I woke up in the middle of my 4th or 5th exam...and I absolutely remember a very uncomfortable and painful feeling. I got pretty restless and the doctor turned up the juice and i wnet back under. Usually i wake up with in minutes of the finished procedure...when the doctor came in I mentioned that I remember waking and he confirmed that I did wake and that I was not very pleasant to deal with at that moment.
A few months later they had to do another...I reminded the doctor of my last "painful" experience. He said it just a one time thing and to not worry about it (basically he blew it off) I told him i was happy that he was so confident...but that it was my body and therefore my pain so it was easy for him to be so uncaring. Then I mentioned that if i woke up during the procedure ever again I would make sure that he and I both got to share in the pain.....the last two times he performed the procedure I never felt a thing...of course I was so far under it took at least 30 minutes to wake up after. I guess he wasn't willing to chance my suffering.
