Anesthesia

Hello! Let me begin by wishing you my best and letting you know that you will be in my thoughts!

I had an epidural and lots of drugs for my operation. Let me tell you what I had done:
TVH
Anterior and Posterior repair
Bladder suspension
rectal repair/hemrrhoidectomy
Tummy Tuck

I was not put under general even though I was in surgery for 6 hours. I was feeling great by that evening...able to walk around the next morning. (My operation was from 9:30 to 3:30p.m.) Actually, my anesthesiologist decided to go this route. I had not made myself familiar with the various methods available. Kudos to you! Anyhow, I feel that I didn't have to deal with as much physically as I would have had I been under general. PLUS, my Dr. had some funny stories to tell me about things I talked about! Don't worry, I didn't feel a thing, and I don't remember anything past having the epidural put in.
Good for you for educating yourself. I hope that I have helped in some small way! Take Care!
