I did the above before my surgery, l made the decision after my daughter  had watched her own pending surgery live not TNR.l became intrigued hence the above. Far from freaking me out l found it fascinating, when l am suffering l have a mental rewind that takes me back to what l saw and then it all makes so much sense.l know most people will say they would not want to see that,l myself am glad l did it's fascinating. Hope some replies are positive,

    You're braver than me as I did try to watch it but had to hide behind a pillow every now & then as to me it was a bit like trying to watch a horror movie! When I had my second TKR on 18/4/16 the anaethanaethetist was desperate to use a spinal block which I agreed to on the condition that I didn't hear or see anything!

    I did the same before my surgery.  I wanted to totally understand what was happening to my leg.  My hubby thought I was crazy, but I was glad I watched it.

    You sound like me--the eternal everlasting curiosity bug has never left my brain.  As long as there is something to learn from anything--I will be there. wink
