This was the funniest comedy of errors I have ever seen! First off I opted for twilight sedation with a bier block. This renders the arm basically dead any supposedly you can't feel it. Geez, where to start? Well first, I apologize for spelling errors. one-handed typing sucks! So the CPAP they used was set way too low. That is fine since twilight really didn't happen! lol! She put the mask on me, then took an oxygen hose an just shoved it under the edge of the mask. Seal? We don't need no stinking seal! LOL! So I ended up every few minutes having to pull the mask back out of my eyeball, but at l;east it gave me an activity while I was just laying there! So the team got me all "prepped" and the doc comes in and says "Tell me if you feel this", whereupon she sticks me three times in different places with the scalpel (gently) and the fact that I jumped and said "OW!" kinda gave her the answer at which point she kinda went off on the staff! So after several rounds of more drugs, I did manage to drop off 2-3 times for a few minutes, but that damn mask stabbing me in the eye kept bring min back around! LOL!
It was an amusing round (until the drugs wore off and I could feel again! OW!) but my point here is, make sure your surgeon knows you are a CPAP patient! This doc won't even do surgery on you unless she can get a surgical suite with the CPAP! Of course we will be having a discussion on the use of CPAP and how important it is that the anesthesiologist has a clue...but that is in a few weeks. In the mean time, I will type when I can and read when I can't. Ya'll be good!
