Anesthesia Awareness by psaul20 Anesthesia Awareness by psaul20
I suppose surgery may not be something that happens in everyone's daily life but it does happen to some more than others. I for one am terrified of surgery, though this image isn't about tomophobia but Anesthesia Awareness instead. For those of you who don't know anesthesia awareness is when a patient who is undergoing surgery dose not receive enough anesthesia. As a result the brain remains awake and the patient can feel every cut, nip and tug performed by the doctors. The body is paralyzed so the patient can't even inform the doctor of the pain they are in. It's horrible and it's real. My image is more of a worst case scenario because the doctors are intentionally trying to harm the patient.

I've already been operated before. I think I got enough anesthesia since I fell asleep somewhere along the way... panicked when the doctor said "Oops", though. It killed me inside...

lol. You're much braver than I am. I can't stand the thought of going through surgery, no matter how minor it may be.

Thanks for informing me on Anesthesia Awareness :) I've heard of many stories with that happening D: Your art is fantastic and deserves to be more popular! :)
PS, Have you read the Walking Dead comics? This looks similar to the art and just reminds me of it.

Thanks so much for the complement. I've never really read the comic, just skimmed it, but I've seen every episode of the Walking Dead on AMC.

wow I love this! I'm terrified of anesthetic too! And heard so many stories of people waking up and feeling everything but not able to signal that they are indeed awake...
But I can't complain with the expression that woman is giving with NOTHING aiding the pain haha!

Thank you! The doctors are looking at the screen because I imagined that the viewer walked in on the procedure. I was hoping to create an "Oh crap they see me, and I'm next" kind of vibe.
