I'm Going Into Hospital And Im Being Put To Sleep By Anesthetic Being Injected Into My Iv Does It Hurt
I'm going into hospital and im being put to sleep by anesthetic being injected into my IV does it hurt?
Very little: Any intravenous medication can sting or burn a little as it is administered, particularly one of the main IV anesthetics called Propofol which does burn a little. However, most patients are given some sedative medication prior to proceeding to the operating room to make the experience more tolerable, and may patients don't even remember receiving the IV medication to put them to sleep. ...Read more
Can I be put to sleep for a c section? Last time I had one it was an emergency and it hurt a lot with lots of pressure.
Anesthesia: It is usually better to get a good spinal for the C-section and actually they can put in Duramorph (morphine) in the spinal to give 18-24 hours of pain relief. You can get a general, but your baby will go to sleep as you do. Theses babies require more vigorous resuscitation after birth then spinal anesthesia c sections. Don't forget too that they can give you a light general or sedation after the baby too ...Read more

Going for a colonoscopy tomorrow. I'm being put to sleep. I am scared I won't wake up, what should I do?
Let go: It is sleep like that induced by too much alcohol or deliberately brought on by a sleeping pill only you will be watched carefully by a doctor during the whole time and you will be woken up to go home when it is done. Colonoscopy can get uncomfortable since air is used to separate the walls of bowel so the inside surface can be carefully examined. The worst part is the preparation the day before. ...Read more

Anesthetic: The answer to this is basically, "it depends." On where the biopsy is coming from, on what type of biopsy, what localization is being done (CT, EUS, etc.) and what your age and clinical conditions are. Fine Needle biopsies often need no anesthesia, some bx need local pain control, and others require general anesthesia (put to sleep.) ...Read more
Possibly: Especially if you feel claustrophobic with a mask in place or if you feel you are not in control of situation. ...Read more
Not, if needed: Some patients are very dental phobic. It's not any fault of their own that they're this way. Some patients require inhalational, conscious, oral, intravenous, and some even general sedation in order to have their dental work done. I don't think that's anything to be embarrassed about. That's just the way it is for some folks. ...Read more
Several options: You can be put to sleep, but that is not the ideal option for your baby becasue those medications can get through to the baby and make him (or her) drowsy/sleepy when they are born, making it a bit harder for them to transition to life outside the womb. Ideal is a spinal where they numb you via your spnal cord, numbing the nerves down there much like a dentist uses to numb your mouth. Congrats! ...Read more

Circumstances: Usually c/sections are performed under regional analgesia, which is epidural or spinal analgesia. If there were extraordinary circumstances that required intubation during a c/section, intubation during a subsequent c/section will only be required, if circumstances are the same (for example, problems with the spine that preclude regional analgesia). ...Read more

I am nervous about getting my prostate exam. How long do doctors have to fiddle around inside my butt? Will I be put to sleep or awake?
No worries: If you can let a dentist fiddle around in your mouth to do a dental cleaning, you can let a proctologist fiddle around inside your butt to check out your prostate. They are merely two ends of the same gastrointestinal tract. Don't bite a dentist when he's cleaning your teeth, and don't squeeze your butt when a proctologist is sizing your prostate. Let him take the time he needs to do his job well. ...Read more

No worries...: Healthy babies in America are recommended to sleep alone (face up until able to roll over, then whatever babies want) in a safe bassinet or crib, from the time they are born. It is not possible nor advisable to constantly watch a baby nor be with a baby while he is sleeping (parents need their rest!). No worries... as what shall be shall be. Parents should not hover over their children too much. ...Read more

Very Few Know: With modern anesthetics we try and shut down the memory of the patient before they go to the or. Once they can't remember what happened, it is very hard to find out what they felt as they went to sleep. Without sedatives the very medication that is used to put people to sleep blocks memory formation, so we have the same problem. Same with waking up. Patients come to in the pacu after the op. ...Read more
