Wondering about anesthesia and pain control post TKR
Johm – if I read you correctly, you had only the spinal block, and were awake/aware and viewing the surgery?

@ellerbracke my first knee surgery to remove torn cartilage in the 70s was when I had a spinal tap and no other anesthesia. I was wide awake for that surgery. This last one when I had the knee replacement I had a spinal tap and a nerve block plus anesthesia so I was under until it was all over.
