Re: Waking up during surgery
I had this happen to me when I had bunion surgery. I lifted my head up, said "Excuse me, but I can feel that." You should have seen the looks on their faces!
It seems that I metabolise anesthiesa extremely rapidly. My doctor told my hubby that I had enough in me for 4 people. By the time I got to recovery I was wide awake and chipper as could be...Got home and crashed for 6 hours... The same thing happened the next time I had the other foot done.
What you sister needs to do is to sit down with the anesthesiologist and tell him/her what happened last time-with a copy of her records if she has them so they are made aware of the issues. They will then be prepared to watch out for level of consciencousness. It is just an easy thing to watch for . They can very easily keep her under with a little extra work.
When I notified my doc. of my issues when I had my back surgery, he was most appreciative. He said that is something that they need to know as it helps them with how they medicate you for your surgery..
