Funniest anesthesia laced, drug drunk, things you said or did post op?

So while this surgery is extremely serious, it's extremely humorous what you say or do when high as a kite on anesthesia or morphine. What are some of the funniest moments you had post op? Mine would be two. There are two things I am addicted to. Cigarettes and my iPhone. I decided to quit smoking pre op so that I would heal better, quicker, and quit easier. After surgery, they taped the pulse monitor on my left forefinger (my smoking hand) and it had a red light on the end. I would wake up frequently trying to puff on the red light!!

The second addiction, my iPhone, was taken away from me. The drugs messed up my vision and I would spend an hour trying to send a text. My husband was also concerned about me drunk dialing. So he told me it needed charging and would hide it. If I didn't wake up puffing on my finger, I'd wake up thinking the iPhone was in my hand, with my hands in "iphone position" and with my thumbs going crazy over a screen that wasn't there.

That's just the tip of the iceberg of the things this light weight said. What are some funny things you did or said?

Re: Funniest anesthesia laced, drug drunk, things you said or did post op?

I have no memory of the recovery room at all, but my friend who was with me there said that the recovery room nurse told her that I'm a "sweet, sweet woman." The thing is, most people who know me think of me as rather sharp-tongued. I've definitely got a bit of a temper - it runs in my family.

So when my friend sent this comment out to the general contact list I'd given her, my sister was rather incredulous that anyone would describe me this way! Sis and I talked about it later and decided that when you give me enough dilaudid, then I'm a sweet, sweet woman. We further resolved that from now on, we're going to bring a supply of dilaudid to all family reunions and pass it around so that we can all be sweet, sweet women.

The pulse monitor, omg, the pulse monitor. They didn't tape mine on, they just clipped it. But I move around a lot at night, so it kept coming off, and every time it came off, it would start beeping. So the nurse would come in and I'd be fumbling around trying to get the clip back on while muttering, "Shhh, shhh, quiet! Shhh, shhh!"

I seen posts from sister who had labioplasty done at the same time as their hysterectomy, but I've never heard of anyone defending her thesis at the same time as having a hysterectomy! That would take real talent! *grin*

One morning in the hospital, it was about 4:30am the nurses changed shifts and came in to introduce themselves. it was still very dark in the room and my eyes hadn't adjusted yet. The male nurse gave his name (I dont remember it now but it was a foreign name) I said ”what do you mean your late?” He said,no ma'am and repeated his name. I told him, ”oh I thought you were the grim reaper!”

Re: Funniest anesthesia laced, drug drunk, things you said or did post op?

When my family asked if I wanted hospital visitors I told them they didn't have to with only a 1 night stay and I probably would be out of it after surgery anyway. To which they said "Exactly! We don't want to miss your silly ramblings!" They've heard them with 2 past surgeries.

I know I don't remember much but my hubby said I was showing my band-aid covered incisions and telling him to take a picture! Luckily he knew better than me!
