In real life, yes.  I got electrocuted really bad as a kid and woke up several days later on an operating table.  Long story...

*sits back and gets ready to hear said long story* biggrin

As for myself, no, but I have had part of an operating table (the overhead uber light of doom that hangs from the ceiling at a dental office) fall down onto me when I was a wee lad. That was fun.

My wife has.  She was getting a new generator and woke up when they were closing her up.  She heard 'em talking about it being difficult to close her and that he might have to use staples.  In a drug induced slur she forcefully told the doctor, "I don't WANT staples!  I don't LIKE railroad tracks!"

"What," replied the doctor.

"I don't LIKE railroad tracks!"

Then the anesthesiologist gave her more happy-juice and she woke up in recovery.

Never woke up on an operating table during major surgery... but I'm the type who during minor surgery (carpal tunnel, ie) keeps chatting with the folks.  When I say "should I be feeling that?" - suddenly the anesthesiologist adds something to the IV... and I go to a very, very nice place -  a planet where all is well with the universe...  :lol:

When they were sewing up my guts after I was wounded they gave me a spinal anesthetic as they need to keep me awake for some reason.They placed a "curtain" at my waist so I couldn't see what was going on down there.I really didn't want to see anyway. :shock:

Crap, I woke up in the middle of my wisdom teeth surgery, to the oral surgeon chipping away at one of the teeth with his chisel.  I started to groan and he said in a surprised voice, "You can feel that?"  And I was like "Uuuuuhhhh huuuuuhhh."  So he gave me another injection and I made it through.  I guess I just metabolize that shit fast because after the surgery, I was fully awake instead of being groggy and reeling.  Fun stuff.

I had a Commie 64 computer capacitor blow up on me (I was young, I thought unplugged meant uncharged - seems those little bastards hold juice for a while).  In short, it shredded a few inches of my left cheek, from the corner of my mouth to the midpoint of the cheekbone.  (You could see my teeth through the side of my face)  I couldn't talk and I went into partial shock so my mom thought I had drank Drain-O - a logical conclusion given the damage.  She rushed me to the hospital and during one of the skin grafts to repair the damage I woke up during the surgery.  Scared the hell out of me, but a quick zap of something in my IV and I was back in la la land again.

Just that one time. They told me it went well and that I should take the antibiotics since where they removed the kidney it might get infected. Come to think of it it was less like an operating table and more like a back alley and the nurse was more of a hot redhead with a scruffy looking guy for a doctor...hey wait a minute!

Years ago, I had a lung collapse on its own.  Doctors said it was just a birth defect.  I am very tall and skinny, and they said a dime sized portion of my left lung didnt inflate properly.  It was going to happen sooner or later.  I had to go in a second time for a chest tube.  They were leading me down, and I asked if they would put me under, and they said no need.  But whatever they gave me about 30 seconds into the procedure, put me out.  I remeber the doctor drawing with a marker on my side.  Then out.

I woke up, JUST before he inserted the tube, he then informed me that,

"this is going to hurt a bit'...

A bit was a understatement.  I guess what they do is push the tube against the inside wall so they know how far to go, and then pull it back a bit before they secure it.  MAN, it hurt.  You know when they dentist or doctor tells you this wont hurt, and it kinda does.  When they tell you its going to.  IT DOES!  ALOT!.

Anyways shortly after the pain, i was asleep, awoke in intensive care.

I also had to have my jaw wired shut after it was busted SEVERLY in a fight.  Ok, well not a fight, I got jumped while out with some friends.  I didnt wake up on the operating table, but when you have your jaw wired, they stick a tube down your throat.  I woke up post surgery gaggin on it.  All I remember was them throwing HOT blankets on me, YANKING the tube out my nose, and I could feel it all the way from my stomach.  And then I was asleep.

Chest tubes are fun!  Got to watch one go in my first semester in nursing school.  Saved her a ton of money by doing it in the patient's room instead of the O.R., actually.  But it was pretty brutal.

They used conscious sedation on the patient via Versed, which is sometimes referred to as "Milk of Amnesia."  It leaves the patient able to respond to commands, but they're so out of it they don't remember any of the procedure.  Well, they're not supposed to.  Mark's a fluke. :wink:

Most of the procedure is kinda boring, but when they finally SHOVE the tube in, it's rapid, forceful, and brutal.  The patient grunted like she'd been sucker-punched in the stomach by a professional boxer.  One of my fellow nursing students almost fainted it bothered her so much.

I miss those days.  biggrin

That's 'cause you're a man of iron will.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go start IVs and insert foleys.  :wink:
