The way everyone describes laughing gas sounds like how I felt. Fully aware, but unable to do anything.
But what I had was an IV with an anesthesiologist in attendance the whole time. They told me I'd be totally out & wouldn't wake up 'till she removed the IV & gave me oxygen or something.
They were wrong. I was totally awake & aware of what was going on. Just incapacitated.
Nothing inappropriate happened. I knew the female anesthesiologist would be there the whole time. I'll never forget the smell when he was cauterizing in there. I've never smelled burning rotting flesh, but I'd bet that's what it smells like. Also the heavy smoke coming from my mouth while he was doing it.
