Twilight sedation

Recommended Posts

Hey, im a little nervous about the twilight sedation. I had a friend say they were told when they woke up that they had talked throughout it? Any stories would be great. Haha.

Im having twilight as well.

Im feeling confident that these days its pretty safe & widely used in sydney.

Though alot of this girls had not heard of it or thought it was riskier.

Im confident in my surgeon and im sure yours will be fine too.

They monitor you closely throughout and can administer more local or sedatitive as required.

When are you having yours done?

I had Twilight & would do it again tomorrow without hesitation! Don't remember anything until I was up & dressed eating biscuits & drinking tea :p It's not as hard on the body as general (they say - I've never had it so can't really compare) & you don't need a tube down your throat as you breathe on your own...

It's fabulous! A couple of seconds after the canula went in I was out to it, next thing I knew I was waking in recovery feeling like I'd just had a nap. There was obviously a tightness in my chest & it was really hard to take a deep breath but I felt fine. I walked out of recovery, straight into the car no probs. I was in & out of TCI that morning of my surgery in 2 hours! Amazing :)
