MORE ON THE KNEE REPLACEMENT
Wednesday, January 09, 2013
Some of us have had a discussion about being put under or being numbed from the waist down.
After the anesthesiologist asked questions and found out that at the last surgery where they put me under they were going to take me to my room and I told them I couldn't breathe they told me I could. I kept telling them I couldn't so they put oxygen on me and what a difference it made. She realized I did not need to be put under so chose the numbing. I feel good about that. I will be more in control of how I feel.
Several of you have told of your good experience with this. She said she would keep me comfortable. I really like her.
She used to be an anesthesiologist for cardiology and loves my cardiologist. Now she is working with her husband. That makes me feel even better about her.
