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 2 more doctor answers
Death -- I think: Not knowing what death feels like i would assume that anesthesia feels the same in that you feel nothing. You have no sesne that time goes by.

When you wake up, you feel as though no time at all has passed. ...Read moreSee 2 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

Once they can't remember what happened, it is very hard to find out what they felt as they went to sleep.
