In brief: Depends

Usually in pre op you are given something to relax you and you really don't remember a lot after that.
Then you go into the operating room and are given some medicine in your IV and in seconds you are out like a light! it is painless !

In brief: 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.
