be about whacked out when she picked me up. At that point, my mouth was so full of coton that I could still not talk. It took two days to get to the point of being able to curse loudly enough to let them know that I was not pleased.
Funny how I didn't go into surgery after that.
