I was paralyzed and about to have to undergo a a very scary surgical procedure. I was watching a video explaining what would happen. I would be numb, but not asleep. The only bad part was when the video said, "halfway through the surgery you will need to have your stomach drained. This hurts, but it is better for you in the end." The video showed a man on a hospital bed having his stomach drained, and the doctor pulled out a long 'tube-like' thing while the male patient screamed in pain. The doctor quickly resumed the surgery after that. I was scared that the numbing medicine wouldn't last until the end of the surgery. I kept telling the doctors they needed to bump up my meds because I was getting feeling back.
