Scared but Numb

It was more scary when I was prepared for the theater to have my tears stitched up to the end of the process than when I was giving birth. The anaesthesiologist gave me options on type of anesthetics that I want - I was familiar to them but he made it sound complicated and risky that I was in doubt after chosing an option if it was less risky than the other. Apart from that, lots of medical apparatus were attached to my body - pulse oximeter to my finger, blood pressure machine to my arm, patches to monitor my heart beat to my chest. Just as well I felt numb from waist down, I didn't feel the pain of the procedure.
