Doctors Postpone Guy’s Surgery Because They Needed Time To Stop Laughing After Finding All Of His Body Drawings

The idea of going under the knife for surgery is a nervewracking thought. Thanks to anesthesia you won’t feel anything (let’s hope) but it is an anxiety-filled process sometimes. One of the best ways to fight off jitters? humor – which is exactly what one guy did while waiting for his knee surgery.

One online user shared the tale of his knee surgery as a teenager. For the post-op process, things seemed to start out routine, with the doctor giving him a sharpie to mark the affected area. Well, waiting around to be taken into the operation room can take a while, so he found a hilarious way to keep himself entertained. When the surgeons found what he had done the prank was so hilarious thing fell a bit behind schedule.

There is a patient waiting on the operating table, the doctor says " don't worry Andrew, its a real simple operation, you'll do fine". The patient looks at the doctor and says " my name isn't Andrew", the doctor responds "I was talking to myself"

It's a very strange feeling, waking up after a general anesthetic. You don't have a sense that time has passed, as you do when you wake up after sleeping normally. When I had a knee operation the nurse didn't get me to count backwards. He asked me questions about the north east of England, where I'm originally from. And I was unconscious before I knew it.

My experience exactly. With regular sleep, you kinda FEEL some time has passed since you fell asleep. With induced anesthesia you lose that frame of reference. I remember feeling extremely weirded out when I went under and then woke up what felt like immediately afterwards; in reality, several hours passed.
