I did it and it wasn't so bad. I watched most of the surgery on a monitor but forgot some of it because of the IV sedation.
The first picture was taken in the waiting room where I spoke with my doctor and the aneshesiologist. The second is about an hour after my surgery. I was laying there waiting for the spinal block to wear off. And the last picture is me on my way home!
The first night was rough. Got no sleep due to pain. Then in the morning I overwhelmed with nausea because I had taken a double dosage of my painkiller.
