Tales of a pre-op appointment

So I'm having some surgery. Next week, on Thursday.

I'm OK - it's not life or death, but it's surgery.

I'm getting a little bit nervous about it, not sure why. I've had 2 c-sections and was fully under for my gall bladder / appendix removal. Anesthesia doesn't negatively affect me (I've heard some people get really sick - ew). I'm relatively healthy (never smoked, etc.)

But I've been having visions of waking up during surgery, or feeling them cutting me and not being able to scream. That was a movie, wasn't it?


Well today, I had some testing done to get ready for next week. My surgeon took some pictures and messed around. I had blood drawn. Was weighed (i closed my eyes for that one) and measured.

Then I talked to the anesthesiologist and told her - flat out - "I need you to drug me. Drug me hard."

She's all "Honey, don't you worry. We'll chat for a bit, give you an IV and then we send you to Hawaii! You won't feel a thing."

I feel better. A little bit.

Highlight of the day? No less than 5 people saw me naked. 2 were there for pictures. Good times, people. Good times.

Isn't funny we pay people cash money to look at us naked, to "take pictures", to poke (and prod), and to judge our bodies. New Health Care Reform: If you are gonna see me naked and touch me in places that few have clearance for, then, Sir Dr., I will have to start charging you! :)

Of course you're nervous. Just save me some drugs! And some boobie pictures.

No, seriously, good luck.

Was the lighting good for the pic? I would tell them to only take the picture from my "good side"!
