Yes: Propofol has no analgesic properties. If there is pain associated with the procedure, either local anesthesia might be used to numb up the area, or other pain medication might be injected to reduce the pain sensation.

99.86 degrees F: There are multiple programs out there for a smart phone or computer that will give that answer. To convert C to F, multiply by 9, divide by 5, then add 32 To convert F to C, subtract 32, then divide by 9 and multiply by 5

Important: I don't think you have a family "allergy" as much as a deficiency in the enzyme that breaks down succinylcholine, (pseudocholinesterase) which can occur quite commonly. It is IMPERATIVE that you tell your anesthesia provider this information. They can either use an alternative drug, or use succinylcholine and know that it would work longer. You can be tested to know if you have this problem.
