There is a machine that measures brain waves that you can request. That was my biggest fear of surgery too...I had my wisdom teeth taken out, no problems. I was almost in a panic attack when they put me under bc I had such a fear of surgery...but I promise, it really isn't that bad. It feels like you sleep for 3 minutes and you are back up. 

Quoting D.O.E.:

What if I am under and can still feel it?!

Quoting countrymomma81:

They actually give you stuff to relax before they put you all the way under so you really won't have time to be freaked. It's a very easy procedure and you will be fine.

What you guys talking about?



Quoting The.Last.Rebel:

I wish I'd have known about possible side effects before having mine done :/

Quoting poietes:

Idk, I refused because I was worried about the side effects. So my dh got snipped instead.

They do give you something to relax you.  Why are you having it done?

I know and understand your fears but I had mine done 7 yrs ago and it was super easy.   I was out and about the next day and  knowing I wll never have another baby was worth everything..

Don't get all worked upbefore you get the gas. even ask the doc/nurse for a pre sedative right after you get there if you think you are going to bawl like a baby or panic :) 

lol I always ask for the pre sedative.. And they are happy to give it.
