    30,000 people a year wake during surgery

    New monitors no help for patients 'entombed in a corpse,' study says

    Patients say it feels like being trapped in a corpse: They awake during surgery, unable to move or scream. Some remember hearing their surgeons talk, and a few recall feeling intense pain.

    Some experts have said special brain-wave monitors were the best way to prevent anesthesia awareness. Now, in a big setback for efforts to prevent it, the first large, independent test of the monitors shows they are no better than older technology..................

    Dude, I hate when that happens.
    It still beats waking up in Tijuana in a bathtub full of ice with a dirty blood-soaked bandage loosely strewn across your mid-section though.

    Haha, I love that urban legend.
    If someone wanted to cut out your kidney why would they bother keeping you alive?

    So they could come back for the other one or perhaps the liver & the eyes?

    I'm one of the 30,000.
    Had left total hip replacement surgery in July.
    Woke up when the Dr was pounding the new femoral stem into the middle of the femur they just cut off.
    Didn't feel any pain...just felt pounding.
    Put me down shortly thereafter.
    Not looking forward to having the right one done in a couple of years

    I'm getting my right elbow done on the 27th.
    Gonna chip some of the extra crap out and get all the loose floaters out at the same time.

    I sure could have lived without this thread.
    Might have to injest a 30 pack of the beast before I head in to make sure I feel no pain.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    People make it sound like this is a bad thing.....

    Fact of the matter is, it's a far cry better than dying.
