Being put to sleep before operation?
I am going to be put to sleep before they test me for celiac desease im just so scared about being put to sleep that the whole test seems horible, yet if i was awake it would hurt...alot they are sticking a small light into my intestines and going to take a tissue sample. Its just that the whole feeling, being forced to black out just is so scary any advice?
Additional Details

You're not being FORCED to black out. which anesthesia are they using?
I was put to sleep through IV (the vein on my arm) when I had my surgery. It wasn't bad at all. I just got really sleepy and fell asleep. By the time I awoke, I was in the patient recovery room... It's really nothing to worry about. :)

okay I feel and know your worries.

I have had to be put to sleep (let me count) one moment please,,,,,4 times and on #5 I was so so under not all the way due to they had to ask me my pain levels before my last back surgery.

When you go in they will give you an IV then put the meds in. Shortly after they will ask you to count backwards from 10 to 1. I recall my last surgery as I was counting I said 10,9, 8, huh wait 10, 9, 8 7, forget it I'm going to bed. Everyone in the room LOL and I was down for the count. When I woke up I couldn't wait for my pain meds.

For me to get me to go through it all I had to motivate myself. By saying if I went though it I would not have the problem anymore. Plus I would get the good legal drugs. Well that worked for me.

Point it is not that bad just think of it as taking a short nap. You never see or feel what they are doing and that is a good thing in the end.
I wish you luck. Your in my prayers.

Well Timothy, I don't know about the whole operation, but I do know that being put to sleep during the operation is painless and nothing to be scared about. I was bit by a pitbull back in 3rd grade and had 3 surgeries done before they finally healed me, but they had to put me asleep for that. And It's just like regular sleeping at night. You don't even know you're fallign asleep. You just get drowsy, and the next thing you know, it's all over. I know what it's like to be scared, but don't panic or worry, because i know you'll be fine. =)

Have had many tests and samples taken. Take the sleep before, you don't feel anything and wake and don't hurt. You will be glad. You just get sleepy and then wake up, all done. GOOD LUCK.

They will most likely give you a pill and an injection before the operating room. These will make you feel so good that you won't care what they do next. They put you to sleep with a drug through the I.V. in your arm. You wake up in what seems like an instant later. Don't worry. It's a piece of cake. You're gonna like the way you feel after those first drugs. What a hoot.

If patent's sleep, doesn't matter. He will stand up.

But the Doctor's sleep, Patent's never stand up

Don't worry it is not that bad. You won't feel anything at all. They will probably put an iv in you and then they inject the stuff in you that makes you go to lala land. You don't even remember going to sleep. Its not bad at all. I had a long surgery when my appendix ruptured and they had me asleep for a long time. I was only 8. The only advice i can give you is to ask the doc a lot of questions. Don't be afraid to tell him that you are scared, he will understand! Good luck and hope your surgery goes well!

These days anesthesiologists will give you a mild sedative before giving you the sleepy stuff. The sedative, in the words of my anesthesiologist, "makes it so you don't care part of your body's gonna be cut out, much less that you're going to sleep through it all."
I don't remember much after he gave me the sedative through my IV. I remember just feeling like I was really tired.

Next thing that happened, I was in the recovery room, screaming for pain pills :)

And you will feel SO refreshed. There is no more restful sleep than that of anesethesia. You'll feel like you've slept for days. It's amazing.

Only advice you can really get is trust your anesthesiologist. He'll be your best friend :)

while they are prepping you for surgery ask for valium. tell your nurse or doctor (whoever you see first) that you are so nervous you really need something to calm your anxiety. also if i were you, i would try to get as little sleep as possible (i know everybody tell you to rest up but this is why...) if you are so tired while they are prepping you, when you take the valium it will knock you out, then they will start giving you the general anesthia for your surgery and you will be out cold so the next thing you know you will be awoken by your nurse. so make sure you are alive and well. when you are under general anesthia, the anesthesiologist remains in there monitoring you so if you have an adverse reaction they can give you something to counter it. also the thing about not sleeping is this- after your surgery it will hurt - they just cut you right open and you will have to heal. however they give you plenty of medication. but thing is , if you are awake you probably miserable. so if you don't sleep well pre-op then afterwards you will be out like a baby and hopefully sleep through the most painful part

good luck

Actually the best advice is to try to relax. In hindsight it's a lot less scary than people tend to make it out to be the first time. It happens very quickly, and is painless.

Ever fall asleep and wake up the next day not remembering falling asleep. Like one minute you're awake, the next you're waking up? That's what it's like. No dreams, no consciousness.

You will likely be disoriented, and have no idea what time it is when you wake up, but the post-surgery pain is probably the worst part. And by the sounds of it that won't be so bad compared to many procedures.
