Many mentions about "did not wake up after surgery"
Over the past few months I have seen it mentioned matter-a-factly that some did not wake up after surgery. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? Obviously these folks are alive and well, but I would like more in-depth info reegrding this. How did this effect your stay in the hospital? I am gearing up for my surgery 04/16 and appreciate any insight you can give me. Is this considered ok/normal? Thanks so much Sharon

All that said and done, we were just fine. No extended stays or anything for this. And really neither of us even noticed...we were still out of it. :-D
I slept for most of that first day (surgery day). It didnt bother me much, I wasnt nauseous or anything else, just felt sooo tired and sleepy. My family was there chatting all around me, I had some visitors and was never aware that they were there. Like I said, lol, "out of it".
Good luck with your surgery. All in all, this experience was a cakewalk for me and I would do it all over again if I had to!
