      Hi I am going under the knife at 7:30 today it was suposed to be at 6:30 but the dr is running late I hope it wont be to late for him as he is very young like 35. Well I am having a slap tear repair and some RC work also he will know more when he goes in.
      I am reading the story about the block for your arm will they give me sedation before they do this block??
      I am so hungry now that it is pushed back I ahve to wait untill midnite to eat.
      I will get back to you guys after my surgery see ya then.

      Good luck! I was sedated for my block so I didn't even know they did it. Woke up and arm was numb. Then I was sedated again for the surgery.

      Don't worry, the surgery is the easy part. Rehab is where the work and pain are. I'm 8 weeks out and getting better through hard work in rehab. Relax and follow all directions. You'll do fine.

      goodluck!! I hope it goes well, yes I was sedated as well for the block although only lightly, so I still knew what was going on. My last surgery the OS was running late and didn't get into surgery til 6pm as opposed to 2pm, so i was starving!!!

      Have the person who is taking you home take notes when the doc visits you in recovery. I was pretty out of it and didn't remember much of what he said. My wife took notes on what he said about the procedure and what I should/shouldn't do until the first post-op visit. Really came in handy.
