Three other patients were there for the same procedure, but curiously, we noticed that if not requested to be put under, the doctor will only use local anaesthetic. It was so pitiful to hear some of the patients in so much pain during the procedure!
When it was Min Ser's turns he definitely asked to be have general anaesthetic. We never knew it had to be requested, as he never did. Thank goodness he didn't have to suffer like the other patient.
One hour after the procedure he was ok to get up albeit a little drowsy. We had lunch and then waited to see the doctor to prescribe more medication and to head back home. Everything went smoothly today, and that's a good thing.
By the way, for those following this blog, you will realise that I have been updating this blog less frequently as Min Ser slowly recovers. This blog was initiated with the intent to update concerned ones on Min Ser's condition. If you are interested to read my other musings less hospital related, do feel free to follow my postings here.
