Well, I’ve had 4 surgical procedures done, 3 of them were colonoscopies. In this case, you really don’t think about it until the prep – which is a really crappy (literally) day. By the time you’re through with that, you’re so drained that sleep comes easy.
The 4th was a knee surgery. I had implanted a sharp of steel into my knee on Saturday (actually a piece of a splitting wedge that had mushroomed over shot off and into my knee). At the time, I just thought I had cut it. Sunday, things were getting worse, so I went to the ER on Monday morning. By Monday afternoon, I was under a general anaesthetic getting the offending piece removed (it was about 1 mm from actually entering the joint capsule). So no time to lose sleep over that one.
