Man Tries To Fight Off Anesthesia For As Long As Possible Before Surgery

May 12, 2018

This is a video of Nick accepting a challenge from his pal Andrew (who also recently underwent surgery) to see how long he can fight the anesthesia before passing out. Unfortunately, the anesthesiologist is so excited to be a part of the challenge she fails to administer the drug before his original countdown begins, so he starts again and lasts to 14 counting down from 20, with a long pause before 16, which, if he's anything like me under anesthesia, is presumably when he vacated his bowels. Although, to my credit, I also punched a doctor and had a long dream I was an airplane.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to my buddy Dave L, for reminding my personal record is making it all the way down to 98 from 100.

    As much as I sort of love drugs (I'm not an addict. I don't even take tylenol unless I'm really hurting) I kinda don't ever want to be put under for surgery. I don't even want to have surgery ever for any reason.

    I was out on the gurney before they even had me wheeled into the theater.

    Sounds like our Batman and Robin movie viewing experiences were exactly the same.

    Yea, no. Just had surgery and told them no sedatives. Being awake was so freaky and unnerving but awesome at the same time and painless.

    Being under is such a freaky experience. I would not want to be taped.

    SCIENTIFIC FACT: Saturday GW posts are at least 7 times as orgasmic as weekday posts.

    Years ago, I had some knee surgery done where it was intense enough to put me completely under... I tried the same. I remember trying to tell a bad joke... Hey doc, will I it keep me from playing the violin? This is your knee, you should be fine... (in the background I also heard)... oh God, I saw that coming a hundred miles away. Will someone please turn up the gas?... my knee is fine...

  • Is it worth being first? You get downvoted so quick I only see your "first" posts at the bottom of the comments anyway.

    Maybe try posting with the word "BEST" and see how well you do?

    First implies best
