im due to get an operation next week (which i have needed for 18months grrrr). anyway im getting another pre op assessment as other ran out but been told that it will prob be the same in that the op will be done under a spinal with a nerv block with the understanding that if something goes wrong i will be knocked out...this is the issue i have- is it too rude or too much to ask if the operation doesnt go to plan and they want to knock me out, then i ask them to stop instead? also has anyone on here had a spinal done, if so whats it like? im very very nervous about having this done but so excited that i might actually not have as much pain as normal.
