What Does General Anesthesia Feel Like After I Come To
Drowsy at first: Many people are surprised when they wake up, because it feels as though no time has passed at all. They can't believe that their procedure is actually over. You may feel a little groggy, and it's fine to go back to sleep. Mild nausea and a little pain from the surgery are also common. Ask your nurse for medicine to relieve nausea or pain. You'll feel more normal over the first hour or two. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Feelings Will Differ: Depending on how long the procedure lasts, how extensive the surgery is, your general medical condition and the types of medications you take routinely. After some procedures, a longer "wake-up" is desirable; for others, an immediate "wake-up "may occur, though you my have no memory of the events postoperatively until much later! prolonged sedation or antegrade amnesia are at work here. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Im having knee surgery in a week and I am terrified. Does the IV hurt? What does it feel like to be on anesthesia?
Normal to be anxious: The IV doesn't hurt more than a flu shot. Once the IV is in, you will probably be given a small of sedative to help you feel relaxed and sleepy. Most patients don't remember much after after that point, until they wake up after surgery. It's understandable to be anxious. But you should know that you are never left alone while under anesthesia. We stay with you to keep you anesthetized and safe. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Very Few Know: This sounds like a non- answer, but let me explain. 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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What allows me to wake up under general anethesia? I have woken up two different times while under general sedation. I am having major back surgury soon and will discuss this with the doc prior, but i really don't want to wake up during this go-round. An
Not enough drug: The first thing to remember is that with sedation you were never actually put to sleep. Thus it is not unusual to remember parts of the procedure. General anesthesia is a much deeper state. It is possible to be awake under general anesthesia, but the only reason is that your anesthesia provider has not given you enough drug. Talk with you anesthesiologist before your procedure about your concerns. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Why do I always feel jittery, nauseous, agitated and generally uncomfortable after meals? This seems to occur no matter what i eat, what can I do?
Abnormal insulin...: I'd recommend you explore this with an internist, endocrinologist or gastroenterologist. Some people have an abnormal Insulin response to the ingestion of a meal. There was an old term, "reactive hypoglycemia" linked to this phenomenon- google it and see what you find out, but certainly, discuss it with your doctor after you collect all the observations & details on yourself! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What to do if I am having surgery on my brain but I faint when I see needles. can u get general anaeathetic without a needle?
Brain surgery: No. General anesthesia is performed with intravenous medicines. However, you are not alone. Most people hate needles and many become faint at the sight or the first stick (vasovagal response). The anesthesiologist will give medicine to help you relax and you will be lying on a stretcher when they first place the needle to avoid fainting. Focus on a speedy recovery from surgery and not the needle. ...Read more
I don't know exactly how to explain but many a times or now I should say regularly after a short interval I feel unconscious and dizzy?
From what i know about gen. Anesthesia, you get a shot, they put a mask over you and you wake up. But is there any weird activity when you wake up like laughing gas?
Generally not.: Most patients wake up uneventfully from a general anesthetic, assuming they have adequate pain control. There is something called emergence delirium, it is a phenomena which is fairly common in children and uncommon in adult patients. Patients with ptsd can wake up quite disoriented as well. If you have a history of ptsd, you should mention it to your anesthesiologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I feel like I should get a feeling- some kind of "aha" moment by now. How will i know when i actually recover from my eating disorder?
You may not: The habits and thought processes associated with eating disorders may take quite a long time to manage. The potential for relapse after many years of healthy eating is quite high. Keep working at your program and committing to healthy eating and you will get to the point where it feels more natural to just manage your eating without much thought. ...Read more
What exactly does it feel like to be put under anesthesia and how long does it take to fall asleep?
Anesthesia Feeling: Patients describe feelings of relaxation, euphoria, peace, and tranquility, also, a warm feeling running through their body. The onset of induction - falling asleep - is usually fairly rapid, like within 30 seconds to 1 minute, but does depend on the agent(s) being used.

Im going to pain management in the morning to get a shot in my back what should I expect to happen and how am I gonna feel after, and does it hurt?
Aftereffects: "a shot"! this is likely an epidural injection where he/she injects a steroid into or onto the area that is damaged. If successful the pain relief will be quick due to the local anesthesia, then may wear off for a few days until the steriod effect come in (5 to 10 days). Worst effects i see are recovery from anesthesia, which is variable, but may take a few hours to wear off. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
