General anaesthesia is ALWAYS better. That way you can't hear us saying "Oh shit, what the hell is that?" and talking about you.

Don't worry I'm sure he has a lot of hours put into surgeon simulator 2013 before the operation ;D

#29 - No, you usually do NOT bleed a lot during surgery, and transfusions are very rare. Or did I miss that day on uncontrolled bleeding during surgery school?

I think 29 went to the Mengele school of medicine. Only once in 6 surgeries have I needed a transfusion, and that time I had already lost a lot of blood by the time I got there.

I'm not sure which is worse, the "what the hell is that", or coming up one short on the equipment count at the end.

Do you have much experience with 'oh shit, what the hell is that'? I sometimes read your blog, but it would be interesting to hear (read) something similar to that..

I say that all the time. Usually it's in response to a misspelled tattoo or a vial of "something" that fell out of someone's ass crack. Yes, that happened.

Oh man. I'd like to see you work. Or even be a patient of yours, but that's kinda impossible. Sadly. You seem awesome tbh.

With all due respect, you do NOT want to be a patient of mine. They've all been stabbed or shot or run over with a steamroller.

Or have a bottle up there ass. Lol Some doctors don't have great bed side manor. I'm sure some surgeons have seen a lot of fucked up and bad shit in there career and are probably desensitized to the point they can call surgery a slaughter house and not make the connection that that would scare you. Good Luck OP!

I have had local, twilight, and general anesthesia and personally I like twilight the best. When I was completely under I had to have a breathing tube and I didn't like that. When I had local, it took more than they have me to knock out the pain- so it hurt a lot. But for my heart ablationI had to be awake and that was awesome. I could see my entire chest on the monitors and my heart... Plus I couldn't have cared less about anything.
