How often do you see a doctor?

Do you mind shots?

Have you ever had day surgery or outpatient surgery?

I go for my annual physical next week. Yippee. :( I rarely have occasion to get shots, though my physical involves bloodwork. I don't mind it.

I've had a bunch of outpatient surgeries. I can never remember them all. LOL. Tubal ligation, breast reduction, gall bladder, breast biopsy.

Hi Katz,


Goodluck with your physical.

Oh dear. What's up? Why does a young thing like you need those 2 tests? I've had both. The place I go gives me what is called conscious sedation. They need you to be awake in order to cooperate--swallow the tube, etc., but you don't remember a THING afterwards. :) I love it!

I was due for my yearly physical in November, but didn't make an appt. - I'll have to make one soon


I hated them when I was a kid, but they don't seem as big a deal after getting blood drawn all the time & getting iv's


I've had 1 outpatient surgery for a breast biopsy a few years ago - thank goodness that was the only one

I've had a lot of stomach discomfort so I went to a specialist and these tests were recommended.

Well, if you get this conscious sedation, there's nothing to it. :) Since I don't remember a hing, as far as I'm concerned, I wasn't there. LOL. I understand that if you're awake, both tests are kind of icky. :(

My doctor said he'll be giving me valium (sp?) and it will put me to sleep and that I shouldn't feel or remember anything.

Hi Susieq,


I hope when you get your physical all is well.

Hi Katz,
How did your appointment go? I hope well.

My procedure was over before I knew it. I wasn't awake for any of it, not that I remember anyway. :-)
