    There is a new brain monitor that doctors use during surgery to make sure pts don't awaken--while still paralyzed from anesthesia--during surgery. I think every hospital should have one.
    My husband had a deviated septum repaired a few yrs ago and he bled out the anesthesia. The dr. didn't believe him until husband repeated their conversations verbatim.
    Took him awhile to get over the bone-breaking part ... lots of people can hear it, but he actually felt it.


    P.S. I personally don't care what they say during my surgeries, as long as it's not "uh-oh!"
