Turns Out It’s Not Required To Count Back To 10 Before Anesthesia Kicks In And Here Are 30 Stories Of What Actually Happens
We all have seen it in the movies: the nurse puts in an IV or attaches a mask and the anesthesiologist asks the patient who's about to get surgery to count down from ten. That's how many of us who have never had surgery probably imagine it actually goes. However, recently, a Twitter user who has undergone surgery was surprised to find out that this is not the case. Instead of counting, the nurse just said "goodbye" and that was it. Apparently, the method of checking whether the anesthetics are starting to kick in is outdated and not used as often these days. This revelation prompted people to share their own stories of what happened before anesthesia kicked in, and believe me, most of the responses are not what you expect. Scroll down to read some of the best stories Twitter users had to share!
