The penile surgery that I underwent involved a combination of local (actually spinal) anaesthetic and "twilight sleep" drugs. My surgeon would have preferred a general anaesthetic, but based on my bad after-reaction to my last general, the anaesthesiologist chose the combination. The only problem was that the surgery ran longer than expected, and the spinal wore off before the surgeon was *quite* finished. I didn't feel pain, exactly, rather discomfort and a sense of being, well, manipulated. -- John Cowan <jcowan@...> I amar prestar aen, han mathon ne nen, han mathon ne chae, a han noston ne 'wilith. --Galadriel, _LOTR:FOTR_
