How many times have your kid(s) been put under with anesthesia?  For what surgeries?  We're you worried each time?

Dd is having laser surgery next week on her birthmark.  This is the 35 th surgery.  She has had 3 neck surgeries also for torticollis.  38 times is a lot.  Every time there is always a risk.

Not many times.

DD19 had a lap/D+C at 16
DS17 had his appendix removed at 12

The younger 3 haven't had any surgeries. Of course I was worried, it's my job to worry about them at the best of times, let alone when they are having operations.

Just once, for emergency appendectomy.  She was fine.  I wasn't worried.  It was 11pm and I'd missed dinner, so I spent her surgery looking for chocolate and potato chips.  DH spent the time freaking out and wondering how I could eat.  

I had to look up torticollis.  Is it really hard to correct?  That's a whole different story than one appendectomy.  I'm sorry.  The stress must be terrible.  In your position, I'm sure I'd be holding my breath every single time.

All 3 of my  boys have been under.  The first two for Pyloric Stenosis and the third for an Intesuption (sp?) repair.  

forgot to add...  I was ok until they were in recovery.  Then I was a mess and overwhelmed with relief, stress and everything else.

None so far, but I think we will be lookin at a tonsil removal this year. Ds isn't sleeping because of his horrible snoring. Possibly tubes too. Hoping he grows out of all of it like his brother did.

My oldest was put down for dental work. It scared the hell outta me. It literally took seconds for him to go limb.i swear it felt like looking at my dead son. I cried when I walked out to meet my so.

My oldest was put under for eye sugery on both of her eyes because the muscles in her eyes were too loose and were causing crossing.  I was a NERVOUS wreck! I cried the whole time she was in surgery.
