Have you heard any stories about what happens to a person, when they are under during surgery?

I don't even know what I am asking to be honest.

I've heard stories of people leaving their bodies during surgery,and returning to awaken.

I suffered a heart attack about 3 years ago.It was determined that I would need a bypass,as my heart was almost completely blocked on both sides.It was so bad that my doctor told me,that only 3 or 4 people out of 10,even make it to the hospital.

I'm not saying that anything happened to me when I was under.I've always thought that nothing would be able to knock me out like that.Then,I had my bypass.I just find it so strange that even though I'm alive,I don't know the world even exists for 12 hours.That was my 1st major surgery.It's such a weird feeling.

Sheesh, 20? And you are so young....

I had surgery four years ago (on my knee). I was talking to the nurses, next thing I knew I was in the recovery room begging for a cup of coffee and something to eat...and shaking like a druggie comin' off whatever it was they gave me. No strange occurences. Sorry luv.

Yup, over 20 surgeries, and I had over 3 quarters of them before I was even a year old. I was in the NICU (Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit) in the University of Minnesota Hospital.

20 surgeries?And I was walking around,after I could walk far enough again,like I was a big shot.Like it was my idea to have the surgery,and I was Barney Fife.

I was always a coward when it came to doctors.I had to almost die,before growing up.

Never had any surgeries, but I have heard of OBE's happenning when people are undergoing a surgery. Could it be that the mind/soul is leaving the body so as to reduce the physical pain? Or say, to see what is going on?

i have had a few surgeys before and cant report any strange happenings, i remember when i was getting my tonsils out, and in recovery waking up and was convinced my nan was the lady recovering on the trolley next to me, i had at that moment woke up and was trying to get to the trolley next to me shouting nan.
I know this was me awaking from a dream but that seemed pretty real and she had died about 4 years previously.
I like to think that i was with her when i was asleep.
I LOVE U ALL

Ididn't have anything too unusual happen when I had my surgery on my elbow. I remember sitting in the room and then nothing -- at all -- until I woke up. I was having a major asthma attack when I the brought me out of the anesthesia. That's about it.

Hmmm, I'll let you know after Monday. Going under for a double root canal.

But I can't remember anything strange from having wisdom teeth pulled or knee surgery!

I've never personally had surgery, but I have had a fever so high that I was hospitalized and delirious. Now THAT'S some strange buzz, lemme tell ya!

(on the fever note, I do still experience those delirium symptoms, without the actual fever....and I have had some tests done, as far as anyone can tell nothing was damaged by that original fever that would explain why)

I took a baseball bat to the eye once. It required stitches to close, and I wasn't sedated during the procedure. Now that was wierd.

Well, nothing interesting to report. Actually, don't remember a thing from the time the needle went into the hand until I woke up shivering from the drugs they gave me to bring me out.

All together, very boring and sleepy experience.

I've had 6 surgeries and don't remember a thing from any of them - however one thing really strange happened after my last operation when the nurse tried to take away my morphine - thought I was going to have to get out of bed and kick her @#s. Jeez - it had only been 4 hours since I got to my room. They were sure ready to send me home the next morning.
