View Full Version : Anesthesia

O.k. I know this is an odd thread and I surely don't want to offend anyone but I blog entry I just made got me to thinking about this so here it goes. Back in 1999 I got breast implants which I have never regretted. As some of you know, they do have a shelf life so to speak and I am coming due for either new implants or some sort of plastic surgery to put them back where they belong. I am nervous about the anesthesia and being raw. They do anesthetic based on weight and not health. Has ANYONE else had any experience with anesthetic while raw? I was NOT raw when I had the initial surgery and this has been weighing heavily on my mind. Again, I've been thrilled with my implants and have never had one ounce of regret ~ until this anesthesia issue popped up for me. Thanks to anyone who responds. :)

I was "knocked out" once a few years ago and I was 100% raw. I had no bad affects, and was actually grateful for it. :o (dental issue)

Last January I cut my thumb on a slicer making zucchini pasta. (don't ask, I'm the biggest clutz) I cut straight through to the tendon on the underside of my thumb and had to have surgery to reconnect it. It was a detailed enough surgery that they needed to put me out for it (besides, locals would have been excruciating!) Ouch!
I was concerned b/c I had been raw 2 years and wasn't sure how my body would react to being put under, I already reacted bad in the past when I wasn't raw. Anyway, everything went just fine. I did get terribly constipated afterwards (like not going for over a week and being in SEVERE pain when I did go) but since I was raw, I think it was a bit better than the last time I was given anesthesia (getting my tubes tied after having my last child). I think the worst thing was the pain killers they gave me AFTER the surgery. I was in a great deal of pain, but I only took the hard pain killers once b/c they made me feel AWFUL. I used lighter stuff (but still not raw) like tylenol and Aleve when I absolutely had to.
Good luck to you!

Justine, I had to have a total hysterectomy and oophrectomy in March (I am 37). At the time I was 99% raw and totally terrified of the anesthesia and pain meds, but I had very little choice (long story). I did great and healed amazingly fast!! I did have some constipation, but stuck with my green smoothies as I believe that helped. Good luck to you, let us know how your experience goes!
