I have a phobia of anesthesia from a tonsillectomy trauma I had when I was 10. Instead of waking up to ice cream then going home, I awoke to having to be rushed to the hospital because I almost died.
I joined a phobia clinic now to address the fear. What I need is to talk to people who have had surgery and what they experienced "going under". I'm trying to get brave enough for a colonoscopy that's 8 years overdue. I'd also like to talk to an Anesthesiologist.
