musical surgery, detox and eyes

Two weeks to go. Too busy to think about much.

Has anybody used an MP3 to listen to music while in surgery? I would rather hear soft new-age music or meditative visualizations than the chatter of the surgery staff. Any suggestions?

Also, any suggestions for ways to help my system detoxify the general anesthesia in my body.

Has anybody had their eyelids done at the same time? Heck, I will already be in and under.

Hi Catherine!

Are you having general anesthesia, spinal block or epidural? You asked how to detoxify yourself after general anesthesia so I am assuming that is what you are having. I had general anesthesia so I was completely out during my surgery and unaware of anything going on. I didn't hear or see anything.

The best thing I did to get rid of the anesthesia afterwards was doing the breathing exercises the nurses had me do and drinking plenty of water.

As for having cosmetic surgery at the same time, I don't have any experience with. Some ladies have tummy tucks done at the same time but it is really up to your own doctor. I haven't heard of anyone having eyelids done at the same time. You would have to ask your doctor about that.

I wish you the very best! Hang in there! s

Even with general anesthesia you still "hear" what's said. Your body still knows. So, with that, ask your doctor. Only he/she can tell you if your own music would be allowed. Listening to affirmations during surgery can't be a bad thing. In fact it could help speed the healing. If you can't do it during surgery, be sure and do those before the big day, and in you castle room following surgery.

As for detox afterwards -- that's a tough call. Water and lots of it. Do a search for detox after surgery. Personally, I wouldn't attempt such a detox without my doc's help. (He's does CAM.) There are simply too many variables to consider and everyone is different.

Hope this helps a little.

While you may hear things, you will have no memory it. It's not like sitting in the dentist's chair. From what I've read, most anesthesia is aspirated by your lungs, and leaves your system pretty fast. That's why they have you breathe into that aspirator--to clear the lungs of it. A bit may lurk in the bloodstream, but not likely for more than a day or two.

I don't know about anyone else, but I wanted to listen to the "chatter" in the operating room before I went under. It made me feel better that no one was saying anything dumb like "I've never seen one of these before" or something to that effect. It sounded like everyone knew exactly what they were doing.

What was weird about this operation though was that they took me in the operating room probably fifteen minutes before they put me under. However I found that to be more comforting than imagining the worst like I was doing in the waiting room!
