    I was very stressed in the couple of days leading up to my op. Intellectually I knew it was neccesary, and even welcome, but my subconcious was going “Hang on, they’re going to take a knife to our stomach!” I am not at all sure what the Anataesiogist did, but he knew I was anxious, and blood pressure was climbing. However, he said it would all be fine. He put the mask over my mouth, I did the counting backwards, and next thing I knew it was four hours later and I woke up in my room and the op was all over. Whatever he did, it was magic 🙂
