Thinking of ML and immediately coming out of surgery today. What have you dealt with? One that I don't think I'll be able to ever forget is waking up immediately after open heart surgery. You're so out of it you've no idea what's going on. I woke up and couldn't breath properly, I was literally choking as the tube was still down my throat. I kept panicking and struggling frantically and they tie your hands around your wrists so you can't rip the tube out. I've never been so terrified in my life. I felt like I was literally drowning and tied down to something under water. You can't think logically when panicking either and it took a bit before they got to me. I'm surprised I didn't snap my wrist trying to break free. Terrible nurse, she really was. Then came the pain. Horrible experience-!!
