Cue cards for Dr.s?

Greeting ladies, I'm hoping for some posts from posts. I have been reading a couple of books by surgeons>sp that talk about the mind body connection and both mention how they say a few positive affirmations to their patients while they are under anesthesia. One reccomends giving your surgeon and anesthesiologist 'cue cards' with specific sayings like "following this operation, you will feel comfortable and you will heal very well". Pretty generic, but you can get more specific. Anyway, my question is.....have any of you asked your Dr.s to do this and how did you approach it? Thanks to all!

Hi, What a neat idea that is. I have never heard of this particular procedure, but maybe my reply will get the ball rolling. When I had my DNC in November I woke up crying for no real reason. I would have my Dr say "you will wake up very happy." Take care! Melanie

I've never heard of this, either.

I have read something similar, however... that surgery is really a very "intimate" experience in that you literally put your life in the surgical team's hands. By literally "turning yourself over" to the surgical team (and to God or a higher power if you're a spiritual person) you supposedly increase your chance of a good outcome because your physical and spiritual systems are relaxed. So it would also make sense that saying affirmations such as you suggest would also be a good thing, in that they would create a positive mental state. It actually makes alot of sense to me.

I hope another (((sister))) comes along with more insight to share.
