Hi All- well it will time in 3 weeks it will all be over . I am starting to really over think things a the moment. I have my work 'to do before surgery list', family 'to do list before surgery', a things to buy before surgery list and trying to keep busy. I am a big reader and that normally helps me to relax but think my mind is working overdrive so cannot keep focused on any books at the moment. I also keep thinking that maybe my knee is no that bad, but really the other side of my mind knows it is and what has to be done. I am also really anxious about the anesthesia - i know the spinal with sedation is the norm now but i want a GA. i have had GA's before with no problem, read 100's of articles and papers re pros/ cons of spinal vrs GA, read the hospital handouts and i still will oped for a GA. But in the UK you do not meet the anaesthetist until you are very nearly ready to go to theatre so not at your best for a big debate of the pros and cons of different methods. I guess i just wanted to know if anyone else is wanting a GA?
