Thanks for all the positive comments :) to answer som questions: yes I'm recovering well. The surgery was to fix a deviated septum. The patient before me didn't immediately respond to the pain meds that's why he was screaming. And I wrote this fml last night at 2 am after the anesthesia wore off

Do not worry, I myself had an operation done on my head when I was young. It is just the reaction from waking up with a bunch of tubes plunged down your throat. Atleast that's what it was for me. And it feels kind of weird not naturally breathing on your own after waking up :)

Haha cheers 49, 52,I wish Mine was as pleasant as you make yours sound like, I was screaming for minute on end until they finally finished butchering my throat. Lucky for you, you never had a thick as hell of a tube get ripped out of the back of your head(while you were awake) or 30+ staples ripped out of your head. Come to think of it I have no idea how I still remember this...

And as someone who has had several surgeries the morphine they give you in the recovery room is a joke. It's like pain pain push of morphine two minutes of no pain then an even more intense pain follows.

I never remembered the recovery room, the morphine they give you with the button is good, but some advice, don't click the button to the tune of a song, it doesn't make the nurses very happy, haha!

That happened to me once I freaked out and peed I was that nervous after!! I am so ashamed.

I swear, hospitals do that just so their patients will freak out, ask for more pain meds, and the hospital can jack up the price for it. Evil hospitals...

It's sarcasm, I forget people on FML seem to lack it. Thumb me down, I don't mind

No in fact I think most hospitals keep the prep room and the recovery room separate. That has always been my experience in several different hospitals i have had surgery in They are trying to keep the patient going into surgery calm so they do not have to worry about a blood pressure spike and such that may cause complications during surgery. And anytime I was nervous I just told them when I have had surgeries and the pushed what the referred to as "happy juice". Into my IV. I hope you came out ok op. many times it depends on which surgeon is performing the operation. Some have more finesse, experience, and or knowledge. Not to mention that guy could have a low tolerance for pain or it was his first surgery. That first surgery you wake up from can be very overwhelming physically and mentally.

I doubt it. They were probably thinking it would be efficient and easier for the surgical staff to access patients if they put pre-op and post-op right next to each other. Besides, when you look at a breakdown of costs from any given surgery, pain meds are not significantly expensive at all.

i found it worked well after my open heart surgery... was on it 3 days, very little pain, even had 3 chest drains removed without major pain. maybe i just have a high pain threshold...

Don't worry, he just found out that the procedure he took gave him cancer, you'll be fine though
