How bout both?

I had a general for my TAH/BSO and MMK bladder repair and then an epidural for post op pain. It worked great for me. I slept through surgery and no nausea. I also did not have the fuzzy head and was actually able to read a book while in the hospital!

The epidural was in for two days andwas able to walk with it. (Don't ask my how). Something about I was only numb in certain areas, but my legs were ok, felt a little funny but nothing that stopped me from walking.

If I ever get a choice in the future, that is the way I want to go.
