I've had a ton of surgeries, and I can say that: I really, really hate IV's. What I do is tell them to knock me out with the gas, then they can put the IV in. It's much, much better that way. For me at least. So, if you ever have to go under again (which hopefully you will never have to again) you can tell them to give you the "knock-out" gas. =)

Good luck, and don't worry. Everything'll be fine, and you'll be back to normal before you know it. Mind over matter. If you wanna get better faster, then you will.

EDIT: Fixed my post. Lol. Mind OF matter changed. Heh.

How fast did the IV knock you out.

You know, I don't really remember. For the gas, I remember slowly drifting off into sleep, while clinging onto my last thought before totally passing out, but...hmmm...I'd say the IV is just slightly faster. But with the IV, I'm awake one minute, then the next thing I know, I'm waking up after the surgery is done.

Still, though, I prefer the gas.

Ah, yeah. And you kind of go numb with the gas. First you're laying there, looking up at the ceiling. They put the mask over your face and tell you to breathe in through your nose. After a few breaths, your body starts to go numb. As you continue breathing, everything becomes less stressful, and you just relax. You can't really feel anything. All you have are your thoughts about you, and see the people milling about you. Then...you pass out.

Oh, no. That won't happen. They monitor you and stuff to ensure that something like that doesn't happen. I've thought about the same thing myself, but believe me, they wouldn't allow a patient to regain conscei...cons....to wake up during a surgery.

consciousness?
Anyway, you won't feel a thing...not until after anyway :P I have never had a surgery myself, but when you think of it as fearing something that may save your life, it seems kind of silly. Yet that won't stop most of us from fearing it. Just try not to sweat it, if it was me, I would be dreading that long wait more than the actual surgery. It's the same thing with my mom really, if she says she will be an hour, expect it to take 2. You're in for a loooooong day, but the actual surgery is relatively short apparently.

You will be fine my man, I have had 3 surgeries myself and the getting put to sleep part is awesome. Its the best sleep EVER. After your surgery REMEMBER THIS....... Tell the nurse if you want ANYTHING...... Jello, Drinks, whatever and they will bring it to you. Its prob one of the few times we actually can get pampered lol. Dont be nervous about it, as it a really common surgery as everyone else has said, you will feel much better when its said and done. Be droppin a prayer for you.

@Trevor...... I know its prob weird and all but I like shots for some reason. I actually went to nursing school after high school and was one of the few that could handle getting shots and got praticed on a bit :D

Actually, shots don't bother me. IV's kill me. Heh. Go figure. IV's used not to bother me all that much when I was younger, but recently it seems they've been worse. Also, if I'm gettin' blood drawn or somethin', I'm fine...as long as I don't look at it.

Lol, But hey, you'd think as much as I've been in the hospital (practically since I was born), this kinda stuff wouldn't bother me. In fact, I once contemplated a career as a doctor. But I can't handle the blood or anything of the sort, so that option got tossed out the window. =P I'm glad some people can handle it, though.

I remember my first surgery. I was only six years old and scared to death. The only thing that keep me from running from the hospital, was an assurance from my parents that a Gamecube would be waiting at home for me.

Good luck. I had my first surgery when I was 20, and I remember how nervous I was. I know it's a routine surgery, but no surgery feels routine when you're the one being operated on. I wish you all the best and a speedy recovery.

Good luck! As others have said, it's a pretty standard procedure in any hospital with virtually no chance of any problems. I could have done without the info about your urethra........
