Why do you need to go to the hospital?
Can’t you manage your condition through some home remedies rather than taking medication?
Are you sure the doctor you are going to is good enough?
These are some of the questions one gets from friends and family members for any visit to a hospital. A lot many get nervous hearing or even thinking about doctors or hospitals for that matter. Whether its the equipment or the smell, the environment or seeing other patients, we all tend to get nervous to a certain degree.
But what if one requires a surgery? That is sure to open an altogether new set of questions amongst family and friends.
Is the surgery necessary?
What is the recovery time?
Is the surgeon recommended by anyone else?
Can the surgery be delayed?
I recently did undergo a minor surgery. But this post is not about the specifics of the surgery in particular. But instead, its about the after effects of staying for a night in a hospital as well as the anaesthesia which got me thinking much more than I ever have in years.
