Re: OMG my doc said i will only be sedated and not put to sleep for my surgery...
Actually, I've had gynecological procedures done both sedated (twice) and put under general. And to be honest, I prefer the sedation. You're still asleep and you still get this awesome drug called Versed, which helps you forget anything - hence the feeling of having just fallen asleep when they're waking you again.
The reason why I prefer not getting general is because that breathing tube really irritates my throat a lot. And I had a sore throat for at least 4 days later. Thing is, they monitor you while youre sedated to make sure you don't wake up while they're doing the procedure. So it's not like you should worry about waking up.
Also, I was less nauseated and way less groggy after sedation than after general. After general, I was in bed for 2 days after because I was just so worn out from it. But after sedation, I was up and walking around the next day feeling just fine.
So, in my personal opinion, I'd always go for the sedation over general, if it's possible. For me, it was better. I can understand if you're scared, but having been through both, I can tell you that my personal preference is sedation, for the reasons I described.
