putting you to sleep for tummy tuck- could u wake up in the middle of surgery an not be able to open ur eyes to let the doctor know.. im scared of that happening to me.
Waking up during surgery unlikely
There is a lot about this happening everywhere you look. It can happen and probably happened more often in the past when general anesthesia was improving.
In this day and age with the huge improvements in anesthesia and all the monitoring, it is very unlikely for this to happen.
