i am soon to have bascoms procedure done at Portsmouth and wondering whether sedation is recommended or just local anesthetic is sufficient. would welcome comments from anyone who has had this done before. Thank you.

I asked this question to my surgeon and he said it's not done with local anesthetic. My surgery was done with spinal anesthesia. They injected the anesthetic directly into my spine (to my surprise it didn't hurt at all) and my body below the hip was completely paralyzed but I was awake through the whole surgery which lasted about 40 minutes. The effects of the anesthesia wore off in about 2 1/2 hours. In short I arrived at the hospital at 10:00 and left walking at 14:00.

I was knocked out completely for mine, was babbling about something one second, out the next, waking up in the recovery room after that.....my anesthetic was was put in my hand, I have crappy arm veins so they put a butterfly baby needle in my left hand....
