    I had an GA for the snip, came round first thing I did was lift the covers to have a look. They took me to recovery and I walked out the door 40 minutes later feeling fine. I did have a conversation on the ferry on the way home and don’t remember a word of it.

    Had 3, enjoyed the experience.

    However, do not – I repeat, DO NOT – make phone calls immediately after waking up. You might think you’re making sense but I have it on good authority that you’re actually speaking complete bollocks.

    Don’t browse cycling websites while still under the influence. I have some on one carbon monocoque 29er forks I pre ordered and bought. Seemed like a good idea at the time, they are still boxed up 5 months later!!

    They knocked me out while they gave me the snip (don’t ask, it was offered and I more than happy not to be awake for it). Woke up feeling I’d had the best nights sleep ever, felt fine.

    Last one a couple of years back for ankle surgery made me feel nauseous as hell (I had a couple of hours’ taxi ride home once I’d come round – a word of advice, just don’t, it was the longest journey ever), and got my next one the week after next. This time it’ll just be a half hour ride home. I’m not looking forward.

    Ga for a hernia op, amazing feeling as you go off. Woke up knowing nothing and feeling like I’d just had the best sleep ever. Apparently I woke up talking absolute rubbish 🙂

    Had two (Foot and nose ops) and in both cases I was out within 30 seconds of the jab and then came around slightly groggy but fine within 2-3 minutes.
    Like others I enjoyed it and felt like I had had the best nights sleep ever.

    I distinctly remember counting backwards down from ten – I got to seven.

    Had a few, but the most recent was for a hernia op in November. Woke up next to a lovely brunette nurse, who I started talking to and had to stop as for a minute or so was talking like I’d had 10 pints. After a minute was fine and was chatting to the nurse who apparently lives just down the road from me and knows a few of the people I know, and is divorced. Thinking of going back for another op soon, just not sure what to have done yet.
