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.
