I would think a lot of pressure and stress comes from being a surgeon. OP was just trying to quickly sort the situation, swearing in the process. He wasn't having a "tempertantrum".

Why WOULDN'T you swear if something was going wrong that you had to scramble to fix. Sadly my best comparison is when my controller dies when I'm standing in an obvious location on CoD.

I'm surprised this swearing thing is such a problem. I work with doctors all the time and when there are no clients around or can hear them they swear just like everyone else. Hell some even more.

Apparently 1 and 2 have never had surgery. If i was a doctor I'd be doing the same. I've had 7 surgeries and would not like waking up during one. If swearing helped the doctor calm down enough to put me back to sleep, have at it.

I agree with #10. Surgery can be very stressful because your dealing with someones life. If that isn't stressful enough, imagine something going wrong. Unless ofcourse, the surgery isn't a life or death situation. If it isn't, ignore my comment and just move on... *looks away awkwardly*

Yes unprofessional cursing. I would think waking up during surgery when you are the patient or the doctor, HOLY FU€£!!!!!!! Would he totally appropriate.

#3 that is the fault of the millions of people who sue doctors for ridiculous things. That's why they pay millions in practice insurance and it's why our healthcare is so expensive.

I've heard that it's so traumatic your brain blocks it out or something. I've heard friend of a friend stories about people finding out they woke up in surgery and not remembering anything.

72 & 80- You both failed at your nerding. The "flashy thing" was not a deneuralizer, the deneuralizer was the very complex machine started by a bowling ball that brought back agent K's memory. The flashy thing is a neuralizer, the deneuralizer brings back your memory from getting neuralized. Pardon my extreme nerd moment. .

Actually it's a neuralyzer. A deneuralyzer would give her memory back. Oh btw I spelled that word the way they spelled it so yeah. I'm a nerd :(

And let me guess, another typical self-hating American who doesn't know jack about their medical care, or someone from another country trying to jump aboard the "hurr durr silly Americans" bandwagon?

56- So would you rather the anesthesiologist gave her too much anesthesia, and she overdosed? Too little is better than too much, and because everyone is different, there are certain variables that go into determining the amount of anesthesia necessary. You can't be certain that the patient will or won't wake up. And lawsuit? Are you serious? Doctors can't gurantee a patient will stay under--they never do, so there are no grounds for a suit. The parents can't bitch about: "You promised!" like spoiled 10 year olds, because nothing is promised in the world of medicine. Get your facts straight.

Talking shit on people you don't know? You're kind of an ignorant fool. Most likely op was worried that he almost put a minor through a traumatic experience. some doctors care, you know?

That's the problem with people today. If something even slightly goes wrong sue the doctor. Its because of people like you that malpractice insurance is so god damn expensive. Yes us doctors make a decent amount of money but that's after years of med school and years of internship and residency. Not every little thing is a basis for a lawsuit. Personally I'd rather give up my practice than give people who would sue for anything medical treatment. Yes it was the anesthesiologists fault but everyone makes mistakes and as long as it wasn't fatal or cause damage then calm down. Doctors are under a lot of stress especially when they could lose their entire profession over a "simple" mistake. I don't believe anyone looks at it from the doctors perspective anymore. So he swore big deal if it helps him concentrate then get over it and grow up.

I'm pretty sure that for most surgeries the patient is forced to sign an agreement saying the patient cannot sue of anything bad happens, or the doctor will not perform the surgery. But that might not have been the case for this particular surgery.

JayJ17: First of all, speculating about why OP cursed is just that. Speculation. Nobody but OP and God know why they were cursing, so it's not for us to say. Secondly, the patient does have a right to sue, but it doesn't mean the case will hold any ground. Again, no doctor can gurantee the effectiveness of the anesthesia, and I'm sure they tell the patients that there is a chance (albeit a slim one) that they will wake up during the operation. This way, the patient cannot say that they didn't know this, and there won't be any grounds for a suit. Doctors are good about covering their asses for situations just like this. Third, fuck you. Who said anything about backing up every single American? Just you. You're probably the kind of person that would sue a restaurant because the waiter spilled your drink. That is all.

118 - Doctors deserve every cent they make. They go to med school for years before they are qualified to be a doctor, then they work ridiculously long hours every day, at one of the most stressful jobs in the world. Doctors spend their days trying to improve or save other peoples lives, many of those ignorant jackoffs like you who jump to sue at the tiniest, most harmless mistake. Dumbasses like you are why heathcare cost so much, because doctors have to cover their asses with insurance so that ungrateful sons of bitches such as yourself don't throw the people trying to save their goddamn lives into the street the first chance they get. So yes, he is worried about getting sued. Because of moronic bastards like you. Now fuck off.

Actually, she'll most likely not remember anything when she wakes. I have woken up during surgery, twice, and remember nothing. I had to be told I woke up during the actual surgery. This is an FYL.

It's all just a big conspiracy, right 5? I wonder if the aliens did it. Seriously though, someday you might be in an emergency and need medical assistance, and they might be the only ones keeping you alive. And when that happens, you have to trust them, so I wouldn't talk bad about them.

155, I know next to nothing about anesthesia, so I'm seeking a little clarification on this... How is it that they can't know if the patient will wake up? I mean, you'd need to get the levels right to induce unconsciousness right? So, how does this change during the surgery? How is it predicted? What are the variables that can influence it? I always thought that if they put you out you were pretty much set and the only way you'll wake up is if the anesthesiologist did something wrong...this worries me :P As far as suing, I suppose if people can be sued in any other profession for any incident then it only seems fair that this trend continues in medicine too. Though what really makes the difference is whether or not it was necessary to do so, and I think I'd be suing for the cost of surgery if I was woken up and could get away with it. Like any service, if it is performed poorly you should get your money back, or compensation made up to the amount paid by the individual. The only time it is acceptable to go beyond this is when your day to day life is affected. But this is just my opinion on it, as an outsider.

Thank you so much 98! Not all doctors are bad. Many are very caring for their patients and stress over their lives. You could ask DocBastard a thing or two about that, maybe even check out his blog.

273 the patient can wake up paralyzed and therefore unable to tell the surgeon they are awake. there is a group of surgeons working on making it so the patients arm is unaffected by the paralysis so they may alert the surgeon, i don't know how far the research has progressed into practice yet but i saw it working on a documentary so probably not too far off...

Admit it, you are just a stupid stereotypical brat. Yet another reason why nobody likes broken condoms because they produce retards like you...people like you are only being judgmental and racist and polluting humanity!

296, I was meaning more what changes during surgery that the drug that induces unconsciousness fails to keep the person that way. I would have thought if it was strong enough to put them out, maintaining that level would suffice. I imagine it may be because keeping that dosage may be harmful and it is better to reduce it once unconsciousness is reached but again, I really don't have the first clue about how it all works.

I've had multiple surgeries, most during my childhood, and I was told that I woke up multiple times, and a few times I wouldn't stop "talking" (lol... Probably sleep talking?) and not ONCE did I remember any of it after waking up. So I doubt she will remember any of it either.

Reply

I woke up in the middle of surgery when I was 7 and they gave me gas as well. I was so traumatised that to this day I cannot have anything placed over my mouth and nose.

I still get called a child by the older generation and I'm a 21 year old college student. However, I'd bet someone who was closer to my age would probably say I was an adult. Like I said, it's all about perspective.

Based on the other comments she was either traumatized her entire rest of her life, or she is perfectly fine and does not remember anything about what happened.
