Not for me!

I love innovative heart surgeons and techniques, but I’m not so sure about this one. Dr. Wes has blogged about a surgeon who is performing…

WIDE AWAKE Open Heart Surgery!

The mere thought of it sends chills down my spine! Let me go on the record right now, if/when I ever have another operation, I want to be OUT. I want to be so far out that I am practically in the next county. Not because of the possibility of pain, but because there are sounds in an operating room that the patient just isn’t meant to hear.

Bone Saw, anyone? I didn’t think so! Maybe this is not such a great idea after all.

    Caesarian’s bad enough in recovery…everyone coming out of some drug induced coma “oh the pain” “press the button to get more morphia”…alian space kidnapping movie stuff!!! Seriously tho’ I saw it on a documentary with chinese doctors and surgery. There is something about the flow of chi around the body and meditation. Maybe not for OHS tho’
